Small-Town Charm, Beaches, Quiet Seclusion: Ewa Beach
Once just fields of lush plantation, the town of Ewa Beach is growing with commercial and residential development. Home to beautiful beaches, lush parks, community centers, and even Hawaiian Waters Adventure Park, Ewa offers a diverse array of attractions and entertainment. Shopping and dining can be found nearby at Kapolei Entertainment Center, and premiere golf courses populate the area. Additionally, it’s an easy trip up the H1 to Pearl Harbor Naval Station and Hickam Field.
Outdoor Recreation, Small-Town Amenities & Military Bases: Wahiawa
Centrally located in the middle of O’ahu just four miles north of Mililani, Wahiawa is a diverse community of rich cultural ancestry. Though it’s conveniently located off the H2, a commute might not be necessary, as it is home to both Schofield Barracks and Wheeler Army Airfield. Located between two mountain ranges, there are plenty of parks and natural areas to enjoy, as well as golf courses and recreation centers. Additionally, a growing downtown business and commercial area offer plenty of choices for shopping and dining.
Small, Residential Charm Minutes from Pearl City & Pearl Harbor: Waipahu
Located just north of Pearl Harbor, Waipahu is a mostly-residential community of quiet charm. Plenty of natural scenery and parks offer miles of shoreline along West Loch and Middle Loch, and there are plenty of nearby amenities to be enjoyed, such as Waipio Peninsula Soccer Complex and Waikele Outlets. And what’s even better, this charming small-town is just minutes from the big-city attractions and employment opportunities of Pearl City and Honolulu.

Yet there’s plenty of small-town charm and community to be found as well—community events and recreation centers, city parks, secluded beaches, miles of hiking and biking trails, premiere golf clubs, bustling shops and dining at Kapolei Commons and Kapolei Marketplace. There’s even a growing employment sector of developing industrial parks, retail areas, and business parks.
