The North Shore is home to the world-famous Banzai Pipeline, Waimea Bay and
Sunset Beach, known for their epic winter waves and international surf competitions.
Charming and rustic towns are yours to discover. It's exciting, refreshing and at the
same time infused with a laid-back country feel. Stretching for more than 7 miles, the
beaches of the North Shore host the world's premier surfing competitions during the
winter months. Stroll in the thick sands of Waimea Bay, Ehukai Beach (Banzai
Pipeline) and Sunset Beach, but leave the surfing to the pros. From May to September,
the waves subside, creating a more tranquil atmosphere for surfing, swimming and
sunbathing. About an hour drive from Waikiki, the North Shore is also home to condos,
the luxurious Turtle Bay Resort and Haleiwa Town, where you can shop and eat like a local.
