• Waimea Beach Park North Shore Oahu


North Shore Oahu Hawaii

For something a bit quieter and more laidback, head to Oahu's North Shore. 

See the famous Banzai Pipeline, where the waves curl into magnificent tubes in the winter at Ehukai Beach Park.

Swim or snorkel the summer's calm waters or surf the mammoth winter waves of Waimea Bay, made popular by the Beach Boys song Surfin' USA. 

Plus, check out the remains of the archaeological site of Hale O Lono Helau in Waimea Valley and see the Waihi Falls, at the back of the valley where the falls plunge into a fantastic swimming pond.
