Our flight from pueblo to hayward was routine except for the last 5 minutes. Oakland approach clrd us for the localizer 28L. About 4 mi out on the approach we had the runway in sight so approach handed us off to hayward tower. The tower was very busy, and by this time we had traffic at our 12, 1, and 10 O'clock positions, so we went around, missing the 10 O'clock traffic by 200-300'. We finally established contact with hayward tower on a downwind leg for 28L. If the tower and approach control were better coordinated, this situation would not have occurred.
