There’s no doubt that surfing is a way of life on Oahu. With well over 100 surf spots surrounding the island, there are plenty of waves and action to catch at one of the island’s many beaches.

From the rolling waves of Waikiki to the legendary winter swells on the North Shore, people from all around the world come to Oahu to see and experience the thrill of the ocean sport for themselves.

And although many of these surfers come for only a short period of time, some have the luxury of living close to their second home, the sea.

Here are some Oahu properties that are designed for catching waves while also providing the comfort of home.

North Shore Beauty


On the lookout for immense waves? Then the legendary surf mecca of North Shore will definitely be the apple of your eye. The coastal area attracts the best surfers in the world thanks to its massive waves and widely known surfing competitions.

Overlooking the gorgeous North Shore beach is this large and well-designed home that in addition to stunning views, offers over 3,400 square feet of interior living space on and over 13,000 square feet of private gated land – all while being steps away from the rolling waves of the Pacific Ocean.

Maunalua Bay Paradise


Located between Diamond Head and Koko Head, Maunalua Bay forms the shoreline of the Hawaii Kai area of Honolulu. Known for its deep and powerful waves, surfers from all over come to Maunalua Bay to ride the majestic waves for themselves.

Honolulu Retreat


If you’re all about big-city living while also being steps away from the tropical ocean waves, then Honolulu might be the place for you. The city may be a hotspot for Hawaii’s business, touristic attractions and night scene, but it is also a hotbed for surfing up some majestic waves.
