Kalama Beach

Windward white sand beach with good swimming

The Beach

Sharing the same soft white sand as its neighboring beach Kailua Beach, Kalama beach is a superb option for those who want to go to a less crowded location, but nonetheless beautiful.

This location is widely known as one of Oahu’s best wind surfing spots, and is considered one of the top most beautiful beaches on earth. Kalama is a great location to choose as your home away from home, and provides many affordable and luxurious locations for short and long-term renting. We recommend checking out some of those locations on Airbnb, where you can explore many options for residing in this gorgeous location.

Whether you’re looking for a spot to sunbath or take part in many of the various activities that Kalama beach provides, you’re guaranteed to have an excellent time here with family and/or friends. As this beach is on the eastern side of Oahu, you’re likely to catch the calmer hours later in the afternoon before the sun crosses over to the westward side.

Getting Hungry? In the nearby surrounding vicinity you’ll find a few local-eats like Buzz’s Steakhouse (dine in/order to go) where you can grab a refreshing cocktail while snacking on some choice appetizers like their calamari steak or tempura french fries.

Have a furry animal friend joining you? Check out Kawai Nui Regional Park, an area with vast greenery that includes a dog park where you and your pet can catch some exercise while enjoying some fun in the sun.
