We can’t help it, we love Haleiwa and if you’ve been there before, we know you love it too! We aren’t the only ones, Surfer Magazine named Haleiwa the #1 Surf Town in the world. With sandy white beaches and legendary surf, it’s no surprise the quaint and historic town received such an honor. But it’s not just the surf that makes the town so special. Throw in the residents oozing aloha, one-of-a kind mom and pop shops, art galleries plus unique restaurants and you’ll see the whole amazing picture.
Here are seven steps to our idea of the perfect day in Haleiwa town. Make sure you bring your swimsuit and towel!

Turtle Bay is often visited by several different marine mammals and endangered species. Reading our name, you’d assume Turtle Bay is home to several sea turtles and it is. It’s most common for snorkelers and divers to see the honu (green sea turtle) in nearshore waters. The honu are often spotted basking on shore or swimming and feeding in the water.
Please Be Respectful
When you do encounter one of these beautiful and peaceful creatures, be respectful. They are protected under federal law. Do not harass or touch them. Keep at least 15 feet away from them and don’t block their access either to or from the ocean. When you do spot one on shore, avoid making loud noises and do not use flash photography.
