Haleiwa Beach Park is a decent beach in Haleiwa on the north shore but far from the best. It's a good size and offers a lot of parking in the main lot and on the side of the road but the water here can be a little murky due to the runoff from the river and harbor at the southern end. It's not bad, just don't expect crystal clear waters here.

The waves here are often pretty gentle so it can be good for kids but the sand is tends to be littered with various debris (tree branches, leaves, ocean junk, etc) so it never feels all that clean here. It's not gross or dirty, just not really what you'd want in a good Hawaiian beach.

Many of those concerns are made up by the amenities offered here which include bathrooms, showers, picnic areas, shady areas, a basketball court, volleyball court, and even a kids playground. All of these things, along with the harbor and various activity companies here make it a very popular beach.

It's a good place to learn how to surf, kayak, or try some stand up paddleboarding as well and you'll even find lessons and rentals available from a vendor or two near the parking lot.
