If you're looking for true Hawaii this is it. Forget Waikiki and Honolulu with all the crowds and traffic. Come to the North Shore for the tropical scenary, farms, plantations, ranches and the unbelievable winter waves and surfing. Please note that during the winter the...More

If you want a more Authentic Hawaiian experience, the North Shore is where it's at. You can be away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki and truly relax on the North Shore. In the Summer the water is smooth as glass and crystal clear!...More

The North Shore was amazingly beautiful and home of the biggest waves in Oahu! Catch it at the right time and you will see Surfers hitting 20 ft plus waves!

I vastly preferred the (relatively) uncrowded northern shore of Oahu. There are tours, of course, and there is a public bus that goes around the island, but I prefer the freedom and range that having a car gave me. I even found some beaches where...More
