“Great for Kids by Boat Ramp”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

I have been to this beach more than any other one on Oahu... the state is great about making sure the sand get replenished when storms erode it away. Kailua has good winds for kite surfing and on most days water is calm enough to do stand up paddling as well as swimming and kayaking. What is fun for the kids is jumping off the boat dock. The park around the beach and the 3 restroom areas are clean and safe... Parking can be very much a challenge... Highly recommend this beach and it is good for walking all around the perimeter.

“Quintessential Hawaii Beach”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

This is the Hawaii beach you visualize in your mind. Beautiful long stretch of sand. There is shade if you need it. Stand up paddle/kayak rentals nearby. Beautiful views with turquoise water.

“Good sand quality; pigeon population growing”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Small parking area means very few visitors can come to this beach. The sand is the good white powdery stuff you come to expect from a good beach. On a weekday, there were still kids running amok. BYO everything... no vendors nearby to get your beverages, food, towels, etc.

“Another great beach in Hawaii”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

This beach is expansive and covers a large area for recreation. If you want the public beach feel with a lot of activity buzzing around you, this is the place for you. If you go 5 minutes down the road you can find Lanikai beach for a more private peaceful walk and dip.

“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

This was easily my favorite beach to relax at while on Oahu. Just beautiful scenery, good swimming, nice beach with many shade areas. Restroom facilities fairly clean for a State Park. The parking lot is a little small, but there is some off street parking available.

The drive from Oahu, past Hanauma Bay, around the island to Kailua is one of the prettiest drives I've ever done.
