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.

  • We grabbed breakfast at a little market and walked here to enjoy the view while we ate. It's a beautiful beach and we wished we'd had more time to enjoy it. I would definitely go back.  more »
  • This beach is the perfect place to relax and enjoy life in the moment. It's a smaller beach and less crowded than the previous beaches I've been to in Oahu. The soft white sand and clear blue water were the best part of the beach. A good size parking lot and public shower made this beach easy to access. Most people here come to relax. You don't see much surfing or paddle boarding but we did attempt at paddle boarding here. The trees in the back provided a good amount of shade. On a winter day in Hawaii, the sun was out and a small breeze came through. I was enjoying my time here after hiking two days in a row. It was definitely a nice break. Kailua is an amazing area to live and vacation in. It's your getaway from the city life where you can enjoy more of the nature side of Hawaii and a breath of fresh air. A perfect spot for a nap on the beach.
  • There's a reason this beach is rated so high! Calm waves and amazing sand, no coral around either! Bathrooms, rinsing showers, and more amenities on site along with plenty of parking. Whenever I want to just chill on the beach during the week, this is where I go! Just beware of it being grossly filled with tourists on the weekends, so much so that you won't want to go.
