Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Waimanalo, Hawaii your home away from home

Those looking for the ultimate oceanfront holiday experience need not look further than this small community located on the O’ahu island of Honolulu. It provides a glimpse as to why Hawaii remains one of the most celebrated vacation destinations of all time; crystal blue waters with just the right amount of spray, pure white powdery sands and a vast array of sea life. Visitors can watch the jaw-dropping beauty of the Hawaii sunrise from the comfort of beachfront houses or restored historic homes right on the beach. There are also a number of cottages available.

Things to do on holiday at Waimanalo, Hawaii

Being away from home doesn’t mean holidaymakers can’t practice their swing. At the nearby Hawaii Kai Golf Course visitors have access to the regulation 18 holes of a professional course only here they will be lulled by dreamy weather and breathtaking scenery as they play. Those keen for something a little more exhilarating might want to try surfing at Makapu’u Beach, what is arguably Hawaii’s best bodysurfing location. But visitors more intent on getting their share of R&R will also want to head to this beach as it is a great place to sunbathe, and watch the free entertainment provided by the surfers. Of course those wanting to taste the waters can swim to their heart’s delight though some areas may not be safe for beginners as they have strong currents.

Heading inland can also work a treat as you get to see lovely hills amid farms and ranches. When hunger pangs attack, visitors have a good number of decent restaurants serving shrimp and other kinds of seafood as well as good old barbecue.

Here they will meet the amiable Chief Sielu and his tribe of Polynesian drummers, dancers and entertainers. Those who didn’t know why Chief Sielu is considered one of the best South Pacific entertainers will know by the time they conclude their visit. Other treats visitors can look forward to while here include getting a spray tattoo, fire starting, and joining in native dances. Those looking for a slice of absolutely gorgeous beach complete with white sands need to head to Bellows Field Beach Park. And the beauty is that this spot is rarely ever crowded.
