I’ve always been pretty harsh with my opinion of Oahu. We spent time there for our honeymoon in the Summer of 2009, so it was pretty busy and crowded. We didn’t do much exploring, so when we decided to go back this past October, I was really excited to see some less-touristy sights. I’m happy to say that we had a much better experience this time and today I’m happy to share a guide to North Shore Oahu.Read More
During our trip to Oahu, we had to make a stop at one of my favorite spots, Sharks Cove. It’s a great spot to snorkel, wade around in the tide pools, or just hang out for a bit before making your way over to Haleiwa or the rest of the North Shore. We stopped in once for a small amount of time, but came back later to spend more time here. The boys enjoyed wading around the pools, and I hung back and took some photos.Read More
One of our bucket-list items for this trip to Hawaii was a venture out to Goat Island. It is a small island off the shore of Northern Oahu (Laie) that can be accessed by walking or swimming from Malaekahana State Recreation Area. The waves enter the area between Oahu and Goat Island from both sides, so they form a crossover pattern that can be a little difficult to navigate but worth it once you’re across.Read More
One of our next trips is to Oahu, part of the Hawaiian Islands. We’ve visited before during part of our honeymoon and didn’t do a lot of exploring except for going on a horseback ride. During a visit to an empty beach we came by some sea turtles who seemed un-bothered by us, but a giant tour bus pulled up and tourists flooded the beach. It really ruined the experience, and scared the turtles away. I’d love to see parts of Oahu that are not touristy and kind of natural.
Do you have any suggestions for us?Read More
