A North Shore Oahu Vacation

As the primary filming location for the television series, "Lost," North Shore Oahu is widely recognized as one of the most attractive vacation sites. Whether visitors want the optimal beach experience, to feel their feet in the sand and the sun on their back, they come to Oahu. When visiting North Shore Oahu, most people want to exploit the best the island has to offer and will stay in the Sunset Beach House, overlooking the shoreline and in walking distance to surf destinations.


Hawaiians often boast of the powerful waves brought in by the Pacific ocean. As you stand on a roaring wave for the first time, you will feel excitement the water and the warm sun engulf you. Surfing has been a hobby of Hawaiians for generations. You will have a connection with the people of the great island as you ride the wave and they regard you as one of their own. People who know how to surf also become more intuitive. They have to pay attention to their surroundings (lest they will themselves tossed to and fro by the waves).


There are deep places in the world that many people will never explore or get to see. There are things down there that only those with the courage to see will see. Snorkeling is an outlet for that ambition. If you want to witness the marine line up close, in their natural habitat as a passive observer, North Shore Oahu provides abundant opportunity. There are plenty of areas teaming with life and organisms, fish and coral, which you will be able to see up close. You will also have the security of learning under the supervision of expert trainers in North Shore Oahu, such as The Surf Bus.

Surfer The Bar

After a day at the beach, you may want to wind down by sitting back with the locals and enjoying live music with a cold beer in your hand. There are an array of lively pubs throughout North Shore Oahu, particularly Surfer The Bar in Kahuku. They even have a living room stage for people to relay old surfing legends to the audience. You never know what might happen in the deep waters of North Shore Oahu. Perhaps what they are saying is true.

Waimea Valley

This one might be particularly appealing to Lost enthusiasts. The hiking trails featured on the beloved television drama come to life in the Waimea Valley in Haleiwa. Indulge in the rich history of the people of North Shore Oahu as you traverse these trails that have been part of the history of the Hawaiians for generations. The captivating scenery blended with the long history has generated a unique allure, unparalleled in other parts of the world. On a particularly hot day, you can even take a dip in the waterfall to cool off.


People come to North Shore Oahu for the sun and the beaches. It is particularly potent during the summer months, when it is between 75 °F to 90 °F. If that is a little much for you, consider coming out between December and April. This also comes with the benefit of averting the hurricane season. It is seasonably cool, ranging from 65 °F to 80 °F.

How To Get There

Most visitors choose to rent a car. That is the most convenient option. Others choose a hotel that is near most of their destinations so that they can walk. Another live option is to take the public transportation system.
