Hawaii Kai

Just 12 miles east of downtown Honolulu, Hawaii Kai is Oahu’s first planned community. The former fishpond and wetland area was developed in the 1960s by famed industrialist Henry J. Kaiser, who envisioned an idyllic suburban community. Today, Hawaii Kai is home to more than 30,000 residents, and boasts a variety of retail and dining options, first-class schools, and ample recreational activities, including hiking, snorkeling, boating, jet skiing and more.


The Hawaii Kai Towne Center, anchored by Costco, is home to a variety of shops and restaurants, and hosts live entertainment and family-friendly events throughout the year. Neighboring Koko Marina includes Consolidated Theatres, 24-Hour Fitness and Kona Brewing Company, which overlooks the marina. With several nearby medical clinics—and even veterinary clinics—residents take comfort in knowing health care is close by.

Young families and empty-nesters alike are drawn to Hawaii Kai’s wide sidewalks, ample parks and recreation facilities, and its mix of low-maintenance condominiums and single-level homes alongside some of Oahu’s grandest luxury estates. Water-sports enthusiasts enjoy body-surfing at legendary Sandy Beach, snorkeling at world-famous Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and paddling, boating or kayaking at Maunalua Bay Beach Park. A pet-friendly community, the Hawaii Kai Dog Park and the nearby Makapu’u Point Trail are popular stops for residents and their four-legged companions.
