In Hawaiian the words hee ia mean "washed away", alluding to a victory achieved by the populace against others from leeward Oahu, aided by a tsunami that washed the combatants off the shore.

Heeia includes Haikū Valley and Heeia Kea. The population was 4,963 at the 2010 census. The area is almost entirely one of homes and apartments. Parts of Heeia lie along Kāneohe Bay, but public access is non-existent owing to private ownership of the property behind the shore.
