Kailua has a small-town feel, with its famed white-sand beaches and turquoise waters. Located just 15 miles and 30 minutes from downtown Honolulu, many have said that as they leave Honolulu and enter the Kailua area through the Pali Tunnel, they immediately feel a sense of peacefulness and relaxation. Perhaps, it is the beautiful views, but it also could be the friendly and laid-back people who live in Windward Oahu.
