No trip to the island of Oahu is complete without exploring its many spectacular beaches. Before you and your friends or family pile into your rental car or van rental from Little Hawaii Rent A Car, take a look at our list of beach trip essentials that you’ll want to pack for your road trip to the shore.

A Plan and an Open Mind

Having a loosely set plan is often the best way to make the most of your time while vacationing. However, it’s just as important to be open to surprises so that you can be spontaneous and enjoy impromptu stops, detours, and delays along the way.

Navigation Tools

Online tools like apps and GPS are extremely handy to plot out your road trip in your rental car. But don’t forget to also pick up road maps in case you’re offline while you’re on the road. Before you hit the trail, talk to some locals, and find out what their favorite spots are; they might surprise you with a few local hidden gems that aren’t in the tourist brochures!
