The North Shore of Oahu includes the communities of Haleiwa, Hauula, Kaaawa, Kahuku, Laie and Waialua and is on the northern coastline between Kaʻena Point and Kahuku Point. There are few people who do not think “epic surfing” when they hear the words “North Shore”. The North Shore is known for big surf during the winter months, drawing surfers from around the globe and some of the most renowned competitions in the world.
Hauula is considered a rural community, with a population of roughly 4,150 as of the last census. The area has a number of beaches including Hauula Beach Park, ʻAukai Beach Park, Kakela Beach Park and Mahakea Beach. Kaaawa is an even smaller community as you head north, with a population of approximately 1,380. Located north of Kaneohe and south of Hauula, the Kaaawa Valley is known for being one of the most filmed spots in Hawaii, including the film Jurassic Park.
Laie has a population of just over 6,100 and is rich with history. Once known as a haven for fugitives, Laie today is small town with strong ties to the Mormon Church. The fifth oldest Mormon Church in the world is located in Laie. Kahuku is considered the most northern point on Oahu and is just northwest of Laie and nearly one third of the size in terms of population. Kahuku is known for its outdoor adventures, including fishing and hiking.
Haleiwa is the busiest community on the North Shore as well as home to the biggest waves on the island. The quaint town is on the western side of this northern tip of Oahu and has a number of art galleries, unique boutiques and many fabulous restaurants and is a draw to tourists and residents alike. The laid back lifestyle is a draw for North Shore real estate and a far cry from the hustle and bustle of busy Waikiki and Honolulu.
Waialua is a quiet town just south of Haleiwa that was settled by Christian missionaries in the 1830s. Formerly a sugar mill town, the old mill is a currently a historic landmark in the middle of town. The North Shore takes its development seriously, moving forward to the future with a close eye on its heritage.
From a more rugged coastline on its eastern shores to the seven miles of beaches centered around the world’s best surf spots on its western edge, the North Shore displays the diverse landscape that exists in Hawaii and a lifestyle of which many are envious. The North Shore area of Oahu is made up of small, laid back communities. Real estate on the North Shore is driven by people seeking the spirit of Aloha.
