Kailua Beach Park is a wonderful park and beautiful beach. The park is big with lots of space for picnic and bbq's. There's plenty of benches, a restroom facility, and parking lot and street parking. Across the street from the park, Buzz's Steakhouse is a local popular restaurant that's been there for years. The beach is clean, easily accessible, safe, and full of things to do.

Lovely long white sand beach and a cute little town make this perfect for just about everyone. The wave break is gentle, but not TOO gentle--just the thing for more cautious swimmers and wave jumpers.

Tired of the Waikiki crowds and Honolulu's congested traffic? Drive (or take the bus) over the pali (mountains) to Oahu's Windward Coast. Kailua Bay has some gorgeous beaches for swimming and kayaking (best in the morning, when ocean waters are usually calm) or windsurfing and kitesurfing (best in the afternoon, when the wind picks up). If you want some more hidden pockets of sand, head just east to residential Lanikai, on its own little peninsula, where you'll find public walkways down to the beach.

Kailua Beach Park is in the windward side of Oahu, on the lower eastern coast, next to the town of Kailua. It has a nice large park next to it with picnic tables and gazebo covered areas for the occasional tropical shower.
There are facilities here so you can hang out here for hours in comfort. The water is not rough on the beach, but rather more timid, so it is a great family destination. But you will see a lot of singles that come here to learn how to paddle a boat, as this is the home of a local Hawaiian Canoe club, and you will almost always see 6 man boats paddling through the waters training. You can also rent equipment, usually 1 or two person rigs for you to enjoy the waters, or paddle out to the flat island just a bit out into the waters.

Kailua Beach Park is one of the most beautiful beaches not only in Hawaii but the world and being between KALAMA and LANIKAI beach is pretty special...It has everything you could want in a beach and is great for families. Plenty of sunny and shady places for the family to have a BBQ or picnic. The water is perfect in its shades of green and blues, its temps of between 75-80 degrees are to dream for. This beach sometimes had pretty good winds and that is why Windsurfers call this beach home. When the winds are picking up you will have some decent waves to have fun with for body boarding. If there is no wind there will be very little waves. Perfect either way! Kailua beach is a must see so plan on spending a half day here and dont forget to pack a lunch or picnic. If you are feeling lazy just stop at the "KALAPAWAI MARKET" it's a GREEN building, you cant miss it. It's right before you enter the Beach Park road next to it. You will find everything you will need for a killer picnic. They have a great sandwich and a deli area in the back as well as chips, drinks, ice cream and all things BEACH! Over the years Kailua Beach Park has really become over populated with tourists, kayakers and Buses...New laws have been put it place to change that...and JUST IN TIME...Thank God. Hopefully Kailua can get back to some form of normalcy and quite down again for it's residents.

This long, white coral sand beach has a lot to offer. The north end generally has bigger surf, the south end, at Lanikai is the most protected from wind, and the calmest. Beginning kayak surfers can try out the little break by Flat Island, just a short swim from shore. Snorkelers here swim eye to eye with honu, the sea tortoise.
