The island of Oahu has more to offer than Honolulu of course. So we rented a car and drove up to the North shore. The landscape on the way there sure looked different, even the trees changed!
The street leading to the hotel
Sunset viewed from the hotel window
And the view on the next morning
Beaches to both sides!
But I was kind of scared by the irregular waves plus there are rocks, so I gave up after an hour. Olivier of course had to be dragged out by his dreadlocks ;-)
Around the hotel
Even the fire fighters have surf boards here!
So we also hung around Haleiwa which is probably the regional center there but still quite small. Actually, as soon as you drive out of Honolulu, it’s like you are very much out in the country - like on a different island.
And we went to a museum!
The first ever snowboard…. was actually an old surf board that they took up on a volcano!
