Wailua Bay information
Lonely Planet review
Despite its natural beauty, this sandy bay is generally a ‘drive-by’ attraction. The water is typically too rough for swimming, although a summer surf break towards the south draws locals and surf students. The sweeping stretch of sand is nice for walking but its location at the heavily trafficked Wailua Bridge makes the beach annoyingly visible and noisy.
