In this blog post, I will show you the “Windward Coast” of Oahu and give you a quick peek of a few spots for you to judge to see if this is the right side for you to buy your home and embrace your new lifestyle.
The Windward side is known for its tropical forest and waterfalls thanks to all of the rain and trade winds which blow from the North The dramatic views from the mountains are part of the everyday commute.
Peaceful places like the Byodo-In temple welcomes people of all faiths to meditate or simply to appreciate the beauty of this lush valley.
Kaneohe has a cool, local, peaceful vibe even though it is one of the largest communities on this side of the island. Kaneohe is a popular destination for golfers, and they even have a public golf course called “Pali Golf Course” as well as a lot of beautiful botanical gardens.
Kailua town has peaceful blue beaches that offer you tons of fun activities like kayaking all the way to Mokolu Nui (a little island close to the beach) and biking along the coast. Farmers markets and good restaurants are part of the environment.
Waimanalo is a small community full of horse ranches, agricultural land, and sandy beaches with pristine blue waters. This area of the Windward side is a beautiful more rural area and is located just south of Kailua.
