Kaaawa is a small community and census-designated place (CDP) located in the windward district of Koolauloa, City & County of Honolulu on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, United States. As of the 2010 Census, the total population for Kaaawa was 1,379. In Hawaiian, kaaawa means "the wrasse (fish)". From the Hawaiian spelling Kaaawa it is seen that each a is pronounced separately and distinctly, set apart by the two okinas: or.Kaaawa is north of Kāneohe Bay, and the Pacific Ocean shore here is fronted by a broad fringing reef with a narrow, but quite inviting beach. The around-the-island-highway (Kamehameha Highway, State Rte. 83) and the houses and other buildings comprising the town, are confined to a relatively narrow belt along the coast. However, a long valley extends inland. Kaaawa Valley is part of Kualoa Ranch and used for various tourist activities as well as filming. Major films and TV series incorporating significant views of the valley include George of the Jungle, Jurassic Park and Lost.
