Exploring Hawaii

What is North Shore?

You’ve already been introduced to parts of the North Shore in Hawaii — Waimea Bay and Laniakea Beach. But what is the North Shore exactly? The North Shore is a laid-back beach town at the northernmost point of Oahu (see map below). Think gorgeous beautiful beaches, gigantic untamed waves, and professional surfing!

Location:

North Shore. Oahu. Hawaii. Hale’iwa is the most popular North Shore town.

I love this picture. Peaceful, quietness, in the middle of nowhere.

There’s lots of food trucks and shaved ice here, so off we went to find Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck! Not for me, of course. 😋

Where is Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck located?

Here’s a map. Get it? Got it? Good. Let’s go find that Shrimp Truck!

I’m feeling that laid-back beach, surfer atmosphere. It’s a whole different environment compared to the touristy Waikiki. I enjoyed my time here. Let’s come back when the sun is out. I want to feel the sunshine on my face on the North Shore. 🌞

Goodbye North Shore *waves*

Laniakea Beach or Turtle Beach in Hawaii.

Laniakea Beach or Turtle Beach in Hawaii.

Good morning! Welcome to the North Shore in Hawaii! What drew me to this place were the gigantic green sea turtles! Sadly, I wasn’t lucky enough to spot a green sea turtle. 🙁 Perhaps next time when I’m in Hawaii. Hopefully, very soon!

The green sea turtles are federally protected under the state law of Hawaii and the Endangered Species Act. Please do not harass the green sea turtles. They are beautiful creatures, by the way. I absolutely love marine animals. I’ve always been captivated by the beauty of marine animals.

If you’ve been to Laniakea Beach or Turtle Beach, have you spotted a green sea turtle? If you have, lucky you! 🙂

Location:

Oahu’s North Shore (see map below)

Parking:

There’s a small parking lot across the beach area. Be careful when you cross the street. Lots of cars driving by. Parking is free.

I wish had seen a green sea turtle. Just once in this lifetime it may happen. A girl can only dream…

Have you been to Laniakea Beach? How did you like it?

Travel Tips:

  1. Laniakea Beach is also known as Turtle Beach.
  2. Do not harm the green sea turtles or harass them.
  3. Parking is across the beach. It is very small and tight. But don’t worry, you’ll find a parking spot.
