Haleiwa Beach Park

Video

Description

A pleasant, sandy beach fronted by a grassy lawn, Haleiwa Beach Park is located just north of the small north shore town of Haleiwa and enjoys a nice view of Kaena Point. The sandy beach is relatively narrow and swimming is not great due to the rocky and shallow ocean bottom. However, this is a great beach park for picnics, and canoe paddlers frequent the waters as do kayakers and surfers paddling out to Puaena Point.

Great For

Picnics, swimming, sunbathing.

Highlights

When you reach Haleiwa and cross over the famed Rainbow Bridge above the Anahulu River you have passed through the “gateway to the north shore.” The river, with beach parks on both sides, flows alongside Haleiwa Harbor. Haleiwa means “House of the frigate bird.”
