North Shore Beaches:
Kawela Bay/ Turtle Bay: Protected from large waves and surf, this beach, located on Oahu’s northeastern tip, past Haleiwa and near Kahuku, is one of the island’s best places to snorkel, occasionally offering visitors a chance to see a honu (Hawaiian green sea turtle).
Sunset Beach: Spanning in distance from Ehukai Beach (Banzai Pipeline) to Sunset Point and encompassing a dozen different reef breaks, this two-mile length of sand is considered the longest stretch of rideable surf spots in the world. This is also a venue for the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing (November - December).
Waimea Bay: This legendary beach is notorious for producing monstrous winter waves and is one of the first places surfers in the 50’s began to ride big waves. In the summer, the swells subside for great swimming and snorkeling. With full facilities, this is a popular beach for locals and visitors.
Ehukai Beach (Banzai Pipeline): The powerful waves at Banzai Pipeline break over a sharp reef, no more than a few feet from the surface. These massive tubes make this one of the most dangerous surf spots in the world and one of the venues for the VansTriple Crown of Surfing.
