Taking a drive over to the Windward Side begins very dramatically when you head over the mountains on the Pali Highway, stopping for a fantastic view from the Pali Lookout! Take binoculars, if you have them, and your camera of course! After stopping at the lookout point, head down into Kailua town.
In Kailua, go straight to Twogood Kayaks and rent Kayaks for yourself and those with you. They offer different adventures, guided tours and turtle safaris. Head over to lovely Lanikai beach for a beautiful and leisurely place to kayak the waters of Windward Oahu. Travel a little farther down, to Kailua Bay, for more Kayak time and to enjoy the spectacle of wind and kite surfers who flock to this beach! After you return the kayaks, enjoy a little shopping at the cute boutiques of Kailua, such as nearby Maya Bella, where you will find great beachwear, accessories and one of a kind treasures. From Kailua take a drive towards Kaneohe to see the gorgeous Kaneohe Bay and then continue up the coast for a spectacularly beautiful and relaxing drive with lots of spots for more beach time, stopping for a bite of lunch along the way. Allow time for the return drive and head back to Kailua, stopping to take in the gorgeous sunset over the mountains, and then enjoy a delicious dinner at The Grove offering globally inspired island cuisine from award-winning Chef Fred DeAngelo. This will surely top off your day on Windward Oahu!
