Destination guide

Say Aloha to Hawaii Kai

A popular residential area on Oahu, the 3rd largest of the beautiful Hawaiian Islands, Hawaii Kai offers an idyllic base for a break with family and friends. Stunning beaches are part of the appeal here, and with many Hawaii Kai vacation rentals just steps from the ocean, you'll never be too far from your perfect spot on the sand. For those who prefer a little more action on their vacation, snorkeling amongst the colorful fish at Hanauma Bay State Park and swimming with dolphins at Sea Life Park are among the array of adventures on offer.

Things to do

Family fun in Hawaii Kai

If you're traveling with kids, there are serious brownie points to be had from a visit to Honolulu Zoo and Waikiki Aquarium, both within around 30 minutes' drive of most Hawaii Kai vacation rentals. If you'd prefer to stay close to your rental, Sea Life Park offers a range of interactive experiences, including once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to swim with petting sharks and dolphins. There's the usual sea lion and penguin shows too, as well as the popular Chief's Luau, a nightly event where the spectacular sight of fire knife dancing is the only thing that overshadows the appeal of a traditional feast.


Make a splash in Hawaii Kai

Gorgeous stretches of sand are plentiful but to spend your vacation simply topping up your tan would be something of a waste. The Hawaii Water Sports Center at Koko Marina serves up hair-raising banana boat and bumper tube rides, not to mention thrilling parasailing trips. Those who prefer their ocean adventures just a little tamer can head east to Maunalua Bay where a selection of cruise options present a relaxed way to enjoy the water. Turtle watching and scenic sunset cruises are available all year, while November through April is a great time for whale-watching excursions.


When to visit Hawaii Kai

Enjoying a break in Hawaii Kai is something of an all-season affair, although there's a lot to be said for visiting in September or October when, despite the chance of a little rain, temperatures are usually in the 80s and rates for Hawaii Kai vacation rentals are more tempting than ever. Travelers who hang fire until the winter months of December through March are rewarded with still warm weather, great whale-watching opportunities and the chance to watch some of the world's best surfers carve their way through waves that can reach upwards of 20 feet.

Natural features

Soak up the views in Hawaii Kai

With natural delights at every turn, Hawaii Kai is a favorite with fans of the great outdoors. See what all the fuss is about by tackling the 1000+ steps that lead to the top of the Koko Crater Trail - the views from the top make the effort worthwhile. Along the coast, there are several points of interest worthy of a spot on your must-see list, among them Spitting Cave where, as the name suggests, visitors are ‘spat' on by crashing waves. Further along, the Halona Blowhole Lookout is widely considered to be one of the east coast's most spectacular spots.
