Oahu is a very small island, and even if you plan on spending most of your time here in Honolulu/Waikiki and other places along the south side of the island, I think it's important that you take a day and get to the north side. There is plenty to do and see here, from the Pipeline (surfing), various beaches (turtle beach, beaches where the TV show Lost was filmed at) to swimming under a waterfall.Recommended for:

There is so much to do on the North Shore, but you must come during the Triple Crown at the end of the year. It's amazing to see the huge waves, but even more amazing to see people ride them. Shave ice is great on the North Shore, and the atmosphere is very laid back.Recommended for:

Scenic.area featuring lovely beaches supporting a variety of activities. The dining options may be limited yet if you do a bit of searching you can find some amazing and memorable spots.

North Shore is old school. It's nice and quite, relaxed and chilled that is in June/July when the swell is flatter. During december there are plenty of tourists in town for the Vans Triple Crown and its awesome to watch the best of the best surfers in the world take on some monster waves. It's a lot more suburban round this side of the island and a bit more of a cultural experience.Recommended for:

Famous for surf, surfers and rustic food trucks, Oahu's North Shore has become something of a tourist destination. Growing up on Oahu, I've only been here around 10 times in my entire life. Why? It takes awhile to get to, so there needs to be a reason for you to visit. Check out the exciting beaches with their huge waves, the Kahuku shrimp trucks and the quaint old town of Haleiwa.Recommended for:

Like another world away from Waikiki...it's green, lush and hilly on the way there with completely different beaches...big and not full of tourists. The waves were small and calm when I was there...but there were plenty of turtles chilling on the beach and beautiful scenery

There's a local saying, "keep the country country". North Shore is a beautiful small town, with local farmers' markets, craft shops, eateries, small businesses, historical buildings, farms, ranches, and home to the best surf spots in the world. It's a nice drive around the north coast of Oahu, lots to see and do.

Grab some poke, get your board, and hit the beach! The North Shore doesn't have all the resorts, hotels, and bars everywhere like the South Shore. Most of the beaches sit right behind private houses. The swells get bigger here in the winter time and it's quite a site seeing some of the pros rip through pipeline and other monster waves. It's much more serene on that side of the island IMHO.

So what's a Day like on the NORTH SHORE of OAHU??? Let Wayde's World Hawaii SHOW YOU! There are an endless amount of things to do and places to visit and here is an example of a typical day spent there: Driving through Pineapple fields, you can smell them on your way to the North Shore, We stop for a beautiful hike up Kealia Trail then Breakfast at Café Haleiwa or The Coffee Gallery, off to grab some Shaved Ice at either Aloha General Store or Matsumoto's. Off to Laniakea Beach to see some Honu basking in the sun. Then it's off to Waimea Bay to jump off "THE BIG ROCK" and across the street Waimea Valley to see the Falls if it's flowing (Winter months only) We head over to Three Tables and Sharks Cove for some choice snorkeling and for lunch right across the street, Sharks Cove Grill! We leave for the Famous Surfers Paradise "PIPELINE", then it's off to grab some fresh fruit and fried banana's at Kahuku Land Farms right before Turtle Bay Resort. From the Turtle Bay Resort parking lot we head on foot to the Secluded and sacred Private Bay...KAWELA! We head for dinner at Giovanni's Shrimp Truck and back track to end a PERFECT DAY IN PARADISE at Sunset Beach to watch one of the most beautiful SUNSETS on EARTH! A day on the North Shore...Choose what you want to do out in the country! MAKE IT YOUR PARADISE!
