The main town in Oahu’s leeward coast, Waianae includes Makaha, Nanakuli and Maili. Known mostly for its largest Native Hawaiian population, Waianae is a dryer and warmer part of the island when compared to the windward side. Often considered to be one of the island’s best kept secrets, Waianae boasts some of the best beaches that Hawaii has to offer.

About Waianae

Often referred to as the Waianae Coast, the Waianae area is largely undeveloped. This does not mean that modern conveniences are sacrificed, however, as the area is home to a mall with a drugstore, a bank, food and clothing stores, and fast food eateries. The region also has a post office, a public library and a high school. With its pristine beaches and ample wildlife, Waianae offers abundant opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. At the Waianae Small Boat Harbor, a number of tour operators offer opportunities to take people out to snorkel with the wild dolphins or to cruise along the coastline. Fishing boats and small yachts can also be seen frequenting the harbor. Meanwhile, swimming opportunities can be found in the area’s many beaches, with Poka’i Bay being the most popular choice for swimming.
