Downtown Kailua has an intimate “beach town feel” where just about everything is within walking distance, including shops, department stores, offices and housing. The town’s sense of community is important to “Kailuans.”
The town includes an interesting mix of national retailers such as Macy’s, Starbucks and Cold Stone Creamery, as well as successful local boutiques such as Global Village and Kailua Beachwalk. There are many exceptional bistros, delis and breakfast diners catering to local residents and visitors.
The town’s most recent and quietly elegant addition, Kailua Town Center III, anchored by Whole Foods Market, is a uniquely designed commercial and community space with graceful plantation-style architecture, gardens with Native Hawaiian plants, peaceful walkways and niches and striking ceramic mosaic artwork. The center also is becoming a hub for the renaissance of Hawaiian music and culture with monthly “Kanikapila in Kailua” concerts featuring some of the Windward side’s great musical talents.
Come experience the charming character of Kailua town, a vibrant community with a downtown sure to bring out the casual stroller, window shopper and art enthusiast in all of us.
