North Shore of Oahu Island

The island has a lot to offer, from the busy streets of Waikiki with its shops and restaurants tropical forests and stunning beaches. I did a day trip to The North Shore of Oahu which encompasses the 17-mile north-facing coastal area between Ka’ena Point in the west and eastward to Kahuku Point.

Surfboard on the beach

After renting a car I drove across the island to the famous for its big waves and surfing culture north shore. It is not a long drive and since I got a convertible mustang (it was so much fun to drive that car), I took my time to enjoy it and the scenery on my way.

When I finally got there, spent some time checking out a few local shops, had lunch and of course checked out the local beaches.

It was a beautiful, sunny, and windy day, but I did not see any big waves. The height of the waves depends on the time of the year and the weather. Most 30-foot waves are prevalent in the winter months but calm down in the summer to allow for glorious diving and snorkelling conditions. The place had a much more laid-back atmosphere than the more polished Honolulu.

Spotted a few people with surfboards
