Stopped here for a bit and it was absolutely beautiful. Softest white sand and calm waters. you have to park on the street with million dollar houses.

The sand is white and pure.
The water is crystal clear.
There is great swimming and snorkeling to be had, with lots of marine life to be seen including sea turtles.
There are beautiful islands just off shore for the adventurous types.

This was by far our favourite spot on all of Oahu.

Good - Most beautiful waters on Oahu. Not very rough and mostly shallow. You can see some marine life including turtles
Beautiful island around the beach to which youc ould kayak and for the extremely adventurous swim :)
Nice showers


Bad - No water activity rentals on the beach including kayaks etc. You need to make a half a mile trek with a dolly to carry those
Not many signs leading upto the beach. GPS can help

We stayed a week on Kailua Bay Nov 14-21, 2011 but spent a lot of time on Lanikai Beach and it is not to be missed. Great white sand, wonderful blue water, close islands to boat to. The best part is you really have some beach to yourself and a nice long area to walk on. One of the best beaches in the world, not to be missed...

The sand is fine, the view fantastic. Unfortunately, the water is not clear enough for snorkelling and there is no shade at all.
