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!

Really one of the best beach for fish watching. For snorkeling the waters in this inlet are even calm for small children. When you are on North Shore you have to be careful because most of the beaches can have "angry seas"

Beautiful spot to have a swim and snorkel. Very picturesque beach. We stopped here for a swim and it was so peaceful after the busy Waikiki Beach.

Nice big park on the water, plenty of open space, but there are a lot of much better spots in the area. Showers/change rooms closed for renovations but toilets open. I think they need a bulldozer renovation as the pavilion looks like it could come...More

This is a cute little town, kind of like the Byron Bay (Australia) of Hawaii. Stopped for refreshments on our way North, locals are super friendly and willing to talk to you about the area and even some chilled hidden places to hang out. If...More

This beach is just to the east of the harbor and is a good sandy beach and not too rough most of the time. There are restrooms, a basketball court as well as a playground area.
