Directions to Kailua Beach Park
Kailua Beach Park is located on the Windward side of the island at the end of Kailua Road, in Kailua. If coming from Honolulu, take the Pali Highway (61) through the tunnels and down into Kailua Town.
Pali Highway becomes Kailua Road just after Castle Hospital which will be on your left. Continue down Kailua Road. At the triangle intersection of Kailua Road and Kuulei Road, veer to the right and stay on Kailua Road. At the second signal intersection, you will need to turn left to stay on Kailua Road. Continue straight through the intersection of Kailua Road and Kalaheo Street, and you will enter the parking lot for Kailua Beach Park. The concession stand is at the far end of the parking lot. There is accessible parking just after and to the left of the small circle turn around area in front of the concession stand.

Kailua Beach is known for its wide fine white sandy beach. Typically there are very small, if any, waves. As always, it is a good idea to check with the lifeguard for current conditions before entering the water.
