North Shore Oahu

The North Shore encompasses the 17mile north-facing coastal area between Ka’ena Point in the west and east to Kahuku Point.  Fifty-one beaches stretch for more than 11 miles altogether, and outcrops of volcanic basalt rock form expanses of coastline.  Gigantic 30-foot waves are prevalent in the winter months but calm down in the summer to allow for glorious diving and snorkeling conditions. The crowds certainly gather in the area's top beaches like Sunset Beach (one of the longest surf ride locations in the world), Banzai Pipeline (Ehukai Beach) and Waimea Beach (one of the original surfing beaches in the 50’s) to soak in the rays and watch daring surfers.  READ MORE...
