North Shore is Oahu's version of a California countryside surf town. Attracting both tourists and residents alike, you'll be charmed by its slow, chill, and small-town feel, not to mention its world-famous beaches and surf spots.
You won't find a plethora of boutique coffee shops, trendy bars or big corporate stores in Haleiwa or Laie. Instead, you'll find a 25 mile stretch along one main road called Kamehameha Highway, with a max speed of 25-35 mph. Yes, it can be a headache when there is a legendary surf event happening, during rush hour (if you work in the east) or following an incident, but it’s a part of its small-town charms.
Epic surfing takes place at Waimea Beach, Pipeline and Sunset Beach. World-renowned pro surfers gather to this region during the winter to snag competition titles at annual contests. Not to worry though, the waves aren’t always that big; smaller waves are found here too for beginner and intermediate level surfers.
Being a resident of North Shore means you'll get to know all of your neighbors. It also means you'll have proximity to the water or literally, having the beach as your backyard to witness daily awe-inspiring sunsets. This truly is a magical place to live if you dream of leading a beachside lifestyle.
