About the Area
North Shore of Oahu
Renowned for its legendary beaches and open country, the North Shore of Oahu is arguably the most sought-after place to live in Hawaii. Blessed with an idyllic year-round climate, Oahu is a recreation-lover’s Eden: it’s sparkling azure waters perfect for any ocean activity, from snorkeling to deep-sea fishing to sailing.
Home to the world-renowned Sunset Beach, Pipeline and Waimea Bay, a stretch of beaches known as the “Seven-Mile Miracle”, the North Shore has the most famous surf spots on the globe and is the mecca of surfing — the place where every surfer comes to prove their worth.
From pineapple fields near Wahiawa to Waialua coffee fields to polo fields in Mokuliea, to the colorful atmosphere of Haleiwa’s cool surf shops, boutiques and art galleries, enjoy “Old Hawaii” at its very best — take a hike in Waimea Valley or stop by a roadside stand in Kahuku and pick up fresh papaya, drink from an iced cold coconut or savor a shrimp plate — all just 45 minutes to the airport and the city of Honolulu with its robust culture and entertainment. Nowhere else will you find that you have quite literally the best of both worlds.
The legendary big, glassy winter waves of this world-famous surf mecca attract only the best surfers in the world. Roughly a one-hour drive from Waikiki and stretching for more than 7 miles, the beaches of the North Shore of Oahu host the most premier surfing competitions during it’s winter months peak, including the Super Bowl of wave riding, the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing from November – December.
The months between November and February are the best times to watch big waves — reaching heights of 40 feet or more. In the summer months, from May to September, the waves subside, creating a more tranquil atmosphere for surfing, swimming, stand up paddling, world-class scuba and snorkeling — making the North Shore of Oahu the perfect spot for beginners, pros and veterans alike.
The North Shore is also home to the luxurious Turtle Bay Resort, with 36 holes of championship golf — including the world-renowned George Fazio and Arnold Palmer courses — and a host of luxurious amenities, including landscaped pools, tennis courts, horseback riding, hiking, mountain bike trails, a surfing school, spa facilities, and world-class dining and shopping.
Or, take a day trip to Haleiwa Town, where you can shop, eat like a local and cool off with rainbow flavored shaved ice, an ideal way to end your day on the North Shore.
North Shore Beaches
Whether you plan to relax the time away oceanside by hammock or plan an action-packed day of snorkeling, paddle-boarding, surfing, kayaking, hiking and more — Oahu’s beaches have it all. Explore 112 miles of coastline including the world-famous Waikiki Beach and the high-octane winter waves of the North Shore.
Turtle Bay: Located on Oahu’s northeastern tip, past Haleiwa and near Kahuku, this beach is protected from large waves and surf and is one of the island’s best places to snorkel, occasionally offering visitors a chance to see a honu (Hawaiian green sea turtle).
Sunset Beach: Sunset is just up the highway from the pounding waves of Pipeline and Waimea, but neither match Sunset’s space or personality. Encompassing a dozen different reef breaks, this two-mile-long beach spans in distance from Ehukai Beach (Banzai Pipeline) to Sunset Point and is considered the longest stretch of rideable surf spots on the globe. Known for big wave surfing during the winter season, the beach is home to the Triple Crown of Surfing. Sunset Beach provides the most tempting combination of sun, sand, sea and surf. With its golden sand, swaying palms and warm waters, the weather is near perfect, ranging from 70 F to 85 F, with water temperatures ranging from 66 F to 72 F.

There are also wonderful tide pools, great for collecting shells and observing nature.
Waimea Bay: This legendary beach is notorious as one of the first places surfers in the 1950’s began to ride big waves. In the summer, the swells subside for optimal swimming and snorkeling. With full public facilities, this is a popular beach for locals and visitors.
Ehukai Beach (Banzai Pipeline): The massive tubes at Banzai Pipeline break over a reef, no more than a few feet from the surface, making it one of the most renowned spots for big wave pro surfers. It is also one of the venues for the Triple Crown of Surfing.
Waimea Bay is a beautiful North Shore Beach that is coined with having given birth to the big wave-riding phenomenon in the 1950s. Waimea Bay is also home to the Eddie Aikau Big Wave Invitational held only when the waves reach 40 feet or higher. With wide stretches of sand to sunbathe and picnic, the Bay is also known for a big jump rock, popular with locals and visitors alike.
Nearby, you can also explore Waimea Valley, a gorgeous botanical garden that is home to beautiful Waimea Falls.
