Visiting Oahu’s North Shore is a must-do experience and is one of my top destinations to escape the rat race. Located an hour’s drive from Waikiki – it has a relaxed island vibe, stunning landscapes and is a lovely escape from Honolulu’s soaring skyscrapers and hustle-bustle lifestyle.
Regarded as the surf capital of the world, the North Shore boasts iconic surf spots as Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach and of course, the ferocious reef break of Banzai Pipeline. I spent a day exploring the North Shore and highlight my top 3 must-do experiences in the below video:
My top 3 things to do on Oahu’s North Shore are:
- Visit pipeline and watch the local surfers charge its waves
- Explore the town of Haleiwa
- Sample the region’s local food truck dishes
