As with other Hawaiian towns, Kailua offers clear water, warm sand, and plenty of ocean activities. Multiple options for snorkeling, kayaking, diving, and more exist along the sandy shore of Kailua Beach. For the most beautiful panoramic view of the beautiful Hawaiian beach, spend an afternoon atop Kailua Pali Cliff, which overlooks all of Kailua. For another breathtaking view, head to the top of Ka Iwi Ridge. It's just a short hike away and offers stunning views of the Mokulua Islands and Koolua Mountains. You will also want to pay a visit to the Kawainui Marsh, which is Hawaii's largest wetlands and freshwater pond: This historic and beautiful landmark simply can't be missed. And, when you're ready to get some rest after a long day in paradise, Hotels in Kailua are just as beautiful and relaxing as the beaches.
