Heading to the community of Waimanalo on the windward side of Oahu? You’ve picked an impeccable place to visit. Whether staying for a few short days or significantly longer you’ll enjoy exploring one of the most breathtaking stretches of coastline that our island has to offer. With a lot of sand and wide open expanses it never feels crowded here. There is also rural (yet charming) collective of places to eat to keep you occupied (and satisfied) when your days at the beach are done. But before you can immerse yourself in any of it, you need transportation from Honolulu International Airport. What’s the best way to make the 25-mile trek from HNL to Waimanalo? There’s only one reasonable option. Let’s review.
Best Way to Get from Honolulu International Airport to Waimanalo and What Else You Need to Know
Take a Private, Direct, Flat Rate Shuttle
There are no shared shuttle services to this countryside community. Traditional taxis are far from economical, and finding an Uber/Lyft that is willing to drive to the area can be a challenge. The latter can also be very expensive during peak hours, which not-so-coincidentally is the only time Waimanalo ride-hailing services seem to be available, if at all. What option are you left with? Thankfully, the best. Honolulu Airport Transfer is proud to offer dedicated Honolulu Airport to Waimanalo shuttle service. This is a direct and private (you and your party) transportation solution with a flat rate to ensure that there are no unpleasant surprises. In addition, you’ll enjoy our spacious, sleek, clean, and air-conditioned minivans while being escorted to paradise by your professional driver. We even offer passengers a lei greeting should you and/or members of your party desire. There is simply no better option to take you from HNL to Waimanalo.
Vacation Rental Not Ready for You Yet?
With no hotels in Waimanalo, you’re most likely staying at a vacation rental. Perhaps Waimanalo Beach Cottages, perhaps an Airbnb/VRBO, or maybe a privately secured option. Whatever the case may be, these rentals tend to be more strict about check-in time, and there is no lobby for you to bide your time in. Should you delay your airport pickup accordingly? Don’t fret early arrivers, as there is a great place to wait while you enjoy great food and drinks amidst a vibrant beach community atmosphere – Kalapawai Market. Kalapawai Market is a gathering place in Waimanalo, and it’s easy to spend a couple of hours hanging out with locals and fellow visitors while waiting for access to your accommodations. We can drop you off there, as it’s sure to be a very short stroll to your rental.
Going to Bellows?
Are you going to Bellows Air Force Station? While technically located in Waimanalo, it may as well be a whole other world. If you’ve ever overlooked the signage and accidentally walked from Waimanalo Beach Park to Bellows Field Beach Park on a weekday you’ll know what we mean. Don’t try it. Simply put, any time you visit a military installation you need to be more thoughtful about your transportation to (and from) the base. We are both locals’ and visitors’ (military personnel included) preferred airport shuttle to Bellows Air Force Station in Waimanalo. Here’s why.
Remember to give us 24-hours notice and we’ll pick you and your party up from the airport and take you directly to Waimanalo accommodations, no matter the time of day. Call us at 1.800.929.1219 or complete the form found here.
