Hawaii’s North Shore – an Ultimate Winter Destination!!!


Spend your Holidays at an amazing location in the heart of Honolulu!  The Hawaiian Monarch Hotel will give you and your family an outstanding Value - Typically below $150 / night (and we offer our best deals during Winter!) – and a Holiday vacation that you’ll never forget! Forget about singing “Winter World of Love” and put on “Surfin’ USA”, as you get ready for a short trip to Hawaii’s North Shore to experience some of the world’s greatest waves!!


Our partnership with Hawaii’s preeminent tour company, Roberts Hawaii (with over 70 years of experience ) offers   full service tours with transportation year ‘round to every beautiful locale that the Island has to offer – and they even feature Island hopping tours as well.  But this season, the main attraction is going to be the idyllic, pristine beaches of the North Shore and the breathtaking waves.


Oahu’s 112-mile stretch of white sand shoreline features the infamous Banzai Pipeline (The Hawaiian name for the Banzai Pipeline is "Ehukai Beach", which translates to “reddish-tinged water"), Waimea Beach, Sunset Beach, and Turtle Bay. Here, you can take part in kayaking, bodysurfing, bodyboarding, (for experienced swimmers only!) and hiking and biking – all available from the “Surf Bus” tour from Roberts Hawaii tours.  For the truly adventurous, surfing lessons are available.


However, whether or not you get onto a board yourself, you absolutely must witness the Super Bowl of surfing, the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing (occurring November through December). The world’s largest waves attract the greatest surfers from far-away destinations, and once you watch someone ride a 30-foot wave, you will become a convert for life.


Another highlight is trying out the local cuisine. From our own “plate lunch” (perfect after an exhausting morning of water sports) to gourmet world-class sushi, a hot malasada (a delectable Portuguese doughnut), to a shaved ice, a multitude of choices abounds. And, don’t forget about another must-do, an authentic Hawaiian luau at the Polynesian Cultural Center.


A fantastic way to visit and experience the entire North Shore (especially for first-time visitors) is The Grand Circle Island Tour – which will cover over 120 miles of beautiful sites, which includes Diamond Head, Exclusive Kahala Estates, Hanauma Bay, Halona "Blow Hole" Lookout, Nuuanu Pali Lookout, Byodo-In Temple, Chinaman's Hat, Mormon Temple, Kualoa Ranch (includes Legends and Legacy tram tour), North Shore surfing beaches, Waimea Bay, Pineapple Fields and the famous Dole Plantation. This way, you and your family will have a full day of seeing the North’s Shore’s main attractions!
