Key Residential Features
Located just 30 minutes from Honolulu and Waikiki, the quaint beach-town of Kailua couldn’t be more removed from the hustle-and-bustle of big-city life. It’s a beach-town, through and through, a scenic slice of Hawaii tucked between lush mountains and sparkling azure waters where life moves a little slower and the smell of salt lingers in the air. This self-sufficient little town of just 36,000 offers a strong sense of community in a setting of truly spectacular outdoor adventuring.
The star of Kailua is Kailua Beach Park, two miles of pristine white beach, gently-crashing waves, and endless opportunities for enjoyment. Its moderate waves make it a popular destination for surfing, bodyboarding, and windsurfing, though swimming, leisurely scenic strolls, and sunbathing can also be found a-plenty. There are several inlets of calm water perfect for gentle swimming, and kayak rentals are available for paddlers to venture across the bay to Flat Island or the Mokulua Island.
Lanikai Beach is another popular destination for beachgoers and hikers alike—white, powder-like sand and a breathtaking hiking trail along Keolu Ridge to WWII military bunkers can be found here.
Though small, Kailua is a highly connected community, and this means a great deal of community involvement in events and celebrations. Annual festivities include Christmas and Fourth of July Parades, while more casual events include block parties, canoe paddling events, and farmers markets.
Shopping & Dining
Kailua brings its own unique brand of shopping and dining to Oahu, separate from the more commercialized big-box stores of Honolulu and Waikiki. From the Kalapawai Market and Crepes No Ka Oi to the Global Village and Olive Boutique, Kailua offers a refreshing taste of local, unique, and beach-casual.
Kailua is served by Hawaii Public Schools and is located in the Kailua-Kalaheo Complex Area. Included within this complex are five elementary schools, one combination elementary and middle school, one high school, and a Learning Center.
