Recent North Shore Oahu reviews

  • Absolutely incredible place

    "Loved our stay here! The condo was very clean and beautiful and the lanai was very peaceful and cool. Perfect location on the North shore, would definitely come back to stay here again!"

  • Didn't want to leave!

    "My wife, brother, and mother stayed in this bungalow for a week. Needless to say, I wish I was still there. This place is not on the beach, it's waterfront. Your backyard is the ocean. There is a wall separating the backyard from the ocean! Waves crash up against it and spray into the backyard. Pictures do not do this place justice. It is incredible! The North Shore of Oahu is a relaxing place. But staying at a resort is for tourists. If you want to do it right, this property is what you are looking for. We were away from the crowds, in the most peaceful of areas. The bungalow is exceptionally clean. There is a full kitchen, two bathrooms, and almost every room is equipped with ocean views. And if that's not enough, there are boogey boards, snorkel gear, water shoes, sunblock, beach towels, etc. You name it, they already thought of it and you have it at your disposal. Darcelle is the owner of the property and she will make sure you have everything you need during your stay. She greeted us upon arrival and told us just about everything that we needed to know. She is very sweet and accommodating. Thanks Darcelle! Do yourself a favor: skip the resorts, book a stay at Darcelle's bungalow, stay for as long as you can and enjoy this beautiful home away from home. I want to live here permanently, but I don't think Darcelle will let me. :) Mahalo!"

  • Excellent! and Waves too!

    "The house was clean and cool thanks to the constant breeze. We were lucky to get some waves in front of the house! 1-3 foot shore breaks! Go to the far left, but not past the coral sticking up, to catch a small left breaking waves from a little further out. Very fun. We were out there like 4 times a day."

  • Awesome North Shore Vacation!

    "My friend and I had a great stay. The condo had everything we needed. It was clean and neat which we much appreciated. The owner was very accommodating to our needs since we weren't able to stay in our original condo for the whole time of our vacation. It truly helped us out. It's a great way to spend a vacation with the beach right out front plus having a pool. Gorgeous sunrises, wonderful breezes for making a very relaxing vacation. Have come back four times since!"

North Shore Oahu Travel Tips

Oahu's North Shore has been attracting visitors for years due to its beautiful beaches and panoramic views. The area that makes up the North Shore is between Ka'ena Point and Kahuku Point and is located 28 miles from Waikiki.

The weather in Oahu is warm so be sure to pack your summer clothes no matter what season you're visiting. Since it'll be cool in the evenings, you may want to consider bringing along a sweater or light jacket. The average temperature in Oahu is between 75 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit when the summer air is warmer and drier. Although it cools down between December and March, the trade winds keep the temperatures comfortable throughout the year.

North Shore Attractions

The area is best known for its massive waves and surfers from all over the world flock there to test them out. If you want to find the best surfing spots on the North Shore, be sure to visit Waimea Bay and Sunset Beach. However, the most notable surfing spot is Ehukai Beach, also known as Banzai Pipeline. Annual surfing competitions are held at the North Shore including the Reef Hawaiian Pro, the O'Neill World Cup of Surfing and the Billabong Pipeline Masters. These three competitions make up the Triple Crown of Surfing. Even if you've never been surfing, there are several surf schools on the North Shore that can help you get acquainted with a long board.

If you visit Oahu's North Shore during the summer months, you can expect to see calm waters that are perfect for snorkeling, diving and swimming. The water is crystal clear and the beaches are among the most beautiful in the world, so spending a lot of time here during your trip is a must.

You'll want to check out Waimea Valley where there's a world class botanical garden at Waimea Falls. You can also visit ancient Hawaiian cultural sites and learn more about the islands. Waimea Valley offers a North Shore Eco Tour and the Hawaiian Hiking Company will take you off the beaten path on a privately guided hike through the Hawaiian rainforest. If you want to get a bird's eye view of the North Shore, take skydiving and glider rides at Dillingham Airfield.

Keana Point State Recreation Area features rare native plants and the opportunity to spot sunbathing seals. Although there is no shade or fresh water, the point is still a sight to see as there are picturesque views and the chance to see humpback whales spouting and breaching from November through March. Bringing along a camera to Keana Point State Recreation Area is a must due to the incredible views and wildlife.

Things to Do in North Shore

Haleiwa: Shopping and dining are just some of the many things you can enjoy in the town of Haleiwa. Women's clothing stores include Silver Moon Emporium, Island X Hawaii, Patagonia and Growing Keiki. There are also a number of surf shops including North Shore Boardriders Club, Tropical Rush and Strong Current where you can pick up your gear as you get ready for surfing lessons. If you want to grab a bite to eat in Haleiwa, be sure to stop by Opal Thai. This food truck is one of the best in town and offers a unique dining experience. You'll find what some may argue is the best shrimp on Oahu at Macky's Kahuku Sweet Shrimp Truck. Don't fight off the urge to sink your teeth into a delicious cupcake. Waialua Bakery offers delectable desserts as well as healthy sandwiches.

Mokuleia Beach Park: While in the North Shore, don't forget to check out Mokuleia Beach Park, the filming location for the popular television show "Lost." The park is located on a remote part of the island's northwest point and is 10 miles from the nearest store. This isolated area looks like a deserted island, and is surrounded by turquoise water and powder white sand. Expect to encounter sea turtles and other marine life. You can spend a whole day without seeing another individual at this picture-perfect secret find.

Puu O'Mahuka Heiau: This viewpoint and religious site offers panoramic views from a bluff located high over Waimea Bay. Puu O'Mahuka Heiau is on the National Register of Historic Places and was once the site of human sacrifices. The land of Puu O'Mahuka Heiau covers 2 acres and historians believe it may have been constructed as early as the 1600s. Today, there is a path that leads you to Heiau and the stone walls that outline it.
