We stopped to use the restroom -- and watch the setting sun.

We saw several outrigger canoes paddling in and there was a sailboat passing in front of the sun as it set. We also saw rainbows while we were there.

Beautiful!

The North Shore waves were up. Somewhere between 20 and 30 feet in places. The beach park was a convenient place to watch these offshore waves. The shore break was also large, making for a dangerous onshore situation for those who did not know what to do. A life guard was on duty to watch and warn. There was a spectacular back wash and rip tide. We liked that it was low key and accessible. At other times, in calmer conditions this could be a nice family beach. But not today.

Haleʻiwa Town & beach, Oahu Hawaii
Haleʻiwa is a historic town on Oahu’s North Shore. Worth a visit as is the nearby beach. The popular restaurant there is Joe’s Seafood. Don’t forget to get a photo at the town sign as you drive in and visit Kamehameha Highway Bridge.

North Shore...what can you say? Traffic bumper to bumper and parking almost non existent. But, once there, what a wonderful beach! Plenty of room to relax and the waves were great. Grandkids had a wonderful time. If you got too warm, plenty of locust trees to sit under. Close to downtown so you could hike around and see the community and all the restaurants and shops.

First off, not even the locals go to the true "haleiwa beach park" (the farthest east park in Haleiwa town) without 10 of their friends with them. The place marked on the map is not "Haleiwa beach park".

The park marked on the map is indeed good for picnics, a buddy of mine actually got married there. There is one small wave break for surfing on the west side of the park....but no one really swims here. If you want to swim, go to wiamia bay. This park is nice for sunsets and looking onto the wild mountains/beaches to your left (especially around dusk).

Remember, there are no private beaches in Hawaii. Go Explore!!!

I'm going to shout this: DO NOT LEAVE ANYTHING IN YOUR CAR THAT YOU WANT TO KEEP...it will be taken. The North Shore has had 489 car breaking and robberies since the last week in January...that's 83 per month for a population of under 20,000 people. There are no signs and no one says a thing. Credit cards, wallet, cameras, passports, money, anything of value DO NOT leave in your car or on your beach towel. Put them in the room safe...NOT THE TRUNK.

We went her a couple of times and the second visit we saw lots of sea turtles. The area is very clean and there wasn't a lot of people which is nice. There were lots of turtles on out second visit which was a real treat for us. Hopefully this is the case for anyone who visits.

It is fun to walk around the old town of Haleiwa. There are many buildings from the early 1900's. I was there on a Sunday and there was a long line of people buying rotisserie chickens being sold in a parking lot. They smelled wonderful!

We were cruisin’ the North coast, looking for some tubes, past Pipeline, past Jaws, past Sunset, past the big-wave Mecca of Waimea Bay - nothing. Then at Haleiwa we found them - perfectly formed six inch ankle-slappers.
Haleiwa Beach is so sweet. Almost utterly deserted, we parked as close as anyone could ever get to the water, strolled in and had a beautiful half hour, swimming in the perfect temperature, bouyant water.
It was our last day in Hawai’i, and we’d rented a Mini convertible (the perfect car for the day!) and cruised the island.
Simply loved it.
The rustic, rusted rose-free shower pipes even had water at exactly the right temperature, the utterly basic change room was twenty feet away.
As nice a day as anyone has ever had at a beach.
Perfection in simplicity.
Loved it.
