Windward Retreat Center-Oahu, Hawaii
The Windward Retreat Center is on the island of Oahu, located in the small town of Ka’a’awa, Hawaii. The center is only a short walk from the beach and steps away from beautiful mountain hikes that overlook Oahu's most beautiful coastline.
We're worlds away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki and yet only 26 miles from the Honolulu International Airport. Locals come to the Windward Retreat Center for a quiet escape, and visitors enjoy diverging from the well-beaten path of tourists. The surrounding area of Windward Oahu boasts deep valleys, dense rain forests, verdant cliff faces, gentle trade winds and beautiful white sand beaches, all full of rich history and cultural significance. We invite you to connect with the ‘aina (land) and learn the mo’olelo (stories) of the people, places and traditions of this special place in East Oahu.
