About Kailua Town Kailua is a charming beach town on the lush Windward side of Oahu, and Kailua Town is at its center! Kailua is loved by visitors and locals alike for its laid-back vibe, relaxed pace of life, and breathtaking natural beauty of the ocean and mountains that surround it. Two world-famous beaches can be found right here – Kailua Beach and Lanikai – famous for their soft, white sand and crystal blue water. The Koolau Mountains rise up a short distance away, their green, almost vertical ridges are impossible to ignore from any vantage point in Kailua. Top that off with an incredibly temperate climate and cooling trade winds that bring rain throughout the year to keep things green and lush, and it’s easy to understand why Kailua is considered paradise.
While the pace of life here is considerably slower than it is over the mountain in Honolulu, there is plenty going on in Kailua, and much of it happens in Kailua Town. Kailua Town is the town center and its business district. A number of small shopping centers line the roads in Kailua Town, home to grocery stores, coffee shops, boutiques catering to a beach-chic lifestyle, surf shops, and restaurants.

The mixture of businesses suits Kailua, whose residents are stylish but casual, well-off but unassuming, active but love a good meal.
