Public beaches are scattered along west coast of island. Some are rocky, some sandy. Be prepared for big waves on windy days. Young children should be supervised.
Just a couple of miles away.
The closest beach is Kahalu Beach Park which is approximately 2 miles from the condos towards Kailua. It is a great place to take children who wants to snorkel to see marine life. Green turtles frequent the beach and there is a natural sea wall outside the beach that makes the area really safe. White sands beach is about 3 miles towards Kailua and is recommended for good swimmers since it does have waves that are about 2 feet to as much as 4 feet high. My children have enjoyed playing and swimming at both beaches.
