The Diamond Head area, sought after for its location at the base of the Oahu's most famous landmark, offers an exceptional island lifestyle. Kapiolani Park, public beach parks including Queens Surf and Sans Souci Beach, the Waikiki Shell and resort hotels are all within walking distance.
Homes are generally in the $1,500,000 and up range, many with ocean views. The Gold Coast is a 1-mile stretch of oceanfront condominiums and co-operative apartments that is highly prized for its location along Kapiolani Park. Oceanfront Condominium and Co Operative apartments are priced from $600,000 and up.
Diamond Head is immediately adjacent to Kahala. The housing trends are very similar between these two neighborhoods.
The Kapiolani Park Bandstand includes events like the Royal Hawaiian Band performing on Sunday afternoon. At the Waikiki Shell, also located within Kapiolani Park, past performances have included super stars from Ella Fitzgerald to Basia, many of them performing with the Honolulu Symphony under the Hawaiian star lit skies. Kapiolani Park is the scene for the finish line of The Honolulu Marathon, an annual event attracting thousands of runners to Oahu.
Private beachfront clubs include the Outrigger Canoe Club and the Elks Club.
