Recent North Shore Oahu reviews

  • Already missing it!

    "Suzanne and Bob, thank you for renting out such a neat condo in the most perfect of locations. For those considering: Haleiwa is such a laid-back town, filled with character and flavor (eating at the various food trucks - fresh, local, quality cuisine - was a delicious treat. Great restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner, too). The condo itself is nestled beachfront amidst the miles(and miles)-long north shore. Being from Western MA we are used to searching for beaches worth visiting that are open to the public; on the north shore of HI you are hard pressed to go somewhere without a beautiful beach! The beach in front of the condo is private and peaceful. The surf in the region comes in strong but this beach has a rock reef that protects it so even the most timid of waders will be able to enjoy the glossy, clear, warm water. If one cares to use the snorkel gear provided, this protected area behind the condo is a great spot to check out the sea-life... I swam a few feet from a sea turtle right outside the back door!! We greatly enjoyed our time on the beach outside the condo - coffee in the morning, swimming in the mid-day, watching sunset in the evening and listening to/watching the surf by moonlight. Our only gripe is that we now have about 200 pictures of the same beach, none of which will be parted with easily. Everything we needed was thoughtfully provided (kitchen wares, boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach towels, bed linens, even soap!) and the general vibe of the condo complex was clean, relaxed and peaceful. All the inhabitants were quiet, respectful, and welcoming without being nosy. Suzanne checked in on us after arrival and offered her services if needed, but we wanted for nothing! Also of note, despite being 6,000 miles from home and having never travelled so far before, I felt very safe at this condo. We found this condo to be the most perfect of locations to enjoy the sound and feel of the surf and the Hawaiian experience. We are already saving to come back some time in the hopefully-not-too-distant future!"

  • Wonderful Home

    "Thanks for the wonderful home and a break from the cold of Alaska. Gorgeous home. Lots of room. Liked the breeze in the master bedroom. Great place to snorkel, the little private entrance. Lots of fish and stuff. We look forward to coming back."

  • Vacation at Turtle Bay

    "Our stay at the condo was great! It was so much nicer than a hotel. We loved having two bathrooms and the full kitchen. Also nice to have two tvs to watch. The view from our private patio was beautiful. We really liked the pool (not crowded and very clean). We plan on returning for another vacation and renting here again."

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.
