Oahu's north shore is a surfer's paradise, but even if you're not ready to hang ten, a drive along the coast is still a great way to spend the day. Start the one-hour drive north from Waikiki early and head to Haleiwa Town for banana pancakes at Cafe Haleiwa. Then, cruise along the Kamehameha Highway and find a beach to call your own for the afternoon, from the remote Papailoa Beach (also known as Police Beach, a filming location for the TV show Lost) to the popular Ehukai Beach Park, home of the famous Banzai Pipeline surf break. Another essential North Shore pit stop is one of the shrimp trucks in Kahuku. The wait may be long at Romy's, but the reward — a heaping plate of fresh-caught wild shrimp, drenched in garlic and butter — is well worth it.
