North Shore


The North Shore, a 20-plus-mile stretch of coastline from Kaena Point in the west to Turtle Bay in the east, comes alive during the winter season when waves reach up 30 feet at Waimea Bay. In summer months, the shore break is usually calm enough for snorkeling and swimming. Haleiwa, is the North Shore's central town where there are interesting surf shops, dress boutiques, restaurants, art galleries, and not to mention Matsumoto Shave Ice, serving the best local icy treat!
