My husband, two granddaughters, and I traveled to Oahu, HI, at the beginning of this summer, visiting our son and daughter-in-law. They are stationed at Schofield Barracks. It was a wonderful trip that we will always cherish. While there, we were taken to several beaches and attractions. North Shore was hands-down our favorite beach area and its shops are very... More

We spent one day driving the north shore of Oahu during our stay and it was worth every second. Starting at Waimea Bay, the water and views are simply incredible. From there we went north to some other beaches such as Sunset, and Turtle Bay. On the way back, stop at the various food trucks on the side for some... More

The day spent up in North Shore was definitely the highlight of my stay in Honolulu. We didn't have a lot of time there so couldn't stay in a hotel up in North Shore for a few days, so we rented a car early morning and went from Honolulu up to North Shore for a beach-hopping day. Some beaches you... More

We stayed in mid July. So different from Waikiki. Beaches are beautiful and much less crowded. Great local food, fresh fruit and just a great atmosphere. We stayed at Turtle Bay and every time we went to Honolulu or Waikiki we couldn't wait to get back to the North Shore.

If you love Shrimp? The North shore is were you go. They have the best Shrimp trucks there. The ocean view is amazing. The shrimp trucks now have a patio you can eat at; the patio has tables, chairs and a sink. Great place.

Rented a car one day and traveled up to and around the North Shore. Make sure to stop and see the 'BLOW HOLE' and especially Turtle Bay Golf Resort on the way. The North Shore had plenty of surfboarders and kite surfers riding some impressive waves. Worth renting a car to see the sights and enjoy the scenery.

You can fish, swim, shop and take in the most breathtaking views of the sunset over the Pacific like you have never experience anywhere else on earth. A definite must see!
