Heʻeia is a census-designated place comprising several neighborhoods located in the City & County of Honolulu and the Koʻolaupoko District on the Island of Oʻahu north of Kāneʻohe. In Hawaiian the words heʻe ʻia mean washed away, alluding to a victory achieved by the populace against others from leeward Oʻahu, aided by a tsunami that washed the combatants off the shore.[citation needed]

Heʻeia includes Haʻikū Valley and Heʻeia Kea. The population was 4,944 at the 2000 census. The area is almost entirely one of homes and apartments. Parts of Heʻeia lie along Kāneʻohe Bay, but public access is non-existent owing to private ownership of the property behind the shore.

Notable in the Heʻeia area are:

Heʻeia Kea is a community and small, undeveloped valley separated from Heʻeia by Heʻeia Marsh and Kealohi Point. Heʻeia Kea Small Boat Harbor, the only public pier and boat ramp on Kāneʻohe Bay, is found here. Several fishponds have been restored in recent years. Although fishponds were developed on most of the islands, the largest concentrations were found in Keʻehi Lagoon, Pearl Harbor, and Kāneʻohe Bay on Oʻahu.

The U.S. postal code for Heʻeia and Heʻeia Kea is the same as for Kāneʻohe: 96744.
