Big Waves & Big Bites at North Shore Oahu

In winter, North Shore Oahu is the place to watch professional surfers slay epic waves at Ehukai (Banzai Pipeline) and Sunset Beach, but that’s not all there is to this part of town.

If you come hungry, you will be served mouthwatering bites in a range of cuisines, from Peruvian to Hawaiian barbecue. Browse surf shops to see a kaleidoscope of boards, and check out the galleries for bold artwork.

Be sure to begin your adventure here earlier in the day, there is so much to see and do.
