The Basics

With a wide sandy beach, relatively calm water, and ample picnic spots, Kailua Beach Park is a family favorite. The beach is a short walk from Kailua Town, a lively small community with grocery stores, a number of restaurants, cafés, coffee shops, and boutiques. Many visitors opt to just relax on the beach and swim in the clear water, while others take advantage of water-sports rentals and get out on a kayak or kite board.

Great adventure day kayaking
Ben was an awesome tour guide. The 5 hour trip was filled with fun, beauty, adventure and just lovely people. We had an absolute blast and want to do it again!! Ben made sure we were all safe which made me feel really good since I had my 10 year old along. So fun! I highly recommend this outing!

Just a trip to the beach

Kailua Beach Adventure- Snorkel and Boogie Board excursion
For me it was a pretty much a go it alone tour, being I was the only one on the snorkle trip. Took a 20 minute walk up a hill and down a hill to another beach where there was more coral, and turtles. I made it a good trip for myself, but would have prefered to do it with a group. Don't bother taking the boogie board if the water is flat. Transportation to and from my hotel was great, and they pack a nice lunch for you.

Everything was great, the guides, our driver, really kind people. Only thing was we had a late start so we weren’t able to do all the activities. They booked more than what was planned and so we had to make other stops that weren’t planned and that is why we were so late on getting started

The ocean conditions were extremely choppy and windy today. We weren't able to make the island we were supposed to because of the conditions. We were able to land on a nearby beach. From the advice of our guide Jordan we snorkeled and were able to see several sea turtles.

This was our friends first time in Hawaii- we had done the kayaking before and wanted to be sure and take the trip again. It was awesome!! One of their favorite days for sure. Paddling out to the island is great exercise! Hiking the island and then jumping off the “cliff” was something we will never forget. Great Guides - very personable and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend. Notes: there were issues with food orders that caused us sight delay in getting started and the paper Maps provided for parking instructions are not great.( We used Google maps. ) but overall- these minor issues are barely worth mentioning. It’s a great day!

Great Kayaking experience out in the ocean. The guides David & Tyler were super kind and well versed on bits of history and information about our location. It was a bit scary and thrilling experience.

Guides and service were great. They should group people by level when winds and surf are that high. 11 of 26 in group made the paddle. But that’s weather more than the service. Taylor and Ben were awesome!

How to Get There

Kailua Beach Park is on Oahu’s windward coast in the town of Kailua.

City buses run frequently to the park from Waikiki and towns all over the island.
