Recent North Shore Oahu reviews

  • Honu hale 1, my home away from home.

    "What a great stay we had at Honu Hale I. Such a quaint home that is cozy and wonderful. The lanai made every morning worth getting up for. Haleiwa is where we spent most of our time. We attended a wedding at Turtle Bay, spent a day at the Polynesian Cultural Center and enjoyed the weather. We can’t wait for our next trip to the island. Honu Hale I, I hope you are ready when we are!"

  • Oceanfront, whales, turtles ALL GOOD!

    "We had a delightful 5 week Jan-Feb stay in the condo. Morning coffee on the lanai, watching the whales spout on the horizon and turtles surfacing directly offshore was wonderful. Very clean and comfy with fast internet and good tv channels. Nicely equipped for preparing and serving meals. Good supply of towels, beach chairs, snorkel equipment and toys. Could use a drying rack for towels and swim suits. The microwave stopped working and very quickly Kim had a replacement. Condo complex is safe and well taken care of. Haleiwa towne is about a mile walk. Being without a car was a little tricky. We took the bus from Honolulu and got off in downtown Haleiwa without knowing where to pick up the bus to the condo. So we walked the mile dragging our suitcases down the bumpy and uneven sidewalk, not fun on a hot day. Sleeping in the bedroom was fine at night as most residents followed the 10PM-8AM quiet rule. The curtains didn't totally block out the hallway lights, but they are good for safety reasons. It was difficult to sleep in the morning as the rooster asylum across the street started up before 1st light. The bedroom faces the parking lot so you could hear coughing, talking, walking, traffic and the ocassional car alarm. We had a great time and plan to return. Mahalo!"

  • the Crawfords at Rocky Point

    "It was like coming home. We stayed in many other places at Rocky Point, but this one was the best. Awesome hosts. Great place, steps away from the beach and the surf. We hate to leave, but we will be back many times."

  • Country time

    "Great location to see the country and get out of town. Kuilima great for early morning snorkel. Sunday polo game a fun excursion, tailgating between the mountains and ocean. Foodland down the road for cooking meals in wonderful kitchen. Lots of room in condo for 5 adults and laundry a sweet plus. Very well stocked home, quiet location and a pleasure to stay there. 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.
