Welcome to Pearl Harbor & Leeward O‘ahu
To the west, suburbanite Kapolei boasts a few family-friendly attractions and Ko Olina seems set to continue growing as an enclave of huge high-end resorts. The intrepid traveler venturing further north in Leeward Oʻahu along the Waiʻanae Coast will find undeveloped beaches and unvarnished communities. Cultural pride is alive here, as more Native Hawaiians live on the Waiʻanae Coast than anyplace else island-wide. Near the island’s tip at Kaʻena Point, habitation gives way to green-velvet-tufted mountains and rocky coastal ledges.
