    Best Beach!
    One of the best beaches that I have ever been to. If you are looking to get away from Waikiki crowd, go here. Very nice sandy beach, not crowded, crystal clear water. Kailua town itself is very interesting.

    Favorite Beach in the World
    This beach was so nice we went twice. We are seniors so this was perfect. Totally beautiful, ample parking, bathroom, clear calm water, some trees, perfect sand which does not stick, calm breeze.

    Nice beach but poor facilities
    We chose Kailua Beach over Lanikai Beach, as we heard it can be impossible to get parking there. It was a bit difficult getting to Kailua with lots of roadworks in the area. Got a park straight away at Kailua, although it was a weekday afternoon. Lovely big beach and partner even thought he saw a turtle swimming. The beach facilities could use some upgrades. We changed as quickly as possible as the changing rooms looked really dirty and smelt disgusting. The beach shower was surrounded by sand so it was difficult to wash your feet. Some workmen were moving sand from a footpath, which seemed like a waste of time as it just blew straight back. Would have been better to clean around the beach shower.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Kailua Beach is on Oahu's eastern side. It's in fact the same beach as Lanikai, divided only by a small river.
Imo, it's one of the most beautiful on the island with amazing sea, palms and sand.
Plenty of parking in front (free) makes it much more accessible than Lanikai.

Beautiful beach for a long walk along the shoreline to the north. Also, a short walk from the boat launch along the road south to Lanikai Beach public access points.

Beautiful area in the green East side of Oahu. Nice drive to get here from Honolulu taking H3 or 61 over the mountains or taking 72 around the south side of the Island.

The views were breathtaking and as pretty as a postcard. We went during the week when the kids were in school so parking was a snap. The sky and the sea were a deep blue and the sand was snow white. As pretty as a picture.

My favorite beach on the island. The sand was so soft and almost white, the ocean a light teal. Tons of parking, sprawling so didn’t feel crowded. Loved it!

A gorgeous beach with golden sand and palm trees. Water has the color of emerald. This is a beach you must not miss if you come to Oahu.
