Haleiwa Playground and Beach
Print Leave a comment
Haleiwa Beach (not to be confused with Haleiwa Alii Beach) is kind of an ugly area with a hideous-looking beige concrete pavilion that should really be knocked down. Its main advantage is that it has a full playground and a large dry grassy lawn with picnic tables and some gorgeous trees. The beach behind it, which is surrounded by dark trees and feels spooky, seems to be used mostly as an access point for surfers to enter the water. Some homeless people live here and it's not the safest feeling place, but it should be fine if there are other families at the playground.
If you're hungry, head over to Haleiwa town for some "grinds"! On your way you will pass by the shimmering Lokoea Pond, an ancient Hawaiian pond used to raise farmed fish.
A really gorgeous beach, Police Beach, is just two minutes north by car from here- enjoy the tidepools, rock spires, and the campground set of the TV show "Lost."

Haleiwa Beach Park is located at 62-449 Kamehameha Hwy, Haleiwa HI 96712. From the Joseph Leong Hwy heading south, take the first entrance to Haleiwa by turning right on Kamehameha Hwy. The park and beach are immediately on the right at Kahaiewai Pl. There's a mural at the entrance but no sign. There are restrooms at this park.
