Haleiwa or Haleʻiwa is a North Shore community and census-designated place (CDP) in the Waialua District of the island of Oʻahu, City and County of Honolulu. Haleʻiwa is located on Waialua Bay, the mouth of Anahulu Stream (also known as Anahulu River). A small boat harbor is located here, and the shore of the bay is surrounded by Haleʻiwa Beach Park (north side) and Haleʻiwa Aliʻi Beach Park (south side).
Further west from the center of town is Kaiaka State Recreation Area on Kiaka Point beside Kaiaka Bay. As of the 2010 census, the CDP had a population of 3,970. It is the largest commercial center on the North Shore of the island. Its old plantation town character is preserved in many of the buildings, making this a popular destination for tourists and residents alike, visiting surfing and diving sites along the north shore. The U.S. postal code for Haleʻiwa, including Kawailoa, is 96712.
Matsumoto's Shave Ice, a local island favorite, is located in Haleiwa town and sells Oahu's most popular shave ice. It has been open for over half a century now, and is open daily Monday to Sunday from 8:30AM to 6:00PM.
"Haleiwa Beach Park provides a plethora of possibilities including surfing lessons which are offered year round by Uncle Bryan's Sunset Suratt Surf School and the North Shore Surf Girls and is walking distance from shopping, eating and sightseeing in historic Haleiwa Town."
For shell collectors, Haleiwa Beach Park is an excellent place to find rare Hawaiian sunrise shells.
