This is Hawaii, green, open, unfettered, unpaved, uncrowded, unhurried, clean. People who do not stray from them crowded, manicured pools of Waikiki or its crowded less than pristine beach are doing themselves no favors!

Witnessing the huge waves at the North Shore each winter is epic! Wave heights often reach 40 feet in height, before crashing along the coastline. These waves are dangerous, stay back, and out of the water; as many people have drowned in past years!

We ended up visiting the North Shore twice on our trip. It only took about 1 hr to get from Waikiki Beach where we stayed to the shore. We absolutely loved the beaches and country feel. We had a free day near the end of the trip and decided to visit one last time before we left. We loved Sunset... More

The beaches in the North Shore were great - especially Turtle and Kailua Beach. At Turtle Beach we saw beautiful Green Sea Turtles and both beaches had pristine sand and beautiful views of the Mountains. I recommend going on a day trip here by car to have a look at all the beaches on the coastline. Also, we went of... More

Must see beaches, shops, get shave ice, eat at Haleiwa Joe's. Wyland gallery is beautiful. Plan to return south on perimeter road down through Sunset beach and Pipeline. Bring swimsuits and cash for roadside coconuts.

Surf season is from Nov to Mar. The town is sleepy during this time. Great place to drive around and see the shops, beach area and local restaurants.

A little known walking tour is offered by the Visitor centre of the historical village of Hale'iwa. My husband and I decided to take up the 90 minute walking tour ($10 per person) that a local docent (Boyd) hosted. He was timely and had a wealth of local and island history. The tour started with the history of the importance... More
