What are the best beaches for swimming in the Kailua/Kaneohe areas? We're seniors, enjoy swimming and snorkleing. Will be there early Oct. Thanks!
Welcome to the Hawaii forum
Kaneohe really has no swimming beaches that you will enjoy.
Head to Kailua beach.
You will find an award winning beach that will be safe and easy to enjoy.
Walk the beach for a special time. Strike up a conversation with the people that walk that beach.
Not the best for snorkling, maybe by the boat ramp, or you will find some coral heads at the beginning of Lanikai, right next doorEdited: 22 September 2011, 04:05
Thanks! Sounds great!
Good info from jet. Another option is to look at Waimanalo. Very similar to Kailua but sometimes less crowded. Some would say the beach at the Waimanalo State Recreational area is even nicer than Kailua. It's about a 15 minute drive from Kailua.
