North Shore Town Highlight: Haleiwa

A town you can’t afford to miss while staying with us on the North Shore of Oahu is Haleiwa. The word Haleiwa means "house of the frigate bird" in Hawaiian. Haleiwa, pronounced hah-lay-EE-wah is a historical surf town that's about a 25 minute drive from Turtle Bay Resort.

The charming community dates back to the 1900s and was developed to support the sugar plantation industry, which was the north shore’s main source of jobs in the day. Today the town’s architecture still resembles the early 1900s. In 1984 Haleiwa was designated a State Historic, Cultural and Scenic District. Today, many of the early business families and their original business buildings still remain in Haleiwa.

1. Fresh and Refreshing Seasonal Fare
There are five places to dine within the hotel itself, and two additional resort choices within a few minutes walk. All seven restaurants, bistros and bars feature fresh-picked fruits from local farms, including Turtle Bay’s own farm, and fresh-caught seafood selected by our chefs from the docks and fish markets along the North Shore.
