1. Harbor, point, Keawanui, Molokaʻi. Kalaeloa is the point between Keawanui and Mikiawa fishponds. The harbor was named after the point. Although it is the largest and best-protected harbor on this coast, it is used only by shallow-draft boats because of its shallow entrance channel. 2. Regional park (120 acres), Kalaeloa, Oʻahu. On July 2, 1999, Barbers Point Naval Air Station was turned over to the state, although the navy retained a number of housing units with a commissary and exchange. Part of the conveyed property included this beach park between White Plains Beach and the runways. 3. Community development district. Name given to the former Barbers Point Naval Air Station when it was turned over to the state on July 2, 1999. On July 13, 2000, the U.S. Board on Geographic Names approved the BPNAS Redevelopment Commission's application to apply the name Kalaeloa to the surplus land that was conveyed to various state and county agencies for public purposes. The name change to Kalaeloa was consistent with a State of Hawaiʻi 1995 legislative resolution requesting that Kalaeloa, the traditional Hawaiian name for the area, be used instead of Barbers Point. 4. Point, Kalaeloa, Oʻahu. Southwesternmost point on Oʻahu. Also known as Barbers Point. Lit., long point. Probably named for the view of the point from the east (Diamond Head) end of Mamala Bay, from which it appears to be an extremely long point.
