Passionate surfers should not miss Banzai Pipeline, a reef break off Sunset Beach notorious for giant waves. Waves grow to such heights that surfers can tube ride through the curls. Be warned that only very experienced surfers should attempt the waves at this destination, where the world's deadliest waves have killed several surfers and photographers. That said, even those without much interest in surfing can admire the action from the shore. Swim with caution and pay attention to the signs. Banzai Pipeline is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

  • The North Shore was experiencing exceptionally high waves when we visited and it was breathtaking to watch the surfers! Fun to be part of the cheering crowd! Remember your towel or chair to sit on...

  • For our visit, we watched. And the pile of surfers were having a great time riding some good waves. Sitting on the beach and watching made me want to surf again. I mean, I took a couple of lessons...
