If you’re looking for the perfect wave, you might find it at the surfing mecca of North Shore. Clear blue water, white sand, and friendly animals attract tourists throughout the year. In the winter, though, especially in December, the surfers take over. For beginners, there are numerous surf schools; true professionals get an invitation to an exclusive competition, held every year when waves are 6.1 m (20 ft) or higher. Filmmakers have used the beach as the backdrop for a number of surfing movies, and the television show "Lost" shot scenes here as well. Plan to visit North Shore and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Haleiwa attractions using our Haleiwa vacation trip planner.
