Destination guide

Soak up the sun and hospitality on friendly Oahu

Perched on the southern shore of Oahu along M_mala Bay is the oceanfront paradise of Ewa Beach. With sandy beaches stretching nearly the entire coastline, Eva Beach is the perfect spot to play in the surf, hang ten, or just kick back and work on your tan. At an Ewa Beach vacation rental, all the attractions of bustling Honolulu are just a short drive away. It's also a great base for exploring the natural wonders of this otherworldly volcanic island, from mountain peaks, to lush forests, to pristine beaches. Just bring a healthy dose of SPF.

Things to do

Something for everyone, from WWII to Waikiki

If you can tear yourself away from the beach, all of Honolulu's top sights are just a short drive away. First, stop and pay your respects at the historic sites of Pearl Harbor, including the USS Arizona Memorial and the Punchbowl National Cemetery. Continue on to downtown, where you'll find the landmark Aloha Tower lighthouse and Iolani Palace, the elegant 19th-century residence of Hawaiian kings and queens. Waikiki is home to the world-famous beach of the same name, as well as the Honolulu Zoo. End with a hike up Diamond Head for unrivaled views.

Activities

Plenty of sunshine, from the surf to the back nine

When you think Hawaii, you probably picture perfect beaches. With a waterfront Ewa Beach vacation rental, that image could be your backyard. Learn to surf with the locals or just soak up some rays at the picture-perfect shores. Golfers are in luck, as you can't drive a few miles from Ewa Beach without passing a course. For hiking, head to the dormant volcano at Diamond Head, or any of the island's forest reserves. Take in an authentic luau (feast) for a taste of local culture. There's also plenty of horseback riding, and the zipline at Kualoa Ranch will give you your adrenaline fix.

Weather

Endless summers at Ewa Beach

Whenever you come, the weather is likely to be perfect at your Ewa Beach vacation rental. Little variation in the climate throughout the year means there's never a bad time to visit. High temperatures are typically in the 80s all year round. You'll see the most rain from October to March, but few drops the rest of the year. The Hawaiian sun can be strong, so be sure to pack some serious sunscreen and a good hat if you plan to spend your time outdoors (and why wouldn't you with weather like this?).

Natural features

Plants and animals like you've never seen before

When it comes to nature, Oahu might make you feel like you've landed on another planet. At Ewa Beach you'll find the pristine sands and crashing waves that most people picture (don't miss the sunrises and sunsets), but venture further afield and the landscape quickly changes. There's an impressive number of forest reserves on one small island, and two separate volcanic mountain ranges. Oahu Forest National Wildlife Refuge is the last remaining intact native forest on the island, and it's home to at least 22 species of protected and endangered animals, including birds and tree snails.
