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!

A Day at KCC Farmer’s Market in Hawaii
May. 8, 2018Leave a comment
Rise and shine! 😀 I began my morning at KCC Farmer’s Market! I came here to explore and have breakfast, especially after last night’s small meal. More like snacks!
What does KCC stand for? Where is it located?
KCC stands for Kapi’olani Community College. The farmer’s market is located near this college, in the parking lot area.
How to get there? Where to park?
You can take the bus, drive, lyft, uber, etc. I drove to the farmer’s market. They have a parking lot (Parking Lot C) where you can park your vehicle. Come early! It gets packed fast! Parking is free.
Is there an entrance fee?
Why I love Farmer’s Markets!
I’m madly in love with farmer’s markets and this is why! I love shopping for fresh fruits and vegetables from local producers. The produce is much fresher in comparison to store bought produce! I love the outdoorsy atmosphere. I enjoy walking around and visiting each vendor! It’s so much fun!
Here I am, at KCC Farmer’s Market!
As the sign states: Aloha & Welcome. Every Saturday, 7:30 am – 11:00 am. No pets.
Let’s go find food. 🙂
I had the Acai Bowl. A typical Acai Bowl consists of acai puree or sorbet as the base. The base of this particular Acai Bowl was puree. Granola is added for that crunch. The bowl is topped off with fruit, such as blueberries, bananas, and strawberries. Lastly, drizzled with honey. For me, I told them to hold the honey. Honey isn’t vegan.
On the other hand, my travel buddy had the Garlic Shrimp Scampi. As you can see, we have different dietary preferences.
Where to eat?
Tables and chairs are available at the vendors, but very few. It fills up quick. They have grassy areas and curbs to sit down and eat. You can watch little birdies run around while you enjoy your meal. 🙂
What I brought home with me!
I left the farmer’s market with a bag of carrots, cherry tomatoes, and rambutan. Rambutan is a tropical fruit that is native to the Malay-Indonesian region and other parts of Southeast Asia. It is red, plum-sized with soft spines all-over. Don’t worry, they’re not that scary and are edible. Have you tried them before?
Have you been to KCC Farmer’s Market? Share your experience! 🙂
- Get there early.
- Parking is very tight and crowded, but it is free.
- Bring cash.
- Also opens on Tuesdays, 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm.
