Fun Things to Do on Oahu’s North Shore

Everyone is very aware of the famous North Shore of Oahu, where the island’s most beautiful beaches are found and the annual big wave surf competitions bring the worlds best to this quiet stretch of island. The famous beaches that line this part of the island are among the most popular places to visit on the entire island, and once you’ve been here, you’ll see why. But, there are many other fun things to do on Oahu’s North Shore, and though a day spent sitting on the beach is always welcome, you have the chance to really have some fun during your trip.

As you would guess, the activities on the North Shore are mostly centered on the ocean, and the thing that is at the top of every list is surfing. Most that visit have little to no experience surfing, and beginners have the opportunity to learn on the world’s top surf spot. Though the sizes of waves will not be the giants that the pros ride, you can still say that you surfed on Oahu’s North Shore!

The ocean is always the star of the show in Hawaii, and there is one activity that takes you out to the deep and takes place in the middle of the ocean. The thrilling activity is Diving with Sharks in Hawaii, and though it might seem a little intimidating at first, it is perfectly safe, and you have the chance to swim with sharks in Hawaii. Head out from the harbor to a known gathering place for a variety of shark species and jump in. A state of the art shark cage keeps you safe, and puts you just inches away from the fish that is at the top of the ocean’s food chain.  

One activity that is a ton of fun is simply lounging on the beach and the North Shore delivers on places to lounge. Haleiwa Beach Park is the first place you’ll come across when you arrive and the extremely calm waters and occasional visit from a green sea turtle makes this a great place to relax. Plus, it’s close to food and amenities, making it a great family beach. Farther along the shore is the trio of surf beaches that, depending on the season, are great for watching surf competitions in the winter and enjoying calm waters and swimming in the summer.

Through all of the years, the North Shore of Oahu has retained its charm and character, and is one of the best places on the island to visit. Head to the North Shore and enjoy a day of fun things to do and great places to eat. From Haleiwa and beyond, this will be one of your favorite places on Oahu and there is no doubt that you will enjoy everything that the North Shore has to offer.
