Stephen Leatherman, known as America's beach expert, ranked Kailua Beach Park the best beach in America in 1998. The water attracts surfers and bodysurfers to its gentle waves. The beach itself slopes slowly into the water with no coral or rock. The shallow water and slight incline make swimming easy. Take advantage of the regular trade winds and try your hand at wind and kitesurfing here. Use our Kailua holiday planner to arrange your visit to Kailua Beach Park and other attractions in Kailua.

  • Very nice beach and not too crowded. I didn't get in the water but my cousin said it was nice. Prepare to find a parking space. It's a good size but gets full quick. Lot of shade from pine trees. Local people wind surf, parachute surfing, and are quite fun to watch. The city is beautiful to visit and place to eat. We did not eat there because we were on the move quickly.
  • Beautiful soft white sand and gentle waves on a light trade wind day. Spend the day with friends and family and pack a picnic or a BBQ. Go for a swim out to Flat Island just be careful of sharp coral and your feet. Remember to bring sunscreen and hats. Enjoy watching the East side sunrise and take a walk the bay is about a mile & a half. The moon rise is just as beautiful weather permitting.
  • Beautiful park and beach. Great place to bring the family for the day, picnic, swim, snorkeling, kayaking. Public washroom and change rooms available. Benches conveniently located near to beach with great views. Was very windy when we visited. Clear water with lots of fish. Definitely recommend
  • This was a beautiful beach and there are showers and bathrooms available. Parking lot was full when we arrived but we managed to snag a spot as someone was leaving. Theain breakers are quite aways out so I think this beach is surrounded by a reef, which made it a good place to go paddle boarding. The island was fun to paddle out to. If you want to be able to walk the path around the small island, bring shows as it was too rough for bare feet. The beach park had plenty of shady areas and it was also a great beach for swimming.
  • Wonderful beach, very sunny and nice to walk on with bathrooms nearby. There is a rental service for kayaks and paddle boards which you can take out to see the reef and turtles. We saw tons of turtles, it was a wonderful experience! Wear lots of sunscreen though, the sun can be really strong.
