All beaches in Hawaii are public property open to everyone — which means that if you’d like to lie on the 800 feet of pristine sand abutting the luxurious Kahala Hotel & Resort, a favorite of celebrities and royalty, you don’t need to book a room. There’s a public entrance to the beach next to the Wai’alae Country Club: just follow it along the shoreline, past the white gazebo, and you’re there. (Cheekier folk have been known to pass through the hotel’s lobby; we don’t encourage such high jinks.) After you’ve finished sunning and swimming, check out the six Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins in the hotel’s lagoon. There are daily shows, with frequency varying according to the season.
