If there is such a thing as a perfect wave, you’ll likely find it on Oahu’s North Shore. The big, glassy winter waves of this legendary surf mecca attract the best surfers in the world, while summer waves are far smaller and more gentle – all of which makes the North Shore the perfect surf spot for beginners and veterans alike.
Just a one hour drive from Waikiki, you will find just a few hotels and condos in this quiet and remote location. North Shore highlights include historic surf town Haleiwa and the birth spot of big wave surfing Waimea Bay. It is a great place to stay if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle.
