This is one of my favorite beaches on Oahu on the windward side--Kailua beach. During the day the water is a bright, clear blue and there's a small island off to the left of this picture called flat island. I have gone with several different groups of friends to wim out to it. The swim is a considerable distance, but it's fun to look back on the shore and completely worth the effort if you feel comfortable as a fairly strong swimmer. I took this photo as the sun was coming up and barely anyone was around. It's so peaceful and so beautiful early in the morning. For anyone that's considering a trip to Oahu, this is one of the top beaches that I would recommend visiting.
