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!
North Shore. Oahu. Hawaii. Hale’iwa is the most popular North Shore town.
Let’s explore the North Shore!
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!
At Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck:
Tables are available if you’re interested in dining here. FYI, it was busy, full, and packed!
Let’s explore North Shore some more!
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. 🌞
Awesome place to be if you love being at the ocean, to surf, hangout with friends, and be chill. There’s nowhere else I would rather be than the North Shore in Hawaii. ❤ Have you been to the North Shore in Hawaii? How did you like it? What’s your favorite place and thing to do on the North Shore? 😊
- Small roads and small parking lots.
- About 1 hour drive from Waikiki.
- Rain or sunshine, it doesn’t matter. Visit North Shore anytime!
- Enjoy the laid-back beach life and appreciate its unique culture!
