Oahu's Windward Coast

Set against the dramatic backdrop of sheer cliffs and verdant mountains dotted with small rural farms, Oahu's Windward Coast is the main part of the scenic drive that goes around the island. Light-sand beaches and turquoise waters sheltered by a reef remain the area's major tourist draws. Many visitors make Kailua their base. This laidback town offers access to a stunning beach and ancient temple ruins. For excellent hiking opportunities topped with panoramic views of the coast, visit Hauula. Whether you're a water sports fan or just enjoy lazing on the sand, an Oahu's Windward Coast vacation delivers opportunities for both. Add Oahu's Windward Coast and other destinations in United States to your travel plans using our United States holiday planner.
