Oahu Neighborhoods

Oahu Neighborhood Profiles: Kailua

Windward Wonderland

"Beautiful Beaches and Rhapsodic Views"

Kailua, the largest community on the Windward side, is Oahu’s windsurfing capital, and Kailua Beach is one of the world's most beautiful shorelines. The 42,000 lucky people who reside here enjoy a relaxed lifestyle in lovely, moderately priced neighborhoods, with excellent restaurants, parks, libraries, schools, shopping centers and a pleasant downtown.

Residents commute to work on the Honolulu side of the island via two beautiful conduits, the Pali and Likelike Highways.

You know you're in Lanikai when you see Moku Nui and Moku Iki, the two beautiful islands that are the idyllic landmarks of this affluent community. In 1924, the first neighborhood developers gave this prime beachfront property its name, which means "sea heaven." It's the perfect name for this heavenly place.

The down-home, shoes-off comfort of Waimanalo can be attributed to the fact that it has the largest Hawaiian population in Windward Oahu. Homes, townhomes, duplexes, condos, apartments and rent-to-owns are in the affordable category.

The setting is gorgeous: Lacy ironwood trees shade the white sands of Waimanalo Beach, with the primordial beauty of the Koolau Mountains forming an awesome backdrop.
