Kailua Beach Park
Kailua Beach Park
A tropical beach lover’s paradise!!
Kailua Beach is where American royalty and presidents come to play. See Oahu's most spectacular turquoise water and white sand beach.
About 30 minutes away from the buzz of Waikiki Beach, you’ll find azure blue and crystal clear water, three miles of fluffy sugar-white sand and gentle trade winds at Kailua Beach Park. Average temperatures are 75°F or 23.89°C making this a perfect year-round destination.
Kailua Beach holds the unique distinction of being named “best beach” in America as well as previously making the “best world beaches” list by multiple experts.
The surf offers an exciting ride for windsurfing, kite boarding and parasailing but is calm enough for beginners as well. Kailua Beach was the childhood home of world champion windsurfer, Robbie Naish. If you are up for the adventure, rent a kayak and row to nearby Popoi'a Island (also known as Flat Island), or to Mokulua Islands for the day.
The best area for families with small children is near the boat ramp where the water is calmer and lifeguards keep a watchful eye on swimmers.
The beach is framed with palms trees and ironwoods that provide shade to the sand and a large park with picnic tables, a bike path and facilities.
West of Kailua Beach is Kalama Beach with mild waves and a great place for learning how to surf and body board. East of Kailua is her sister beach, Lanikai Beach, another beautiful stretch of world-class sand, although less accessible with limited parking and no facilities.
Nearby you’ll find the charming Kailua Town with a variety of restaurants and shops including the Island Snow shave ice made famous by President Obama and his family’s visit.
Pay attention to beach warning signs. Jellyfish usually invade the beach 9-12 days after a full moon. No need to ruin your vacation with a painful sting.
