Things to do on holiday in Sunset Beach, Hawaii

As you might expect, the main attraction when staying in a Sunset Beach holiday rental home is the beach itself! The wide sandy beaches are lined with palm trees and are perfect for soaking up the warm Hawaiian sun until the waters of the Pacific Ocean invite you in to cool off. Obviously swimming is a favourite pastime, and though you can enjoy the surf throughout the year it is winter time that Sunset Beach really comes into its own as a great surfing destination. Experienced surfers can ride wintertime waves which can reach as high as 25 to 50 feet! Then there are the highly sought after surfing competitions held in the area too.

The gentle and warm tradewinds which breeze across Sunset Beach means beach lovers should never get overly hot here, and are perfect for trying windsurfing. From your Sunset Beach resort rental you can also look out for whales and dolphins, playing a little way off shore. You may even come across some giant sea turtles further along the beach.
