Right on the beach! Next to international airport.

It is approximately 10 to 15 minutes drive from the international airport. 
Even though we are located right next to the runway, there is no direct way across it, so, the airport transfer will take you all the way around. 

That's a nice trip itself. On the way to Bamboo our driver will give you brief introduction about things around. You will go through Namaka area with some government and commercial buildings, street shops, cafe and supermarkets. There is also a local market, where you can buy fresh local fruits and vegetables. Then you enter the area called Martintar, where most of local inexpensive restaurants and night clubs located. Driving through Martintar, you will finally reach the beginning of the runway and make a sharp turn towards the beach. The beach side area called Wailoaloa. From the turn to Wailoaloa, the remaining part of your airport transfer will be about 6 km long and will go through the beautiful green surroundings along the beach and the other side of the runway before you reach your destination.
