Why I love Haleiwa...

I am not a surfer..I have done it on camera for travel shows...but I am not the one in my family that packs a board in the car and heads out everytime there is a swell...I leave that to my brother..but even if you don't surf you can still have a GREAT appreciation for the North Shore..and especially Haleiwa.  Growing up in Pearl City Haleiwa was not as far for me..and it always felt like I was truly away from the city..just a little rambling town with cool little shops and funky looking people..and the ocean.  I love eating at Haleiwa Joe's I would meet my friend Nalani Choy there for lunch when she used to live in Haleiwa.  The pizza's were fresh and HUGE and the salads to DIE for. Of course Matsumoto's Shave Ice is also in Haleiwa..they are 58 years old this year..which makes them 8 years older then the actual STATE of Hawaii..and they are still going strong!

After the highway by-passing Haleiwa was built a lot of local people thought Haleiwa wouldn't make it, but it has, and will continue to because of the strong community that supports the area. If you visit O'ahu come on down to the North Shore..walk along the little stores, and help keep Haleiwa the charming sleepy beach town it is. And dont forget to wish Matsumoto's a Happy 58th...I am sure they will appreciate it!
