Kawela Bay

Kawela Bay is a census-designated place and small community in the Koolauloa District on the northern coast of the island of Oahu, City & County of Honolulu, Hawaii, United States. In Hawaiian, ka wela means "the heat". As of the 2010 Census, the CDP had a population of 330.DescriptionKawela Bay is adjacent to the Turtle Bay Resort. Land for a Kawela Bay Beach park was allocated, but not improved. Coastal features and shorelines are mostly hidden from the traveler along Kamehameha Highway, although access to the shore can be found at Waialee Beach Park with Kukaimanini, an offshore islet. This area to the west is the North Shore of Oahu. For those travelling east, the road turns inland at Kawela to cross the Kahuku Plain where the James Campbell National Wildlife Refuge preserves some wetland habitat, coming again to the coast at Hukilau Beach in Lāie on the windward side of Oahu.The U.S. postal code for Kawela Bay, Turtle Bay and nearby Kuilima is 96731.Just inland from the bay is the Opana Radar Site, a National Historic Landmark that is not open to the public.
