The North Shore


Initial impressions of Haleiwa are of a relaxed, laid back surf town, but dig a little deeper and you soon find its multi-layered appeal. Aloha and welcome to the North Shore of Oahu. Renowned for its legendary beaches, Haleiwa is a favorite refuge for Hawaii's residents and a must-see for visitors. Nowhere else on Oahu will you find quaint shops and cafes housed in plantation-era buildings less than five miles from world-famous surf spots.

"Dancers know that they cannot control what happens to them but they can control their attitude towards what happened to them. In that, they will be mastering change instead of letting change master them."

Haleiwa is in fact a hub of creative energy and endeavour, with a large number of art galleries dotted throughout its pretty streets, each offering the chance for visitors to pick up some authentic locally produced art for your home. Also to be found here are distinctive plantation-era buildings that hark back to the town’s past, while casual, understated restaurants serve local dishes using original recipes steeped in Hawaii’s culinary folklore. Not to mention the many nice drinking spots in the town. The only blot is the Present Rail Party holding back any progress for the benefit of the residents. Yes, it's the bread, Fred.
