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 found this during my research of beaches to stop at on a drive around the island. The parking lot is decently sized, but it has a good turn around so there are always people coming and going. This beach and area is very beautiful, with soft white sand beaches, and turquoise waters. The ocean floor was very soft and had gentle waves. Looking up and down the beach, there were scenic views. This is a very popular place as we saw some wind/kite surfers, and loads of people relaxing and enjoying their beach day. We walked up and down and got in the ocean for a little bit. We wish we had more time to spend here. On our next visit, we will definitely be back and will be dedicating a beach day here.
5 Star beach suitable for families and surf sports. Sea, sun and sand with amenities and good parking whats not to like about this location. Washrooms for changing include outdoor showers (could do with more routine cleaning). A beautiful spot to visit and relax even if it is on the way to another location.
