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!

Waimea Bay North Shore Hawaii
Aug. 21, 2018Leave a comment
Aloha Waimea Bay! Waimea Bay is a beautiful beach on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. A famous surfing beach due to the large shore breaks during the winter season. In the summertime, the waters are more calm. A perfect time for swimming and snorkeling. Waimea Bay is also well-known for the gigantic rock (pictured above with me) called Jump Rock. It is approximately 25 ft high. You can climb up to the top of the rock and jump off if you choose to do so. If you’ve been here, have you jumped off the rock? Share your experience with me. 🙂

Free parking lot. Just watch out for chickens and roosters running around freely. They are so cute!
E komo mai! Welcome to Waimea Bay!
Some fun facts about Waimea Bay:
- It is known for fishing and agricultural lands where Hawaiins grew taro, sweet potato, and many other traditional crops.
- Surfing in Waimea Bay is a long-standing tradition.
- Eddie Aikau is a famous lifeguard and surfer of Waimea Bay.
- Waves in the wintertime can reach up to 40 plus feet!
- A place for winter surfers and ocean lovers.
- In Hawaiin, Waimea means “reddish water.”
Views of Waimea Bay at a Glance:
Yes, that’s what the warning sign says. If you simply look at the rock, it looks easy. If you’re there in person, it looks bigger and more dangerous. The waves were pretty strong when I was at Waimea Bay. I was almost pulled into the ocean just by dipping my feet into the ocean water! Luckily, nothing bad happened. I would only recommend experienced divers and good swimmers to participate in this activity.

I was pretty fascinated by it. 🙂
Goodbye Waimea Bay…
It’s so green as ever.
