North Shore

North Shore

Away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, Oahu's North Shore offers all the beauty without the crowds. Only one hotel, Turtle Bay Resort, calls the North Shore home, making it much less populated by tourists. Stop at any of the beaches along Kamehameha Highway, including Waimea Bay, for white sand, jewel-toned water and lots of relaxation. During the winter months, crowds do pick up a bit for the surfing competitions that play out of these beaches, including the famous Pipeline, a surf reef break which produces enormous waves. For great eats, head to the town of Kahuku to sample the famous Kahuku corn and don't miss Giovanni's Original White Shrimp Truck, which offers the most delicious and garlicky Kahuku shrimp scampi you've ever tasted. Take the hour drive from Waikiki for a day trip you won't soon forget.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it! Buy Miu Miu

I've always wanted to go to Wakiki. What a fun vacation to do with your hubby! The water and the island look so beautiful, something I would love to experience. I'm trying to save up right now for a fun trip, and Wakiki might just be the place!

I love how the island of Oahu offers a mix of urban, big-city attractions and secluded natural beauty all within close proximity of each other. Between the snorkeling, the mountain climbing and all the fun things to do in Waikiki, Oahu definitely seems to be where it’s at for the ultimate Hawaiian adventure.
