Hau’ula is located at the north end of Oahu’s east coast. This town is about 1.9 miles long with over 90% of its space being unpopulated, offering a lush landscape comprised of beaches and mountains and showcasing a slow-paced community and artful culture.

Hauʻula also offers great hiking. Locals and visitors alike can enjoy the 2.5 mile Hauʻula Loop trail that wraps along the side of the mountain, providing great views of the coast and protecting reef. The trail head is also shared with the Ma'akau Gulch and the Ma'akau Ridge hikes.

The Hawaiian culture is still very much alive in this region, so if you wish to discover a little about the “real” Hawaii, Hau’ula might just be what you’re looking for. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a small list of the top activities, in or around Hau’ula according to feedback from our guests.
