Oahu’s North Shore offers a little something for everyone, from art galleries to roadside shrimp trucks to views, like this from the Ehukai Pillbox Hike. It overlooks the expanse of white sandy beaches that make the North Shore so special. All photos by Tyra Tabayoyong.

Located just north of Waimea Bay, Shark’s Cove is a secluded beach popular for swimming and snorkeling. An aerial view of the area’s reef looks like a shark, giving it its name. With its crystal-blue water and impressive amount of sea life, it is also the perfect location for diving and underwater exploring.

Waimea Bay, located across from Waimea Falls Park, is one of the most popular beaches on the North Shore. During the winter, Waimea Bay is a playground for big-wave riders and a great spot for people to watch daring surfers. However, during the summer months, the bay consists of calmer waters.

By sunset, hues of pink and orange paint the skies. The tints of gray-blue signify the sun about to dip below the horizon. This moment was captured on the drive back home, wrapping up a fun-filled day on Oahu’s North Shore.

One exciting feature of Waimea Bay is the famous rock known for cliff jumping. It is located just off shore, on the left side of the bay. The 35-to-40-foot rock has become a major tourist attraction that is not only used for cliff jumping but also its underwater tunnel. Beachgoers can swim through it, if they dare.
