Kailua’s location has come to be one of the most desirable areas on the island. Hawaiian translation is “two seas” or “two currents.” It is home to two of the world’s best beaches, Kailua Beach and Lanikai Beach; over 3 miles of glistening white sand and sparkling turquoise ocean waters. Kailua is a mecca for ocean enthusiasts as the waters here allow for championship windsurfing, paddling, kayaking, swimming and walks on the beach with unimaginable sunrises.
Once a sleepy beachside town, Kailua has developed into a major tourist destination and has some of the priciest real estate on the island. Local, mainland and foreign buyers gravitate to this area of the Windward side seeking spectacular oceanfront estates, exquisite view properties, and a lifestyle reminiscent of older times.
There are 27 neighborhoods within Kailua’s 96734 zip code, all of them desirable and sought after. Kailua Town offers top-rated restaurants, unique boutique shopping, several organic markets, and is a nice walk and bike friendly community.
