We did the Koa “Deluxe Around the Island Tour” that started a Pearl Harbor. The tour was just okay (I’ll probably review that separately), but the North Shore is amazingly beautiful! Some of the most breathtaking sights ever! Get out of Honolulu and explore the...More

Aside from the spectacular scenery the big draw is the food trucks with fresh fish. We found that Giovanni's is the best but often the line wait is well over half an hour. Other food trucks are good but not as good as Giovanni's. Traffic...More

The North Shore is a must for anyone going to Oahu. The beaches are beautiful and if you go in the winter months you can see really good surfing. The best surfers in the world surf those 50+foot waves. Plenty of things to do in...More

The north shore is totally different than Waikiki beach. Very laid back, food trucks all over. You can spend all day at the beaches here.

Such an amazing view of the coastline and beautiful Pacific! This trip never gets old, there are many pull over stopping areas so that you can take photos or just enjoy the sun and wind. Highly recommend this trip!

North Shore was so different then Honalulu. Different culture almost. Small Hawaiian towns and great water. Rented a car to explore and so glad we did.

Summer tends to have smaller waves on the North Shore. You still do have to deal with a pretty good rip-tide so beware. Winter is when the waves are the best for the North Shore.
