  • Wonderful Stay in Turtle Bay

    "Couldn't ask for much more. Great accommodations. The condo had everything we needed beach towels, boogie boards, beach chairs, golf clubs, beach mats, snorkel gear. The hammock was used every day. The sunsets from the Lanai were absolutely wonderful. The pool being located right outside the door was very convenient for the kids and for us. The kitchen is super modern and has all the stuff you will need. Walking distance to Turtle Bay resort to enjoy the Hula Show and Surfers and Sunset!! Lei Lei's restaurant is the best right in walking distance. Lots to do in the area, kayaking, surfing, golfing, zip lining & hiking. Bike Rentals also!! Fun Fun for the whole family!!"

  • Great place to celebrate!

    "My husband and I spent our 25th anniversary here and it was the perfect spot! The pictures posted are exactly what you will see when you look out the door of the studio rental. It was sooo beautiful and peaceful! We loved falling asleep to the sound of the ocean every night and taking walks along the beach morning and night. As others have said, it is really close to a grocery store and the PCC is less than 5 minutes down the street. We also visited Kualoa Ranch, Pearl Harbor, ate at many local stops (Ted's Bakery, Leonards,several shrimp trucks and Cinnamons for breakfast), and went snorkeling at several different beaches along the way. I would suggest going to Snorkel Bob's in Waikiki. It is good equipment and a good deal for the week. Our favorite snorkeling was actually right out the front door of the studio on Temple Beach! The fish there were incredible and it was not crowded at all.Our own private piece of heaven! We would definitely come back here. We loved cats so we really enjoyed our furry companions every morning and night! What a great way to celebrate 25 years of marriage!"

  • Excellent North shore cottage on the beach

    "This was a great stay ON the beach in the North Shore. Waves were great, caretaker (Chuck) helped us with local knowledge and made our stay wonderful!!! He was very friendly and made us feel like best buds right from the beginning. Chickens on the property were fun and kept the bugs down. Love the place and location. The cottage is quant and has all needed amenities. Private parking was also a plus. It made us feel like being home and this was our 4th time here. The remodel work was excellent while still keeping the cottage motif. Would reccommend to all....much better than a hotel in Honolulu....really gives you the Aloha feel."

  • Paradise on the Pacific

    "This place is a piece of paradise. A lot of love and thought went into the house inside and out. It was immaculate and beautifully decorated. It had everything one would need; spices in the pantry, cooler for a picnic lunch, kayak, snorkel gear, beach chairs and more. There were so many amenities that we didn't get a chance to take full advantage of it all. We celebrated our 30th anniversary here and it was a perfect place to celebrate. We loved opening the doors up and seeing the waves from any spot in the house. Walking up and down the many miles of beach at sunrise was beautiful. The time went too fast and what great memories we have of your place! It was a romantic place and would recommend it to friends. Thanks for sharing your home! Mahalo!"

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.
