How Important is Location in Paradise?
No doubt that the sunsets in Hawaii are incomparable. The sun sets in the West, so facing West is best, yet you can face it from a few directions. Every island has West facing areas, yet I think the best is from the South-East of all the islands due to the weather in these areas. Here’s why I’m presenting them as best, but if you want only sunsets, any West location will do. I’ve provided a list of reasons for my preferred areas on a few islands so you can consider your living options. Each island is differently shaped, and its topography is different. Set your own sequence of importance, it’s your life, enjoy it:
Offshore Tradewinds leave your appliances, technical electronics, as well as your home’s exterior in better condition as they are less affected by the salty on-shore predominant Tradewinds.
For growing plants, it’s more controllable in these areas as water is necessary yet not usually a daily occurrence on the South East or North East sides. You can water as needed, and some plants like mango and oranges, tangerines, and limes need less water. Wetter areas are where avocado, lychee, and banana do best with natural rain patterns.
