We really liked the North Shore. Stunning scenery and coastline and great shopping. Good food too and it’s a pleasant way to spend 1/2 - 1 day out and about!

North shore has always been special to me. The relaxed vibe takes you back decades ago to a more simple time without cell phones and Facebook. Just the beach and the wind and the sound of fun.

Landed in Honolulu and already had a hotel booked near Waikiki. It might as well be Miami Beach or Santa Monica beach. Hotels right up against the beach. Unless you only want a tourists’ holiday jump in a car and head for the north shore....More

Rented a car and drove up the coast from Waikiki. Absolutely gorgeous scenic views of the ocean, rocks and foliage. Plenty of places to park, swim and use facilities. Big waves and surf culture at the most northern point.
