Though changing rapidly with new developments, rustic Haleiwa will maintain its slow pace and bohemian vibe as long as it is served solely by the two-lane road that traverses the tiny town. Quaint boutiques selling locally made goods, surf shops galore, art galleries and hole-in-the-wall eateries, many housed in historic buildings, give Haleiwa its country-style charm.
