American Restaurant

“Actually not my favorite, but lots of people love it. It is very close to the cottage, offers fresh baked goods, breakfast sandwiches, plate lunches, salads and more. The layout is awful, you have to wait in line to order while people have to squeeze by you to get into the shop to get their drinks and other items before squeezing back past you to get to the back of the line. Still it is like a right of passage on the North Shore and their malsadas are delicious.”

Surf Spot
“Unreal! We saw surfers rocking 40' waves! Amazing. DO NOT TRY TO SWIM HERE UNLESS YOU ARE INSANE OR A PROFESSIONAL! NO KIDS SHOULD BE ANYWHERE NEAR THIS WATER WITHOUT A TIGHT LEASH. THE RIPTIDE PULL GROWN MEN FROM THEIR FEET. Go to Turtle Bay just up the street for a swimming and family fun.”

Natural Feature
“This is a scenic walk to a waterfall. It's a relatively easy hike, at 3/4 of a mile. Should you choose to skip the walk, you can take the trolley. Entrance fees vary but are generally under $20. It's best to arrive by 2:30 PM, as the park closes early and you want to allow yourself time to walk up there and enjoy the waterfall. Bring mosquito repellent! It's right next to Waimea Beach, so I like to go relax there and catch the sunset after the falls.”

“This is the place we go for birthdays, holidays and WCT victories. It is also where we go when we don't want to sit in Haleiwa traffic which get's backed up after every beautiful beach day and can take up to 50 minutes to travel 7 miles. Lei Leis has a fun atmosphere, very friendly staff and the food is great too. Only drawback is it is expensive but definitely worth an occasional splurge. The seafood cobb, the seafood scampi, the grilled ahi, the ribs and the peppered New York are my families favorites.”
