The nearest major airport to Kaneohe, Hawaii
is Honolulu International Airport
. This airport is 10 miles from the center of Kaneohe. Located on the east side (the windward side) of the island about twenty minutes from Honolulu, Kaneohe Bay is protected by the only true barrier reef in Hawaii.
This vast stretch of water contains five small islands, including the famous Coconut Island. In the middle of the bay are a few sandbanks just a couple of feet deep, where people often hang out and hold beach parties.
Central to our Owner Direct condo, chalet and vacation home rentals is the world famous beaches and several state parks.

The north shore surfing area of Haleiwa
is a short drive to the north, and Honolulu and Waikiki
are a short drive to the south.
The drive on the “Kam” [Kamehameha] Highway from your lodging offers some of the most breathtaking views in the world.
It is easy to see why Kaneohe Bay Beach Park is the stuff of Hollywood. This so-called “living postcard” has provided a scenic backdrop for dozens of popular movies and TV series, the most notable being Pearl Harbor, Gilligan’s Island and 50 First Dates.
Hawaiian chiefs reportedly chose this place to build their sacred fishponds, and its historical vibe can be felt up to this day. Nowadays, accommodations are common in the area. Vacation rentals such as a private home or condo rental will provide you with comfortable living while you explore the area.
The bay is also a breeding ground for hammerhead sharks.
Thousands of them are born here every year and spend their first few months in the shallow water. Marine scientists flock to the bay as well to study these oddly-shaped creatures. Surprisingly, these sharks aren’t dangerous. Snorkelers regularly swim among them during the breeding season. Eventually, the hammerhead sharks swim out to the deeper waters where they grow up to 13 feet in length.
