The resort of Makaha is located on the west coast of the Hawaiian island of Oahu. This comes under the United States of America. If you are keen to travel somewhere very different for your next vacation, but still have plenty of places to visit and things to do, holidays in Makaha are definitely right for you. Your self catering accommodation in Makaha will be surrounded by lush and verdant countryside and many properties will have breathtaking views out to the Pacific Ocean. All properties are very well-equipped and comfortable, ensuring that you are able to spend an idyllic time in the Hawaiian Islands.
The island of Oahu will have plenty of activities for you to indulge in during your holidays in Makaha. Many of which will probably focus on the glorious beaches that can be found in this area. Water-based activities such as family-safe swimming, sailing, fishing, snorkelling, diving, jet skiing, water skiing and kayaking are all available for you. Of course, we all know how fantastic the Hawaiian Islands are for people who enjoy the sport of surfing, and this is no exception in and around Makaha. The fact that Hawaii is positioned far out in the Pacific Ocean is the reason why there are such great breakers to ride.
For a very relaxing afternoon trip there are a choice of no less than four national parks in the north-west of Oahu for you to visit. A couple of which are the Makua Kea’au Forest Reserve and the Kaena Point State Park. This will present you with the prefect chance to catch sight of the regional species of flora and fauna - and trust me, wildlife rarely gets more interesting than in beautiful Hawaii! For when you get cravings for more in the way of city-life action, there is an ideal place for you to visit on your holidays in Makaha, Honolulu. This is a relatively short drive to the south-west of your self catering villa. Waikiki Beach is likely to be one of your port o’ calls in this city, but don’t forget about Pearl Harbour and the fact that there are some great shopping opportunities here.
Your holidays in Makaha will be spent in what is known as a tropical monsoon climate. This means that the temperatures are always very reasonable, but rain is never too far away. In fact, the average daytime temperature does not fall below 22 degrees Celsius all year; reaching a peak of 27 degrees in July and August. The island of Oahu is green for a very good reason: there is plenty of rain all year, with an average of over 40 inches.
The easiest way of travelling to your self catering accommodation in Makaha is to book your main flight from the UK to either San Francisco (SFO) or Los Angeles (LAX). You would then need to travel on to Honolulu International Airport (HNL). Both flights can be booked through Delta Airlines or United Airlines from London Heathrow (LHR).
