Waianae is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki and Honolulu, on the quiet Western side of Oahu. Waianae is the perfect home base if your dream Hawaiian vacation consists of lounging on a white sand beach, snorkeling with dolphins, and enjoying all of the beautiful nature that Hawaii has to offer. 31 miles from Honolulu, 34 miles from Waikiki, and 40 miles from Kailua, Waianae is a relaxed, calm retreat. It’s recommended that visitors to Waianae rent a car, as this area is a minimum 45-minute drive from most other towns in Oahu.
