Kawailoa is a wide sandy beach on Oahu's North Shore, right next to Chun's Reef, a popular surf spot. There is no designated parking lot at Kawailoa Beach, so only street parking along Kamehameha Highway is available.
The name Kawailoa means “the long water” in the Hawaiian language. The beach was named after Kawailoa Stream, which is one of the longest streams on Oahu.
