Haliewa for the day?

Up very late, planning our spare day tomorrow. Just wondering if it's worth taking The Bus to Haleiwa. Website says its the one route (52) from Ala Moana Centre. Drop off one mile from town. Either wait for the 76 or just walk. Est 2 hr trip each way. Is Haleiwa good enough to justify 4 hrs on a bus. We're not getting a car, so no need to suggest that, it's only $5 for each of us, and we will only veg out at Waikiki beach otherwise. Oh, and apart from eating and shave ice, what else is there to do, and on a Sunday?

Looking at the 10:14am up and the 5:15pm. Give us about 4.5hrs there.

If you go to Haleiwa, you should keep going around the island.

Transfer to the #55 in Haleiwa. It will take you around the island & back to Ala Moana Center.

You sound tired. I would not take the bus to Haleiwa. You need a car, and the North Shore area is very spread out.

Can we offer you options closer to Waikiki?

It takes about 5 hours to do the loop.

It takes 4 hours to go to Haleiwa & back.

So for adding one additional hour, you can take the loop.

$10 for 10 hrs entertainment. Not bad value. Put it off today, didn't know or trust reduced Sunday trading hours or bus routes, so we're having a crack at it on Tuesday. Thanks again.
