Recent North Shore Oahu reviews

  • Great location!

    "We loved every minute of our most recent surf trip to the North Shore. This unit is smack dab in the middle of the all the action. We took a short pedal (bikes provided) to Sunset Beach to watch the HIC pro event. The Foodland is within walking distance if you are in need of an Ono Pop (best whole-fruit popsicle around). On flatter surf days, we walked to Sharks Cove for top-notch snorkeling (gear provided, if you need it), plus, we hit the Waimea Farmers' Market every Wednesday (we took our car to load up on fresh veggies and Link's bacon and sausages, but you could easily ride a bike). Not a surfer? Winter wave watching on the North Shore is awesome. The unit is well kept, clean and simple. The kitchen has all the basic supplies plus a few extras like a rice maker and a blender. The living room is comfortable with enough space for two yoga mats to stretch after surfing. The unit is bright and breezy. The owners are friendly and happy to help."

  • Very nice, secluded private, close to everything on the north shore!

    "Our first visit to Hawaii, the island of Oahu, was a very pleasant and enjoyable vacation. I was unsure of where to stay and took a chance at renting through VRBO. We definitely made the right choice in staying at the Plumeria house. Very secluded and private with 2 security gates. Very relaxing and very close to great snorkeling and scenic Wiamea bay. The house has some age but is very well kept and has everything you will need during your vacation. 10 minute walk to Foodland grocery store, and they even had a $50.00 gift card to get you started! We highly recommend Tropical Waters for your Hawiian vacation."

  • This is Paradise!

    "We recently returned from our annual paradise-seeking retreat to Laie and the North Shore. Sue and Dale offer their Aloha spirit and make you feel like you’re Ohana. We always feel welcome and enjoy being a part of their community. They are the best. Sue and Dale’s vacation rental is a perfect getaway with a million dollar (second story) view – indeed a breath-taking panoramic paradise overlooking Hukilau Bay, Goat Island and the north side of Laie Point (spotted whales on occasion). The area also offers endless possibilities for exploration and discovery. The two bedroom unit is spacious, has a large functional kitchen, panoramic entry and a comfortable sitting area. It’s a great value, very clean and is well maintained. The beach is just steps away; the calming sound of the ocean is guaranteed to offer a restful night. A morning walk on the beach to watch the sunrise is an unforgettable way to start your day in paradise. Laie’s location is convenient to several famous North Shore attractions; Polynesian Cultural Center, Laie LDS Temple. 10min to Turtle Bay Resort and golf courses - 20min to Sunset, Pipeline, Waimea Bay, 30min to Hale’iwa, 45min to Windward beaches and attractions and 1hr to HNL airport. Our favorite places to eat in the area include Kahuku Grill (Kahuku), Seven Brothers Backyard Burgers (Laie), Papa Ole’s Kitchen (Hau’ula), Matsumoto’s Shave Ice and Grass Skirt Grill (Hale’iwa), Seven Brothers Food Truck, The Elephant Truck/Beach Thai Food and Ted’s Bakery (Sunset area). Ted’s Bakery malasadas are worth the drive; arrive early in the morning before they’re all gone. Nearby amenities at Laie Shopping Center include, Foodland, Subway, Taco Bell, Laie Palms Cinemas - a cool retro movie theater, bank/ATM, Post Office, Pizza Hut and ACE hardware store. Long’s Drug, North Shore Tacos, Dominoes Pizza in Hau’ula shopping center and Turtle Bay Resort are also nearby. Being repeat visitors to Laie, we’ve had the opportunity to meet many wonderful people and have renewed old acquaintances. There’s no question - we will return again and again. If you’re looking for a quiet, relaxing place to enjoy paradise – stay away from the mayhem of Waikiki, this is the place for you!"

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.
