Kahala Location & Lifestyle Guide | Honolulu, Oahu

Kahala is conveniently located about 10 minutes east of Downtown Honolulu, Oahu and is known as the best neighborhood in Honolulu for a reason.

Scroll down or click the anchors below to learn more about the different aspects of the neighborhood.

-Shops, Dining, and Entertainment

Homes in Kahala tend to have bigger lots than other neighborhoods in Honolulu, mostly ranging from 9,000 sq ft to 20,000 sq ft. These properties go for a minimum of $1.5 Million for just the land and can easily range upwards of $20 Million. While there are about 40 oceanfront lots, these are the mostly 1 acre estate lots, are easily the most expensive and don’t go on the market often.

Each of its 16 microhoods have something making it distinct, but the entire neighborhood has a pristine reputation and nearly 1,500 homes make up the Kahala area. All homes have access to the beaches in Kahala through 6 public access right-of-ways.

Click on the icon in the top left of the map above to view the various amenities available in the Kahala neighborhood.

Keeping with the theme, Wai’alae Country Club is a high-end country club on the east end of Kahala. Membership costs a nice penny per year, but brings many luxurious benefits and exclusive networking with some of Honolulu’s most affluent members.

Kahala is built for luxury and prestige balanced with a healthy lifestyle. Residents can always feel safe taking a stroll along the ample sidewalks to the grocery store, then setting off for a jog around the 4 mile base of Diamond Head. Afterwards, cool off by surfing along the shoreline - or going for a swim.

A Brief History of the Kahala Neighborhood of Oahu

The name “Kahala” comes from the Hawaiian name for Amberjack fish, common in the waters at the time.

Photo taken on Kahala Beach, Oahu

The native Hawaiian communities first started settling in the Kahala area around 1795. The area is fairly flat, making it ideal for raising livestock.

Kahala through the 1800s and early 1900s

Throughout the 1800s, much of the area that is now Kahala belonged to livestock farmers. After the Great Mahele land division in 1848, the land went to Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop. When she died, the land was transferred to the Bishop Estate Trust.

After World War I and towards the middle of the century, Kahala real estate was ‘found’ by those in the upper class. The flat landscape, rare on Oahu, made it appealing for homes. Farms started shutting down and mansions started popping up.

Kahala Into Modern Times

Doris Duke, a wealthy socialite of the early 20th century, was an early adopter just on the edge of Kahala in Diamond Head. Often called the “Richest girl in the world” during her lifespan, her Honolulu home completed construction in 1938 and today we know it as The Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art, Culture & Design. This former home in the most exclusive spot on Oahu reflects the luxury Kahala is known for.

In November 1954, the Waialae Shopping Center first opened its doors. Now known as the Kahala Mall, this iconic feature of Kahala has over 100 local shops, a Whole Foods Market, and multiple restaurants.

Throughout Kahala you can still find hints of its history. Farmers’ Road is one such example, hailing back to its days of being lined with cattle farms.

Public & Private Schools Near Kahala

As the most luxurious neighborhood in Hawaii, Kahala has access to great schools and is one of the best neighborhoods on Oahu to raise a family in.

Kahala Outdoor Activities - Parks & Beaches

Photo taken on Kahala Beach, Oahu

There are several beaches in the vicinity, but the closest to Kahala are Hunakai Beach and Kahala Beach. Almost all beaches in Hawaii must be accessible to the public, so there are 6 public right-of-ways allowing pedestrian and bike access to Hunakai Beach, shown by the purple lines on the map below. Hitting the surf on your day off is simple as a walk to the beach.

Wai'alae Beach Park is the only public beach park in the area with a restroom and shower. It has a gazebo with an eating area, making it perfect for outings with the family. There are about 30 public parking spaces at the park.

For those who prefer exclusivity over public access - Wai'alae Country Club is a high-end country club on the east end of Kahala. It hosts the Sony Open in Hawaii every year, a professional golf tournament on the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup Series. Membership costs a nice penny per year, but brings many luxurious benefits and exclusive networking opportunities with some of Honolulu's most affluent members.

On the other end of the spectrum, the Honolulu Marathon is one of the world's largest marathons. The finish line is in Kapiolani Regional Park, but the marathon weaves throughout multiple neighborhoods including Kahala.
