. : Historic Haleiwa Town
Oahu’s North Shore is the surfing capital of the world and the historic town of Haleiwa is the culmination of any North Shore trip. Haleiwa, pronounced hah-lay-EE-wah meaning “home of the Iwa bird”, is an old community that was rooted in the booming sugar industry of the early 1900s. In 1984 Haleiwa was designated a State Historic, Cultural and Scenic District. All new construction must adhere to stringent specifications to preserve the Territorial architecture of Haleiwa’s early sugar industry times.
