Along the northern shores from Kahuku Point to the tip of Kaena Point, the Northern Pacific pounds Oahu’s coastline and is the driving force behind life of the North Shore. Swimming, snorkeling, fishing, sailing, scuba diving, and surfing are popular recreational activities for residents of the area.
A softer, mellow nightlife dominates the North Shore, compared to the intense nightlife in Oahu’s Honolulu, with Haleiwa as the gastronomic, social, and arts center. Art galleries, restaurants, boutiques and surfboard shops bound. Although a quieter area of Oahu, the North Shore becomes a pretty busy area from early to mid-winter with surfing competitions and increased tourist traffic.
Residential life focuses on condominiums, beach houses in some of the smaller, idyllic and quiet communities and homes overlooking some of most scenic areas in the world. A tangle of smaller, laid back communities offer a much more relaxed lifestyle than might be found in the island’s main city, Honolulu.
This popular North Shore neighborhood is showing Median List Prices at historic highs, reflected by both low supply and high demand. There is much less inventory than other areas of the island, which leads to higher prices for SFHs and lower sales.
