Rent a car, and make a day of it. Be sure to go to Waimea Valley, and hike to the waterfall for a swim....beautiful, eat at Matsumoto's Shave Ice, and eat from a shrimp truck.

The North Shore of Oahu is heaven. Best. Vacation. Ever. I pity the poor souls who go to Honolulu/Wakiki and think they have been to Hawaii. The North Shore has everything. This is my first trip that I spent a lot of quality time and drove around the island. We used GyPSy app on our phone and it was like... More

Every time I come To Hawaii, I visit this Beach. It's never crowded and plenty of places to eat and a Sun Tan is a must here. it seems like the sun is closer on this end of the island and the Sea Turtles hang out a lot on this end of the island.

Many custom boutiques, surf shops and SUP outlets. Plus Shaved Ice and a stall selling Spam T shirts and stuff. They eat more Spam in Hawaii than anywhere else. It was off season as the big surf waves are Nov-Jan. It gets tourist trade yet it retains a charming atmosphere., Even MacDonalds blends in

Renting a car for a week was the most economical way for us to enjoy our first visit to Oahu--we could tour at our leisure and we could stop when we saw something was interested us.

We stayed in a hotel in Waikiki for 3 nights, but we drove to the north shore twice. The beaches, food trucks, etc. made it a great place to spend two days.

The North Shore is a great place to get away from the south side of the island which is crowded. It has a lot of locals and a lot of great beaches to see. You have three tables, Sunset Beach, Wiamea rock, And Shark Cove. Parking can sometimes be an issue as there is not a lot here. Sharks Cove... More

Love the "old Hawaii" atmosphere. Lots to do: beautiful beaches, flora and fauna, restaurants, et al. My favorite area on Oahu.
