Kailua is a neighborhood located 12 miles from Honolulu and is a largely residential area with a population of roughly 36,000 people. People are drawn to Kailua for its proximity to the water and the numerous activities available here. Kailua is home to spectacular beaches as well as two lagoons. In fact, in Hawaiian, Kailua means two seas which many believe are these two lagoons. Kailua is thought to be one of the oldest inhabited spots on Oahu and is home to one of Hawaii’s best beaches (if not the best beach).
Kailua Beach is crescent-shaped offering 2.5 miles of sand on which to stroll or find yourself a spot to lay a towel. The surf is perfect for beginners as it is considered to be milder than other surf spots and the lack of coral is safer for those learning how to maneuver their boards. The beach is also one of the top spots in Hawaii and known worldwide for kiteboarding and windsurfing due to its steady trade winds.

The public schools include Aikahi, Enchanted Lake, Kaelepulu, Kailua, Kainalu, Keolu, Lanikai, Maunawili and Mokapu for elementary schools, Kailua Intermediate School, Kalaheo High School and Kailua High School.
