  1. Beach park (36.4 acres), surf site, Kīhei, Maui. The park was named for Samuel E. Kalama (1869-1933), chairman of the Maui Board of Supervisors from 1913 to 1933. The position of chairman of the board then was equivalent to the position of mayor today. Land for the park was acquired in 1939. The surf site is off the south end of the park and is also known as Kalama Point.
  2. Beach, Kailua, Oʻahu. Center section of Kailua Beach fronting Kalama Beach Club. In 1925, Harold Kainalu Long Castle opened the first housing tract in Kailua. He named it Kalama in honor of Queen Kalama, wife of Kamehameha III, who had previously owned the land division of Kailua. Castle set aside a large oceanfront parcel for the use of the tract residents as a private beach park. In 1928, a clubhouse and pavilion were built on the property, and it was named the Kalama Beach Club. The beach fronting the clubhouse has been known since as Kalama Beach.
  3. Beach park (4.3 acres), Kailua, Oʻahu. In 1978, the City and County of Honolulu purchased the Boettcher Estate on Kailua Beach for use as a community center and beach park. The acquisition included the Boettcher home, a historically significant building designed by architect Vladimir Ossipoff and constructed by Charles Boettcher II in 1936. The Boettcher Estate was part of the Kalama subdivision, so it was renamed Kalama Beach Park.
  • Literally, the torch.
