Since 2011, when I dipped my toe into the world of solo travel with my first trip to Paris, I have had an insatiable appetite for exploring the world on my own. The freedom and the growing confidence with each solo trip is empowering and overflows into all aspects of my life.
The older I get, the more I gravitate toward the sea (and all water). There’s something about the water, sand, and a clear blue sky that has a meditative effect on me. I appreciate nature more now than I did in my 20s and 30s. This was why Hawaii gently twisted my arm to come and visit.
Oahu is a perfect destination for us solo travelers to immerse ourselves in nature. The sea, the mountains, the lush rainforests; there’s not only the beach and laid-back lifestyle, but the locals are friendly, too. The weather is amazing, and Oahu is a safe destination for solo travelers.

I love the North Shore, and Haleiwa is the center of this part of Oahu. The North Shore is the “real Oahu,” celebrating the surfing lifestyle.
You can easily spend a good part of the day in Haleiwa wandering in all the cool shops which sell everything from clothing to t-shirts, surfing gear, and home goods. Most of the shops are located right on Kamehameha Highway along a one-mile stretch. Much of that stretch has sidewalk, but part of the way does not.
