Take a drive out to the North Shore but instead of heading up to Haleiwa take a left and cruise on over to Waialua. Go as far as the road will take you and you’ll end up in a gorgeous and seemingly untouched part of Oahu.
Last weekend I felt the urge to wander out this way and took a few shots of the scenery. Look one way and take in pristine ocean views, look the other way and enjoy lush green mountains. There are a few different hikes in this area, including Kaena Point, which takes you out to a protected bird preserve. Check out more on the hike here.
