Refresh: Shave Ice at The Local Hawaii
Kailua Favorites - Ali McMahon of Olive Boutique
Beach Spot - Lanikai in the morning or early evening when its uncrowded and serene! Lots of dogs and neighborhood people :)
Lunch Date - Buzz's is a fun atmosphere for lunch! Near the beach, great cocktails and food! We usually order the Chop Suey Salad and the Fish burrito! The "Freshy" with salt rim is a must for cocktail! We also enjoy Cactus for lunch, really great Ceaser salad and Torta! Also their Risotto and Guacamole is yummy!
Cocktail Hour (restaurant and what to order) - Not much of a cocktail our town (so unfortunate!!!) But we do love to go to Kalapawai for great wine and a really good dinner! I love the pizzas and the fish of the day over Risotto!
Must Do - Rent a SUP board on a calm day and go out in the ocean for a paddle, have lunch at Buzz's, grab a cocktail at Cactus then start shopping at Olive and Oliver :)
Must Buy from Olive- Must buy a locally made piece of jewelry, a easy beach cover up and a Kai product to remind you of your trip in paradise!
