Sunset Beach, North Shore, Oahu
Oahu’s famous North Shore, located about an hour’s drive from Waikiki, is known for its legendary waves and daring surf riders. There are several miles of beaches on the North Shore, the majority of which offer surfing, snorkeling and of course lots of sun. In the winter months, when the waves are at their highest, surf competitions bring in the most elite riders in the world. The North Shore’s Sunset Beach is a great place to hang out and watch the surfers, or maybe hang 10 if you’re experienced enough to brave that ocean. And don’t forget to stay for the stunning Hawaii sunsets for which the beach is named.
