Waialua, Oahu

Waialua is a small community on the North Shore of Oahu. In the town's center is the Waialua Sugar Mill, one last remnant of the town's plantation history. It is not in operation anymore since sugar isn't being grown here anymore, but some coffee, bananas and other diversified crops are being grown in this area on a small scale.

Nearby are a couple of shops, such as the North Shore Soap Factory (located inside the Sugar Mill), Farmer's Market, Waialua Coffee and Island X, selling island products. Mokuleia Beach Park, Kaiaka Bay Beach Park and Haleiwa Alii Beach Park are both located in the Waialua area.

There is a very sweet children's book set in Waialua, or rather at Mokuleia Beach, which is part of Waialua. It's called ‘Iwalani's Tree and came out in 2016

This is a wonderful community, especially if you have small children. We have a 3 year old daughter and there are a lot of children her age to play with. The people who live Waialua (that I have met) are very friendly. Plus, Waialua is nestled between the ocean and mountains! Can't beat that! Every day it's 80 and sunny pretty much! We love it here.
