With an ideal location between Waikiki, Kaimuki and Diamond Head and only a few minutes from the beach, Kapahulu is Honolulu’s newest hotspot. This eclectic neighborhood ranges from historic cottages to plush hillside homes with ocean views, all anchored by Kapahulu Avenue’s low-rise Art Moderne-style shops and cafés. Relaxed and affordable, Kapahulu is perfect for young couples, families and retirees alike.
Once home to a windmill and roaming cattle, the Kapahulu neighborhood began to take shape in the early 1920s. Perhaps because of its proximity to the performance venues of Waikiki, many of the 20th-century’s most beloved Hawaiian entertainers have called Kapahulu home, such as Emma Veary, Sonny Kamahele, Vickie Rodrigues and Myrna English. Today’s Kapahulu residents include both long-timers and savvy newcomers, who are spurring growth in neighborhood businesses that cater to an increasingly diverse community. Even visitors to Hawaii are now wandering colorful Kapahulu Avenue, where antique stores and iconic Island-food holes-in-the-wall have made room for surf shops, polished restaurants and yoga studios. Along the eastern edge of the neighborhood, Monsarrat Avenue’s charming cafés are also on the rise.
Key attractions in and around Kapahulu include:
+ Waikiki Beach, only a few minutes’ drive from the neighborhood
+ Ala Wai Golf Course, one of the world’s most popular urban courses
+ Kapahulu Avenue and Monsarrat Avenue, lined with new and landmark shops and cafés
