Waianae is on the less traveled western side of Oahu, between Makaha and Maili. There is much to see and do on the Waianae Coast, starting with the miles of sunny beaches. There is Makaha Beach Park, the site of international surfing competitions, and the gentle, secluded Maili Cove where you can walk the sandy beaches and enjoy the refreshing tradewinds. The beautiful Ko Olina Lagoons are great for snorkeling or hiking along the shore, and Pokai Bay Beach Park is considered to be the safest swimming beach along the Waianae Coast. Other points of interest in Waianae is the Kaneaki Heiau, a 17th century temple built for Lono, the god of harvest and family, and Kaneana Cave, a 450 foot long cavern, legendary home of Nanaue, a son of the shark god. In Waianae, you will find locally made arts and crafts, fresh fish markets and restaurants, the Waianae Mall, and the Makaha Golf Resort, which has a restaurant that offers fine dining with spectacular ocean views. The Waianae Coast is considered to be one of Oahu's best-kept secrets and yet is less than an hour's drive from Honolulu and Waikiki. The perfect place to experience all that is Hawaii, away from the crowds.

Waianae Weather & Climate

Oahu has a tropical climate, with only two seasons - winter and summer. By some people's standards, the climates should be spring and summer. Temperatures vary little, and winter is only slightly cooler and wetter than summer. Visitors encounter more variations in temperatures between elevations and location on the islands than from seasons. The east sides of the islands are wetter due to exposure from prevailing northeasterly tradewinds, which brings more rain to the eastern shores. The west sides, or "leeward," tend to be much drier. The sunny western side of Oahu is no exception, and it receives most of its rain October through March. Summer months receive very little to no precipitation. Hawaii's latitude is in the tropics, which means the length of day is relatively uniform throughout the year. In wintertime, winds from the southwest, called "Konas" sometimes bring heavier rainstorms, but severe storms, such as hurricanes, are rare.
