Visitor Reviews of Kailua Beach
“Pretty meh surf spot... but it can be fun for beginners. One thing to mention is the occasional influx of poisonous seaweed that causes nasty itching and rashes when it slips through your board shorts. Normally only after big storms, but be cautious nevertheless, I definitely wouldn't want to experience that again.”
