O'ahu's North Shore is best known for its large, perfect winter waves and being a surfing mecca. Stretching for more than 7 miles, the beaches of the North Shore host the world’s premier surfing competitions during the peak winter months. North Shore real estate offers luxury living, oceanfront homes, and agricultural lots in a residential community with an island country-like setting, about an hour north of Honolulu. While most of the North Shore housing stock is single family, there is a small number of condominium townhome complexes. Prices range from $400,000 to several million dollars with one of the largest sales being $8 million plus. The median sales price for a single family home is just under $1 million.
