Honolulu Things to Do: 656 reviews and 1,313 photos
North shore is the north-facing coastal area of Oʻahu between Kaʻena Point and Kahuku Point. The largest settlement is Haleʻiwa. This area is best known for its massive waves, attracting surfers from all around the globe. Haleiwa is the hub of the North Shore, which overlooks picturesque Waialua Bay with its restaurants, shops and landmark Anahula Bridge. Further down the road, famous surf spots line the coast past Waimea Bay. Across the street, find historic Waimea Valley and the Saints Peter and Paul Mission around the bend.
During the summer, Oahu’s North Shore offers pristine diving and snorkeling conditions and a calm that befits its rural setting. But during the winter, the community is awakened by monster waves that roll in unabated 2,000 miles from Alaska. Top surfers and curious onlookers crowd Sunset, Banzai Pipeline and Waimea Bay.
