Hang 10 (or just hang out) on the Hawaiian island of Oahu

Hawaii's reputation more than precedes it, and you can experience it all with a wide selection of Pupukea vacation rentals. Far from the crowded beaches and tightly packed resorts of Honolulu and Waikiki, Pupukea is in the north of Oahu, where the surf breaks are the stuff of legends, the beaches wide and quiet, and the waves absolutely monstrous come winter. If you're a surfer, then Pupukea is the perfect place for your next vacation, but even if you prefer your water sports on the calmer side, you'll find plenty to keep you happy in Pupukea.

Things to do

Keep calm and catch your breath in breathtaking Oahu

On Oahu's North Shore it's all about the great outdoors. Whether you're surfing, swimming, snorkeling, or simply watching an epic sunset from one of the many Pupukea vacation rentals, the area's natural beauty is sure to astound and inspire. A great introduction to the area can be found at Waimea Bay Beach Park or Pupkea Beach Park, both of which offer miles of white-sand beaches and protected marine life. Further inland, you'll find pineapple and coffee plantations—stop at Green World Coffee Farm and you can get a taste of the local brew for yourself.

Activities

Supersized waves make for a surfer's paradise in Pupukea

Just saying the names of the area's famous beaches—Waimea, Sunset, Pipeline—is enough to bring a tear to a surfer's eye. But if you're visiting in the winter, when waves can reach a mind-boggling 40 feet, you may want to leave the surfing to the pros. In the summer, once the waves drop off, stand-up paddle boarding is a big hit, while diving and kayaking are great ways to spend a little more time in the water. Away from the shore, Pupukea vacation rentals offer easy access to great hiking and horseback riding opportunities as well.

Weather

Endless summer(s)—Hawaii's tropical paradise

Of course, it would hardly be paradise without perfect weather. Temperatures are consistent, hovering between 70 and 85 degrees year round, with the warmest weather in the summer, between June and August. This is also when the waves of the North Shore are at their most approachable for non-professional surfers, and it's also when beaches are most likely to be open for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and diving. Winter (November–February) is the busy season, when the weather is ever-so-slightly cooler. Come in spring (March–April) or fall (September–October) and you might find the beaches slightly less busy, but still just as beautiful.

Natural features

Sun, sea, sand, and surf—Pupukea's scenic splendor

Pupukea is 36 miles north of Honoulu, roughly an hour's journey by car, on Oahu's North Shore. At the southern end of Pupukea you'll find the famous Waimea Bay, one of the most popular beaches on the island, while surfers will be heading straight to the breaks of Sunset, Pipeline, Velzyland, and Kammieland. Pupukea Beach Park is a great place to start for snorkeling and diving, with Three Tables and Sharks Cove both popular spots. Inland, you'll find that the state's iconic, lush landscape is home to pineapple and coffee plantations.
