Kailua is not only one of the best residential beach communities on Oahu, but also one of the premiere beach communities in the country in Tim and Tracey’s opinion. Kailua Beach has been ranked #1 on Dr. Beach’s list of top beaches in the country twice after Dr. Stephen Leatherman (Dr. Beach) started his top ten list in 1989.
Kailua Bay is one of the friendliest beaches for swimmers and other casual ocean activities while also being home to a variety of wind propelled enthusiasts. Tim and Tracey have been actively engaged in the ocean activities common in both Kailua Bay and Lanikai Bay next door. The predominant trade winds push waves towards the shore and the bays relatively shallow floor and protective reef minimize rip tides and other dangerous currents. On most days, the water is clear and free of hazards. There are only a few times per year where brown water advisories after heavy rains or man of war sightings on the sand will keep swimmers out of the water.
Kailua offers the opportunity for many other outdoor activities for those that do not play in the ocean every day or several times per week. Mid-Pacific Country Club offers first class golf, and the Kailua Racquet Club is arguably the best tennis club on Oahu. Olomana Trail, Maunawili Trail, Maunawili Falls Trail, and the Lanikai Pillbox hike have world class views and the variety in difficulty appeal to a wide range of outdoor enthusiasts.
More tourists visit Kailua now then in decades past, but residential zoning prevents Waikiki type crowds. The tourists that do visit allow residents to enjoy downtown restaurants and shopping that might not be available otherwise for a town its size. Kailua hosts iconic restaurants like Buzz’s Steakhouse, Assagio’s, and Cinnamon’s plus newer local favorites like Maui Brewing Company, Lanikai Brewing Company (Tap & Barrel), Kalapawai Market, Easy Q, Over Easy, Boots & Kimo’s, and Moke’s Bread & Breakfast. Island Treasures showcases works by local artists and artisans.
Since the completion of H-3, Kailua residents have easy access to three major roads into Honolulu’s business districts and to military bases located in Kaneohe and Pearl Harbor. The Pali, Likelike, and H-3 allow for comparatively easy and shorter commute times that attract many professionals, military members, and defense contractor employees to this active community.
The dominant trade winds keep the Kailua climate cooler throughout most of the year compared to the Leeward Side of Oahu and Kailua enjoys more sunshine than its rainier neighbor Kaneohe because the Koolau Mountain Range is farther away from Kailua Beach and the town center.
