Kailua Travel Guide
Welcome to Kailua!
Kailua is located on the eastern side of the island of Oahu, also referred to as the Windward Coast. Only 12 mi (19 km) northeast of Honolulu, the smaller, mainly residential city of Kailua shares many of Honolulu—s larger accommodations and tourist attractions. Kailua is known for its natural clear blue water and white-sand beaches of Kailua Beach Park and Lanikai Beach, both of which boast world-renowned waves that are ideal for surfing and kite boarding. Visitors can experience the adjacent Kailua Bay and Pacific Ocean on boat and kayak trips or on a snorkeling tour. Cultural points of interest include the Rankin Gallery, the Lighthouse on Kukailimoku Point and the Allegra Performing Arts Center. Visitor accommodations within the city are predominately offered by local bed and breakfasts and vacation home rentals.
Located on Kukailimoku Point, this active 1915 lighthouse is a pyramidal reinforced concrete tower, painted white.
