Kailua means “two seas,” a fitting name that references the two lagoons that frame the Island of Oahu and the currents that flow through them, driven by steady trade winds. These trade winds contribute to surf that is world-renowned, encouraging watersport enthusiasts, surfers, wind boarders, and kite-flyers to visit the beaches of Kailua.

Located on the eastern side of the island of Oahu, Kailua's beaches and coves are so enchanting that if you never venture beyond the sand and waves during your stay, you'll be perfectly happy with your trip to Hawaii.

When to Visit Kailua, Hawaii

Kailua boasts a warm, tropical climate year-round. There's literally no wrong time to visit this island paradise. Peak season in Kailua comes twice a year, the first during the winter months of December through March. Crowds peak again in the summer months of June through August. Travel here in the off-season months if you'd like to find lower rates and more hotel options.

Weather patterns in Kailua remain steady, though the tropical climate means there's always a chance of rain. In the winter months, temperatures average in the mid-70s. Temperatures peak in the mid-80s during the summer. There are plenty of things to do year-round. Even the Kailua Farmers Market runs throughout the year, so you can pick up a local coconut or pineapple on your way back to the hotel.

You can hit the surf at any time, but you may wish to pack a wetsuit if you'll be in the water during the winter months for an extended period. The cooler months are perfect for exploring the landscape, such as taking a strenuous hike to the peaks of Olomana. At the summit, you'll be treated to invigorating trade winds and incredible views. Come spring and summer, head over to Kāneʻohe Bay, the largest bay in the Hawaiian Islands, for a snorkel tour or dive in the area's coral reefs.

It's always fun to visit Kailua, but if you plan your trip around the area's activities and festivals, you'll be in for an even greater treat. In April, the "I Love Kailua Town Party" brings family fun to the streets with food vendors, crafts, kids' rides, and live music. Enjoy live outdoor performances by the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra in May and June, and on Independence Day, Kailua celebrates with a parade, honoring veterans with marching band performances and more.
