Beyond BYU–Hawaii

The Beautiful Community of Laie

Historically known as a place of refuge, the quiet community of Laie lies at the edge of the ocean, against a backdrop of green mountains and misty valleys. The town basks in abundant sun, while cooling trade winds and the gentle sound of lapping tides complete an atmosphere of peace and tranquility. Residents are warm and welcoming, always vigilant for one another’s well-being. Many have close ties to the University; students and professors will often find each other in the aisles of the local supermarket or at the beach. Local amenities within walking distance of campus include a shopping center, restaurants, a movie theater, and easy access to Hukilau and Pounders beaches. Laie is also within convenient proximity to the world-famous beaches of the North Shore, including Sunset Beach, Shark’s Cove, Waimea Bay, and Ehukai Beach, home of the “Banzai Pipeline.”

BYU–Hawaii is an integral part of the community in Laie, Oahu, which includes several other LDS Church-affiliated entities:
