Jumping Rock at Wiamea Bay Park
The North Shore
Ditch the hustle of Waikiki and make your way to the North Shore for a real feel of local Hawaii. You can drive across the island and pass through the Dole pineapple plantation or (I recommend) take the long way around (Hwy 72 to 83) and tour the coast. You'll pass Chinaman's Hat and a myriad of local dive and snorkel spots. Check out Turtle Cove. Once on the North Shore make your way to Waimea Bay and jump of the rock. Make sure to bring your GoPro for plenty of action shots.
