I have lived in Kailua for seven of the last 10 years, and this has consistently been my favorite stretch of the long beach facing Kailua Bay. It is less crowded than Kailua Beach Park but still offers the same excellent view, calm waters, and...More

This is a nice spot; good facilities. The beach view is fab. Close to some eateries across the street. However....some unpleasant odors from the creek.

Great access point to Kailua Beach, but hardly any parking as this one has a pretty small lot. However, unlike the others, Kalama had a great working shower and open restrooms - the others at Kailua Beach were closed - hopefully under renovation, but there...More

We ventured north on one day and stopped here to walk along the beach. I can see where it could be crowded, but heading north you avoid the average tourist crowd. Typical beach trash can be found with many helpful locals!

We rented a vacation home one block away. The beach was a short walk and easy access. Not to much parking so get there early. Very private and not crowded. Morning walks are quiet and views are stunning. Evenings are beautiful and soothing. Love this...More

Small, rolling waves, sandy bottom, and beautiful view of the whole bay. It's got quite a bit of little bits of garbage (mostly plastic) due to the current, but bring a bag and help the environment by picking some up as you walk along. Not...More

Kalamas Beach is the best surf spot at Kailua Bay - when the conditions are right. Quite often good for body surfing or with boogie board. Parking sometimes tight. Parking in neighborhood - please respect privacy of residents! Wide open beach. Great for kids. No...More
