The Quirkiest Town In Hawaii That You’ll Absolutely Love

The Hawaiian Islands are home to countless incredible towns, from tiny towns with less than 500 residents to those with thousands of residents that somehow still feel charming and quaint. And while all of these Hawaiian towns and cities are fantastic, there is no greater town than Haleiwa, a charming surfing community located on Oahu’s famous north shore.

Voted as the state’s favorite small town by HAWAII Magazine, Haleiwa seems like a world away from bustling Waikiki. This sleepy surfer town has a laid-back vibe and charming aesthetic, but also luxuries like killer beaches, art galleries galore, adorable shops, and stellar vacation rentals. It is also the quirkiest town you’ll find in Hawaii — perhaps due to its eclectic collection of shops and restaurants, or maybe it’s the plethora of street art you’ll find around every corner.
