On the southeastern shore of Oahu, is the highly sought-after “Gold Coast” community of Diamond Head. The once active Landmark, and volcano turned crater earned its name when voyagers thought Diamonds were growing inside. Although that was soon proven false, the name and neighborhood prestige was here to stay.
As one of the most desirable and expensive places to live on Oahu, Diamond Head is home to only around 10,000 residents - making the exclusivity of the area more inviting to those who are in search of high-end living. Real estate options are diverse, offering everything from single-family homes, condos, beachside bungalows and exquisite mansions with unobstructed ocean views.
Locals will often describe Diamond Head as the perfect blend between big city living and the quiet tranquility of a North Shore town. Residents are able to enjoy shopping, dining and entertainment just around the corner in Waikiki, while also enjoying the solitude and laid-back nature of their own neighborhood. Adventurists quickly fall in love with nearby hiking spots, ocean sports, Kapiolani Park, and the quieter beaches at the end of Waikiki.
