The Leeward Coast (or Waianae) offers some of Oahu’s most breathtaking scenery. Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean on one side, and the Waianae Mountains on the other, the Waianae Coast offers the welcoming spirit and sense of ohana sought by those who venture west on Farrington Highway past Ko Olina in Kapolei. While Waianae may lack bling, it more than makes up for it in natural beauty as it is known to be home to some of the state’s most beautiful beaches like Mahaka and Maili Beaches, great surfing, fishing, and spectacular sunsets. Year-round activities include surfing, snorkeling and scuba diving. You can find residents of the Waianae Coast enjoying family picnics and gatherings on the beach on a weekly basis. Several surf competitions are held each year including the Rell Sunn Menehune Surfing Championship.
