Huge waves bring out the surfers and these will be some of the prettiest waves you will ever see, sunset here is gorgeous. The drive to the area alone is breathtaking. It will be crowded and parking a challenge.

I traveled with friends (30 years and less), we all enjoyed the North Shore. We lives the island, but the North Shore really have an energy and a different vibe! It's young, fun and really just laid back. The best beaches are there also. 10/10 would go back any day!

What a fun trip. We took a car up north and had a great time on the beach. Watching all the surfers is just awesome. Rental car was the best way to go.

This is a great place to Surf. It was very breath taking place watching all the surfers. Make sure you get there early before all the tourist. This was definitely a place that I loved visiting while in Honolulu.

Winter season huge waves bring out the surfers and these will be some of the prettiest waves you will ever see, sunset here is gorgeous. The drive to the area alone is breathtaking. It will be crowded and parking difficult, but it is so worth the effort.

I do not like all the crowds on Honolulu and Waikiki , along with that is traffic . If I won the lottery this is where I would buy a house . Lots and lots of beaches , plenty of shops and restaurants . The towns are small and people are friendly .

If you have a motorcycle license find a rental place and get a M/C for a coupe day's...I have had a M/C license for a long time and to see the Island on that Harley was fabulous...The North Shore, Hana Highway, the smells of flowers and B/BQ'S was the best...If not rent a convertible...The cost was about $119. a day...

The North Shore is a beautiful stretch of coast line. While we don't surf, we loved watching the surfers and enjoyed the coast. We even got to enjoy watching several pods of whales out beyond the surfers. It is easy to find parking (either in lots or places created by others over time to reach the best waves). There are...

The water was fantastic and the surf was up. This is a must for all surfers. The water was a bit cold and you needs a skin suit but that did not interfered with the ride.
