One of my favorite beaches on the island is Kailua Beach Park. It’s got a sandy bottom, pretty calm waves, and beautiful blue water. You can kayak to the flat island in the distance, stand up paddle board, kite-surf, or just relax on the sand. It’s about a 30 minute drive from Waikiki, and you have to rent a car, but it’s totally worth it. Or go just down the street and visit Lanikai Beach, consistently voted as one of the best beaches in the world! Just standing on shore and looking at the blue-green expanse of water always puts me in awe of God’s creation.
People bring their dogs here to play in the waves, so it’s nice to be able to have Kona along! He loves bounding into the ocean to retrieve his ball 🙂
Malia loved swimming in the ocean, riding her boogie board, and making sand castles. I enjoyed watching her delight in the “big waves”!
Can’t wait to come back after delivery and go kayaking or stand up paddle boarding!
We worked up an appetite on the beach, and picked up sandwiches from Kalapawai Market on the way home. I loved their kalua pork sandwich with melted cheese, homemade coleslaw and guava BBQ sauce…so yummy! All in all, a great beach day 🙂
