Definitely a great place to visit if you don't like the crowds at Waikiki Beach. You can do tons of sports activities from canoe to parasailing. A bit windy and the water was a tad cold but other than that, a great Hawaiian gem. Super busy on the weekend, limited parking.

Boat ramp for launching, designated swimmer only area 1,000 yards along the park, designated kite surf launch site, 2.5 mile beach to walk/jog, shade trees and shower/bathroom facilities. On calmer days kayaks and standup paddlers launch and visit offshore islands.

We just got back from our very first trip to Oahu. After spending almost 2 weeks there and seeing the entire island we thought "why would anyone want to leave Kailua." The beach park was a great place for a young family because the surf was so small we didn't have to worry about our little kids getting swept away.

Superb beach with fine soft sand, beautiful water and fun but not scary surf for boogie boarding or paddle boarding. Best if you can park elsewhere, parking is really limited.

Kailua beach is a must-see! It is easier to access than Lanikai because it has a big parking lot, and actual facilities. The beach itself is stunning, and what most people consider ideal. The sand is soft, the water is clear and impossibly blue. Although it was busy, we had no trouble getting a parking spot and we didn't feel... More

There is a small car park right at the beach, so if you're lucky you can find a spot here. The water was so blue and very calm, so it’s a nice place for a relaxing beach day. There weren't too many people when we visited, so we had a lovely time. The waves are very small and there wasn't... More

I live a block from this place and after over 50 years I still never get tired of walking the beach; especially at sunrise....what a spectacular view, Catch the #56 or 57 bus to Kailua from Ala Moana SC and either transfer to the #70 or just enjoy a leisurely 15 minute walk to this beach. I usually take a... More

Lots of locals and tourists sprawled across the soft as silk sand. The water was perfect for swimming (clear, not many shells or rocks). The park has showers to rinse off after swimming. The bathrooms were being remodeled, but they did have port-a-potties on site. Couple down sides - it was busy and parking was a little difficult. You will... More

This a great great beach with lots of activity yet never seems to crowded even at peak season. This is more of a family swim place as opposed to surfing place. Popular kayaking and kite boarding spot . As it faces more north its a great place for the sun avoidant, like me. Palm trees cast some shade out on... More

Very nice beach for family to swim or just soak it all in. A nice beach with small waves and beautiful sand. It has (3) bathrooms open to the public.On windy days you can watch the kite surfers gliding over the water. Sit back and enjoy.
