The North Shore is known for its beautiful beaches, epic surf and friendly residents. But did you know it’s also known for its world famous shrimp trucks?
Here are three North Shore Oahu shrimp trucks and shacks we recommend you take a shrimp stop at next time you visit us at Turtle Bay. All of them are only about a five minute drive from your hotel room. You could also rent bikes from the North Shore Outpost located near our tennis courts if you do not have a vehicle.

Do you like it hot? It’s time to spice up your life with our signature Spicy Pineapple cocktail. This drink combines sweet and juicy Hawaiian pineapple with fiery jalapeno. The zesty concoction will have your taste buds dancing the tango. Not to mention, it’s packed with nutrients.
First of all, Pineapple is chock full of several health benefits due to its nutrient content. It contains bromelain, protein, carbohydrates, sugar, and soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. The vitamins in these fruits include vitamin A, vitamin C, beta-carotene, thiamin, vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid), vitamin B6, and folate, according to the USDA National Nutrient Database.
If you want to taste several unique flavors of the North Shore, you only need to drive 5-7 minutes from your hotel, Turtle Bay Resort to the town of Kahuku, where you will come across the roadside food court. Sure, it’s home to the famous Giovanni’s shrimp truck. But the food court is a smorgasbord of several other local food trucks and stands.
There are more than a dozen food vendors to choose from. Whatever you are craving, they have it. There’s tacos, pizza, Korean food, vegan, vegetarian, BBQ corn, Thai food, BBQ and Hawaiian food. There’s also a coffee cart, frozen yogurt, Acai bowls, shave ice and funnel cake.
