Haleiwa      One of the more famous towns on Oahu's North Shore, Haleiwa is a must see stop while visiting Oahu. This ocean side town has   local shops to explore, where you can  find those unique souvenirs to take home from your vacation.

    Haleiwa is a good place to get a bite to eat or have dinner. A good beach to visit while here is Haleiwa Beach Park. There is ample parking and if you want a bit of seclusion you can go to the northwest end of the beach to  Puaena Point. For a bit of a treat, have some shaved ice at  Matsumoto’s or Aoki’s.

Laniakea      These green turtles (honu) at Laniakea come close into to shore to feed on the seaweed growing on the rocks. They allow people to swim in the water with them and they come on shore to bask in the sun. But, please do not disturb them for they are rare wild animals that belong to a threatened species.

     Laniakea Beach a.k.a. Lani's Beach or  “Turtle Beach” is not hard to find.  From the historic town of Haleiwa travel about 2 miles just before Pohaku Loa Way on  Kamehameha Highway. When you see lots of cars parked in the dirt on the right-hand side 'pull in !!!'. Across the street is Laniakea Beach.
