North Shore Oahu Neighborhood Information by Better Homes & Gardens Advantage Realty

O’ahu’s Spectacular North Shore

A former sugar plantation town,Kahuku still retains its warm-hearted village personality. The old sugar mill is now a shopping center and the old plantation hospital is a modern medical facility.

The cozy community of La’ie is surrounded by opulent natural beauty, but is most renowned for the world-famous Polynesian Cultural Center, one of Hawaii’s most popular visitor attractions.

The North Shore has some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world. This is rural Hawaii, with giant, sweeping vistas of pristine green countryside, and sandy beaches, but it is also the surfing capital of the world. The summers are leisurely, but 20-foot waves swell in November through April, attracting droves of big-wave surfers.

The neighborhoods of Waimea, Sunset Beach and Kawailoa are all tiny and situated close to such world-famous surfing spots as Banzai Pipeline and Kammieland.

The large, moneyed community of Pupukea is perched on a ridge above the action with to-die-for views of it all.

The undisputed star of North Shore neighborhoods is Hale’iwa, a charismatic community proud to be a part of the State List of Historic Places. Once a playground of Hawaiian royalty and the weekend getaway of Victorian-era vacationers, today’s Haleiwa is a quaint hamlet of rustic Paniolo architecture, charming shops, art galleries and restaurants.

Waialua is a former sugar plantation town now undergoing a metamorphosis including new businesses in renovated buildings at the old Waialua Sugar Mill.
