We loved the north shore. It had a more laid back island vibe, with amazing food trucks, cute towns and shops, and beautiful beaches. Don't miss the local feel and charm of the north shore.

Great spot away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki.
I wish we’d stayed a couple of nights at least.
Plenty of food option around Haleiwa and surrounds and some nice beaches.
Be aware, a lot of the beaches are quite rocky so reef/water shoes are recommended.

The North Shore has an abundance of great beaches and surf spots, as well as some great local businesses. It's a mecca for the surfing world. Traffic can be a bit heavy, even outside of the normal surfing season.

Not the time of the year for the big waves. Hardly any action at the beach - small ripples. Will plan to come again when surfing is at the peak.

My favourite thing to do. Hire a car and get away from Waikiki. It’s a wonderful drive and there are so many great places to visit on your way. Your Navman will want you to go the freeway but at least one way go along the shore line, it’s a beautiful drive. Google ‘North shore day trip itinerary’ and you will find some great days planned out for you. Don’t forget the food trucks!

For those who are not playing tourists in Honolulu just for 3 to 4 days, then take a day to visit North Shore to experience different scenes away from the hustle and bustle of a city.

Once we are out from the city, we will see shorelines and shorlines,high surfing waves, surfers and beach goers .

Go as far as Haleiwa, to explore this little town, something different from Honolulu for sure.

Bus 65 from Ala Moana Center goes all the way to Haleiwa, and we can stop along any prominent beach along the way.

The North Shore is THE place to go to slow down, mingle with locals, and truly enjoy Hawaii. There are great towns along the way to enjoy great local food.

The North Shore gives the tourist a more complete view of Oahu. The food trucks are outstanding, turtle watching is stunning and the big waves and brave surfers are entertaining.

The North Shore all day tour today with Tiho as guide and driver was thorough, on time and overall fun & well-done. Tiho gave tons of interesting commentary on Hawaian history, facts, etc., as he drove us to various tourist points around Oahu. I would recommend this tour to visitors who have just arrived to Oahu, since this tour shows you many of the wonderful things to see and experience here.

Tripadvisor has been hacked!
The location labeled “north shore” on the map is in downtown Honolulu, about 45 minutes drive away from the real North Shore.
