What’s hot about Kailua?
Welcome to Oʻahu’s lushest, most verdant coast, where turquoise waters and light-sand beaches share the dramatic backdrop of misty cliffs in the Koʻolau Range. Cruise over the pali (mountains) from Honolulu and you first reach Kailua, a pleasant place with an extraordinary beach.
Even though Kailua is located just 30 minutes away from Waikiki and Honolulu, it may as well be halfway around the world. It’s location on the island’s windward side makes it greener and more lush than Honolulu; and while it’s atmosphere could be described as a calmly vibrant, it certainly doesn’t have the fast-paced energy of Waikiki.
The town of 38,600 has a relaxing effect on people. Walled off from Honolulu by the corrugated cliffs of the Ko’olau Range, Kailua has none of the dazzle of touristy Waikiki—no hotel towers, ultra-lounges, or high-priced shopping malls. Instead, it offers the relaxing pleasures of an unpretentious small town, but in a supremely blissful, tourist-free setting.
Kailua is home to a long, graceful bay which is also protected by a coral reef. The nearly 4-mile-long stretch of ivory sand is made for strolling, and the weather and wave conditions can be just about perfect for swimming, kayaking, windsurfing and kitesurfing.
From picturesque Kailua Bay you can see three cartoon-looking islands—Flat and the Mokuluas, or “twin islands”—floating just offshore. In addition, Kailua Beach Park, toward the bay’s southern end, regularly garners awards as one of Hawaii’s top beaches.
The atmosphere is low-key. Once people visit, they start thinking about a second trip, or a third. The most famous returnee is former President Barack Obama, who spent time here as a child and who has visited regularly on First Family vacations.
