Welcome to Kayaking Kailua! This page has all the information you need to plan a great kayaking trip in Kailua Bay. Kailua has a lot of different options for travelers and locals alike. After launching your kayak into the protected waters, you can head straight out to Flat Island, or Moku’Popoia. This island is made entirely of fossilized coral and is home to a fascinating variety of birds and animals. After walking around the perimeter trail, you can get back in your kayak and head to Lanikai Beach. Lanikai Beach is an amazing place to swim, snorkel, or just lay on the beach! The coral heads just off shore are home to many Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles, and Lanikai is considered the best snorkel spot on the Windward Side.
For more adventurous paddlers, The Mokulua Islands or “Twin Islands” are a great destination. The Twin Islands are the jewels of Kailua Bay. After a fun hour of paddling, you arrive at a pristine white sand beach away from all of society. This is an amazing place for a picnic lunch, and the hike around the right side of the island is not to be missed. A short walk to the right side will reveal Queen’s Bath, a beautiful private tidal pool for you to swim in. The Ancient Hawaiians believed this pool to have rejuvenative properties. Jump in and see if it works!
