  • Beach Lane View

    "My friends and I had stayed here for 2 nights and overall this place was awesome for the accomadations it had provided for the time we had stayed there. The parking is very limited though, so I recommend carpooling if you do plan on having more guest over. Other than that, everything was great. And if you need anything from the store there is a Longs Drugs walking distance from the place."

  • Best Beach Thanksgiving Ever!

    "My family and I spent Thanksgiving in Paradise this year, enjoyed the beach, surfing, biking, snorkeling at Shark's bay, watching the Surf worldcup at Sunset Beach and walking to the food trucks and Foodland for easy shopping and red box video rentals. The new huge TV and video player in the living room made for fantastic movie nights. Loved the deck and nice breeze at the house. Thanksgiving at the North Shore was a big success! The spacious kitchen is well equipped and we had no problem feeding almost 20 people here. I highly recommend this vacation home. The beach is right there and so scenic! They have bikes available to use for free and there are lots of places to bike to on the bike path along the shore. Thank you Robert and Yang. Keep up the good work."

  • A Piece Of Paradise

    "What a beautiful place to stay at !!! The beach is approx 15 steps from the Lanai and is right in the center of everything. Janet was very helpful from day 1 of booking. We conversed thru email and a phone call. Haleiwa Town is approx 2 to 3 min away and has everything to offer. The unit is everything you can ask for. We brought in our food and everything was in place to use !! Boogie Boards, Beach Chairs and snorkeling gear was available to use ! If you want to get away from the busy Waikiki life style, This is it !!! The North Shore will always be our home away from home. We look forward to coming again and we look forward to staying at your unit once again. Thanks for everything and it was a pleasure meeting you and your husband.

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.
