There are many aspects about Hawaii that appeal to tourists from all over the world. Some people love the idea of visiting one of the most secluded locations in the world, some people have heard about how good the food is and many have heard how beautiful the sunsets are on our islands. On O’ahu, the best spots to watch the sunsets are from the west coast “Leeward” side, Waikiki beach, top of Diamond Head or any high-floor room at a hotel with an unobstructed view.
For many tourists, the easiest and most accessible place to watch a sunset is Waikiki Beach. For a majority of hotels in Waikiki, the beach is about a 5-10 minute stroll away. Around the time the sun starts to set, you’ll see many people making there way over to the long stretch of beach spanning Waikiki. It offers an unobstructed view of the sun eventually dipping into the Pacific. We highly recommend that you take the time to visit Waikiki beach at the time of sunset. Here are a couple photographs taken by Chris Laporga of the Waikiki Beach sunset just moments before it dipped into the horizon:
The closest you can get to a sunset is being on the Leeward/Waianae Coast side. If you are a vacationer in Ko Olina, rest assured that you will have that “million dollar” view of the sunset each day. There are 4 public accesses to beautiful beach lagoons off of Ko Olina’s Ali’inui Drive. Each one offers stunning sunset views.
We hope you capture whatever it is you want to experience here on the islands. We would be glad to be your hosts for your unforgettable vacation experience.
