The present Kailua Light, a pyramidal concrete tower
, was built under the Bureau of Lighthouses in 1915 and replaced a fixed lens-lantern light
that was established in 1909.
The light sits on Kuka'ilimoku Point and marks the northwestern side of Kailua Bay, which is home to a sport fishing fleet.
Head Keepers: Daniel P. Haleamau (1909 – 1913), James K. Haleamau (1913 –1923).
