On my parents last day of vacation we went up to the north shore. There typically isn't any reason for us to go there since there are plenty of beaches closer to where we live and all of the shopping is in the more central area of the island. However, it is very beautiful there, there are more waterfalls and it feels more tropical to us. Definitely a sight worth seeing. We made a few stops along the way but made it to the very end of the road as far as you can go on the island. The end of the road is actually the start of the Kalalau Trail which is the 11 mile hike along the Na Pali Coast. We did the first quarter mile of the hike and got some great pictures!
