Haleiwa on the North Shore
Haleiwa was established by the missionaries, Rev. and Mrs. John Emerson, in 1832. In 1899 with the building of the Haleiwa Hotel and the O'ahu Railroad, the town began to grow and thrive. Today, this quaint town is the unconventional shoppers' dream for art, crafts, clothes, and surfing items.
There are breathtaking paintings by master seascape artist, Walfrido, featured at North Short Art Gallery. There is the Haleiwa Surf Museum and Strong Current Shop that specializes in longboards and surfboards designed by North Shore legends, Dick Brewer and Mike Diffenderfer.
