Located on the windward (wind facing) side of Oahu, this 12-mile, 40,000 population city is one of Hawaii’s most pristine beach communities. Given its beautiful location, it is among the most expensive real estate in Hawaii. With its untouched beauty, this city still sometimes attracts the likes of celebrities, who want to avoid the paparazzi madness.
The beauty we speak of in regards to this beach city is exemplified in its top-ranking Kailua and Lanikai Beaches, which are frequently mentioned in tourist guide books. Think soft white sand, calm light turquoise waters, tranquil breezes, and panoramic tropical views. Perfect for a dream day out on the beach.
Kailua feels like its universally made for all. Here, you will find families, singles, young couples, and older retirees. There is a beautiful sense of community paired with so much activities to partake in. And for the youngest of residents, every school in the area is ranked high on greatschools.org. This is truly a city of all around greatness.
