Haleiwa "House of the Iwa" once named "Kawailoa" a historical Hawaiian Kalo and fishing town, Haleiwa has adopted the surf culture of the North Shore on O'ahu.
Hawaiian royalty has graced sunny Hale’iwa shores enjoying the Anahulu River during summer leisure. Hale’iwa shores are known for it’s beauty above and below a caressing “Nalu” (wave). One can easily be fulfilled with a surprise visit from a breathing “Honu” (turtle), a waving “Hihimanu” (eagle ray) or a simple gust of “Kamakani” (wind).
“Kala” (sun) Hawaiians revere the sun as a life force that connects all. A gazing paddle toward the fading sun will give you the sense of the harmony that persists in this simple ocean life. With a turning stroll as the nights fall, you can feel the arrival of a twinkled silence while you silhouette the dawn. Paddling a Wa’a is a worthy experience one must connect with while here in the islands. Enjoy the island’s beautiful sunset by sea!!
