In the heart of Kailua Town, there are plenty of affordable options for shopping and dining to your heart’s content. The area boasts acres of pristine beach parks that offer awesome points to go windsurfing, kayaking, surfing, swimming, and sunbathing. It’s also within proximity of historic attractions that draw visitors to book Kailua Beach vacation rentals.

Beautiful turquoise waters set the tone immaculate Kailua Beach. Take advantage of the shading palm trees and enjoy a picnic with the family, or rent a kayak and enjoy an island excursion. For a more adventurous getaway, book an eco-enjoyable tour that delves into everything from remote caves to tide pools. There are adventure tours designed just for water sports, too. When the sun sets, the nightlife in Kailua Beach warms up—it’s lively, fun, and atmospheric, and it’s easy to catch a live band or hit up a local dive bar for a little casual fun.

When history and nature collide, Kailua Beach happens

Once you arrive at your Kailua Beach vacation rental, you’ll quickly discover that the area is brimming with incredible beauty and historic attractions. The Ulupo Heiau State Monument is a reverential area that recalls fascinating Hawaiian history. Families who came with a togetherness goal may want to head to the Lanikai Pillboxes, an absolute paradise for hikers whose reward is an amazing view. From Kailua Beach Park, it’s possible to glimpse incredible Popoia Island. And what would the area be without the wetland wonders of Kawainui Marsh?

There's no place like home--except Kailua Beach

What happens on the first day you check into a Kailua Beach vacation rental? Besides absolutely melting into a puddle of utter bliss, you’ll realize that you never want to go back home, thank you very much. Kailua Beach offers the kind of clear, sunny, occasionally windy environment that essentially defines The Perfect Weather Day. Rarely does the temperature fall below 65 degrees, which means nearly every day is someone’s definition of perfect. Summer and spring are especially friendly for those who love water sports, while winter provides at least 4 months of clear skies.

Everything is current in this beach of two currents

There are two currents that run boldly through Kailua Bay, and they’re the reason we lovingly know the area as “Kailua,” or “two currents.” It all makes sense when it’s so simply explained, yet there’s something far deeper here than sparkling sea waters. Situated in Windward Oahu, it’s about a half-hour drive from Honolulu and is largely appreciated for its celeb-favorite beaches and postcard-perfect backdrops of Mount Olomana. The natural wetlands of Wai Nui Marsh are home to exotic wildlife, including adorable sea turtles and rare birds.
