Diamond Head is Oahu’s and perhaps Hawaii’s most famous landmark. Its neighborhood provides a bounty of nature’s amenities: the vast Pacific Ocean, spectacular views, stately trees, a gorgeous state park and of course, the majesty that is Diamond Head itself. Located at the east end of Waikiki, the Diamond Head area has a unique calmness and serenity enjoyed by all who visit or call it home. It is one of Hawaii’s most desirable suburbs, and the ultimate in Honolulu addresses. Diamond Head is an upscale community with residences ranging from quaint- yet- elegant cottages, small condos, executive homes, picturesque estates and luxury oceanfront properties. At the base of Diamond Head is Honolulu’s “Gold Coast,” at the end of Kalakaua Avenue, across from Queen Kapiolani Regional Park. Elegant homes with Asian or Mediterranean architectural styles as well as charming bungalows and contemporary residences contribute to the uniqueness and allure of this cozy neighborhood. The Gold Coast is host to a few hotels, restaurants and private clubs and some of the best ocean- front condos on Oahu. The calm waters at their doorsteps offer exceptional swimming, diving, and several surf breaks.Queen Kapiolani Regional Park is perfect for walking, jogging, and a variety of activities such as yoga or Tai Chi or tennis and embraces both the Diamond Head and Gold Coast neighborhoods. It is the finish line for the world renowned Honolulu Marathon, site of several ethnic festivals and the place where a variety of parades conclude their pageantry.
