This place has changed from years ago. No more driving right up to the place. There's now a parking lot & viewing area looking down on the beach. Everyone's now getting to know the place, so be patient. Still had a good time with family

Kalama has just enough waves in the surf to make it fun body surfing and jumping waves but does not leave you feeling beat up. We kept coming back to Kalama beach. Parking is scarce - but you can park up the side streets near the park. The park has a shower facility for rinse off after coming off of... More

Kailua beach is one of the best beaches in Hawaii. A five mile arc of white sand beach, reasonably protected from stronger waves. Great swimming and body surfing too. Kalama beach park is a smaller but nicer park than the larger Kailua beach park. Get there early as parking is limited, especially on weekends

Like all the others have mentioned go early if you don't want a headache of parking! This beach is normally clean and clear. Lots of people doing activities so be safe and keep an eye out.

We stayed next to Kailua Beach, but someone told us about this beach about a mile further up the coast. It is better for boogey boarding which is what I like to do. We went two different afternoons, and parking is very tough. Had to park across the street in an addition one time. The beach is quiet, and did... More

This is a great beach for just walking, sitting all day reading a book or riding the waves on a good day. It is easy to understand how this beach routinely is on the list of best beaches. There is limited shade for those who prefer to avoid full sun. There are bathrooms, a place to rinse off and limited... More

After driving around the island, it's clear: this beach was by far the nicest on Oahu to spend a day in the water with the kids. Parking might be a challenge.

While shopping we expressed our concern of missing the sun set at the ocean. We turned and there it was across the street-a popular spot to watch it. Wow nothing like a Hawaiian sunset! Also before or after cross the street to stop in the KALAMA VILLAGE-a bargain hunters delight. Mark Tiki Chic Boutique was willing to give a discount... More

We walked here for the sunset last night and it was a nice spot, however there was only 1 picnic table we could see closer to the toilets/showers and no view of the water. We didn't see any benches or even rocks to sit on. Only option was the sand. The toilet was locked when we left at 6 ish.

can be tough to find parking and they close early except for 1 night a week. Warm water and safe place to hang out.
