Haleʻiwa Beach Park - Description

Sporty on the way - water sports paradise at Hale'iwa Beach

Hale'iwa Beach Park will make the hearts of water sports lovers beat faster in no time. Surfing, canoeing, boating or even diving are easily possible here and the conditions are perfect. Many visitors watch the colorful hustle and bustle on the beach while relaxing and enjoying the warm Hawaiian sun.

There are beaches on Oahu's North Shore that pose challenges even for surfing pros. Hale'iwa Beach on the North Shore is not one of them. The beach is a popular hangout for North Shore residents and is suitable for everyone to surf. The waves are ideal for both beginners and pros. Those with little experience stay close to shore and try to catch the smaller waves, while pros ride the powerful waves in the open ocean away from the shore. In Hale'iwa Beach Park there is the Kalili Surf Center, where kids from all over the island can learn to surf and those who want to try it out can rent equipment and go canoeing or stand-up paddling on the ocean. To one or the other visitor this building will seem strangely familiar, as if one had been there before. Fans of the Baywatch Hawaii series find themselves here at the filming location or, more precisely, the series' base of operations.

Off the coast at Hale'iwa Beach is a popular dive spot in Hawaii. Those who have their diving license could, for example, take a dive to Hale'iwa Trench. The beach offers spectacular views of the Waianae Mountains as well as Kaena Point and is a great place to get away from it all and enjoy a few hours of sun. Hale'iwa Beach is one of the most entertaining beaches, many visitors sit on their blankets and watch the hustle and bustle of various water sports enthusiasts. Likewise, there are many opportunities to spread out a relaxed picnic in the shade of the trees and enjoy delicacies that you have brought with you. For swimming, however, this place is rather unsuitable. There are many rocks and stones on the seabed, which in combination with strong currents quickly make swimming a dangerous affair. Visitors who want to swim here should always pay attention to the flags of the lifeguards or ask the beach attendant directly beforehand what the current conditions are.

Interesting information about the Hale'iwa Beach Park

Facilities for visitors:

In addition to countless water activities, the spacious Beach Park offers visitors the opportunity to use the provided picnic tables under the shady trees to eat the treats they have brought with them.

Lifeguards and beach attendants are on site daily from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. to monitor the active activity on the beach and intervene as needed.

Directions and parking:

Unfortunately, reaching the beach by bus is not that easy. From Waikiki, a single trip takes two to three hours and requires several transfers.

The approach by car is much easier and can be mastered from Waikiki in about 45 minutes. To get there, take the H1 and then the H2 in the direction of the North Shore until you see signs for Hale'iwa and, after the exit, Hale'iwa Beach. A large parking lot is available to visitors at the beach park, which can be used free of charge.

What we say

Only spot on the North Shore where surfing is possible at any level (from beginner to pro).
Our checklist & tips:
  • Enjoy the world famous and brightly colored Shave-Ice on the beach (best address: Matsumoto's)
  • A shopping spree through Haleiwa Town's numerous boutiques and surf stores
