“Beautiful Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Kailua beach is about a 30 minute drive from Waikiki depending on traffic and time of day. I take the Pali highway and make sure you stop at the Pali lookout. It is spectacular. Kailua beach has more wind than Waikiki and the surf is stronger so be careful with children. The public change areas are dirty. There is lots of parking. On windy days you can watch wind surfers. Buzz's steak house is a few minutes away and has great food. One of my favorite restaurants on Oahu

“Beautiful Beach, terrifying bathrooms”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

This is a gorgeous beach, great for kids and adults to swim, the afternoon shade is wonderful. However, the homeless problem in Hawaii is so bad that the bathrooms are like a village for them. They also look like something out of Haiti after the earthquakes. They are the grossest and most scary bathrooms I have ever seen. I cannot believe the town of Kailua has allowed this and have not rebuilt them. My friend who is a lifeguard there says they find crack pipes and heroin needles in and near them so do NOT go barefoot, especially the kids. When they tried to clean the pigeon poop off the rafters it required hazmat suits because it was so thick!! Barf. Come on Kailua!! Get it together and clean up your beach!!

“The beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

This is the best beach for relaxing on Oahu. It's the family side of the Island. Sometimes they drop off too many tourist visiting Honolulu to walk around for the day. Kailua is a nice casual town with a friendly family community.
