A visit to Kailua, an upscale beach town on the southeast side of the island—about a 30-minute drive from Waikiki—makes a perfect day trip: both Kailua and Lanikai beaches (which are about a mile apart from each other) are postcard-perfect, with calm, crystalline water, and a number of charming restaurants and boutiques when you need a break from the sand. Try Buzz’s Original Steakhouse for a classic, fun old school Hawaii atmosphere (you’ll swear you’ve been transported back to the 1950s) and super fresh grilled mahi mahi.
