West Shore of Oahu, Hawaii, is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world. Because of the extraordinary vacation rentals like condos, apartments, villas, cabins, cottages and homes, Oahu and the West Shore remain protected and beautiful. West Shore has three beaches that will grab your attention: Ko Olina Resort and Marina, Nanakuli Beach Park, and Makaha Beach. Lodging oceanfront opens up your vacation to all the enjoyment to be had. Not only is the environment protected, but it is a feast for the senses. Facilities, such as picnic areas, softball fields, volleyball courts, restrooms, and more, are located near the beaches, very close to the most of the vacation rentals. The waves can be mean in Makaha Beach but usually are safe. West Shore varies in beaches, but they all make waves in paradise. Time not spent at the beach or on the golf course is no less fun. The lodging amenities of the vacation rentals (homes, condos, villas, apartments, cabins, cottages) will impress. And from your vacation property you'll want to venture out to see what's going on in West Shore and all of Oahu.
Break out the calendar. An event is happening somewhere. Whether it is a luau, music festival, a local arts and crafts fair, or it is an environmental lecture, culinary and wine tasting event, or surfing competition, the event is sure to be fun to watch or join. Restaurants run the gamut: Hawaiian, Vietnamese, and Thai, pizza, margaritas, and cheeseburgers are among the very basic ethnicities and styles. Honolulu and Waikiki are where the big names in shopping are, but hundreds of shops dot the island. To complete a vacation in Hawaii, a massage melts away the pain from surfing and the knots from shopping. From your vacation rental, the magnetism to the white sand, clear blue sea, and endless horizon, is as natural as the warm breeze off the West Shore. So many possible sports to learn and do: surf, wind surf, kite surf, water ski, jet ski, parasail, joy ride, fish on- and off-shore, whale-watch, snorkel, scuba dive, kayak, canoe, eco-tour, hike, bike, horseback ride, golf, tennis, and, of course, tan in the blinding sun. Whether you want to push the limits or withdraw into deep serenity, West Shore, like all of Oahu and Hawaii, is the perfect spot. Lush gardens, dense tropical forests, volcanoes sky high, seemingly drinkable water, powder white sand, red sunsets-West Shore is essential Oahu, and Oahu is essential Hawaii. All of which, for affordable, luxurious lodging, make for a vacation dream made reality. Come make that dream your reality!
