The North Shore is where you can see big waves. Surfer competitions attract thousands of viewers, so if you are looking for peace and quiet, avoid those, or drive by them to find a quiet beach to relax.
Thanks to Ohana Nature Tours under the expertise of Linten, I had the amazing experience of driving with 8 other tourists from Wakiki Beach to the North Shore, and return. Although the tour was 7 hours long, it passed very quickly, thanks to Linten's comprehensive...More
Visited during the Winter so the surf was awesome. There during some competitions though we never made it to watch them. Family members took two surf lessons while there and loved the water; however, they said when you fall off, you’re falling into lava rock...More
We did not have long here but came to see the beach and watch some surfing. It is a good spot as there is parking very close by. The beach is clean and very picturesque. The views are lovely and we saw some big waves...More

We didnt have a problem with bugs where we stayed because the property has a full time manager who schedules routine maintenance. If you stay on a property that is not sprayed for bugs, you may have to deal with small roaches. We enjoyed gekkos both inside and outside our lodging: some people don’t like them, but they are harmless and help keep bugs under control.
We shopped at grocery stores, and yes, they are noticeably more expensive than the mainland. We found that Long’s drug stores carried almost everything we needed, and their prices were much better! We bought eggs from a lady with chickens and bought produce at the farmers market. You dont have to spend a fortune to eat very well!
Hint: eat at Jerry’s Pizza!
