Just an hour from Waikiki and Honolulu is Oahu’s famous North Shore. Renowned for its spectacular views, laidback beach vibe, unassuming lifestyle and of course – surfing. The North Shore is home to the best surf spots in the world including Banzai Pipeline and Sunset Beach which feature 30 foot swells in the winter months. Surfing isn’t the only activity on The North Shore, you will also find activities including snorkeling, paddle boarding, horseback riding, golfing and even sky diving. Dotted along the beautiful shoreline you’ll find charming quiet towns where time and your troubles no longer matter. Among the most famous is the Historic Hale’iwa Town which is the center of surf culture and the hub of the arts community on Oahu.
