Local Attractions

There's so much more to the North Shore than just phenomenal beaches and world class waves. Tour a pineapple farm, swim with schools of tropical fish, visit historic Hale'iwa town and grab some shave ice from Matsumoto's while shopping, ride horseback through the jungle of Pūpūkea mountain, hike the La'ie summit, or experience Hawaii's historic culture at the Polynesian Cultural Center. On this page you'll find links to the major attractions - as well as some of our favorites - that you can use as a guide while staying with us.

Want more in depth information for the area as well as a calendar of events? You'll find a teal book in your room from Seek Spot, Oahu's guest guidebook. Be sure to check them out online as well so you can plan ahead and grab coupons!
