Oahu Neighborhoods Near Hanauma Bay with Homes & Condos For Sale

One of the best things about living in East Oahu is the abundance of outdoor activities right on your doorstep. One of the premier destinations for locals and visitors alike is Hanauma Bay. Easy access, crystal-clear water, abundant sea life, and visitor-friendly amenities provide a unique experience that attracts over 1 million visitors each year, making it one of the most visited beaches in the State. For Hawaii residents, admission is free, just bring your Hawaii ID or driver’s license!

The snorkeling at Hanauma Bay is some of the best on Oahu. On an average day, you can see dozens of fish, sea-turtles, octopi, and eels – even squid and sharks on occasion. Outside the barrier reef brightly colored parrot fish and live coral abound. It’s an experience that never gets old!

Great Neighborhoods Near Hanauma Bay

Located within minutes of Hanauma Bay are the neighborhoods of Portlock, Hawaii Kai, Mariner’s Ridge, and Kalama Valley. These areas offer a wide variety of homes: comfortable condominiums below $500,000 to luxurious oceanfront villas in excess of $5M and everything in between.

In addition to Hanauma Bay, these neighborhoods are near shopping centers including Costco and fine dining at the Blue Water Grill, golf at Hawaii Kai Golf Course, equestrian activities at the Hawaii Kai Equestrian Center, and hiking at Mariner’s Ridge, Makapuu, and Koko Crater/Hawaii Kai Botanical Gardens.

Portlock

Portlock (containing the neighborhoods of Portlock, Triangle, and Koko Kai) boasts magnificent views, easy access to Moanalua Bay, beaches, large lots with lush lawns, and old trees and quiet streets. One of the most exclusive areas in the State of Hawaii, Portlock real estate has benefited from significant and steady historical appreciation. Here’s a gallery I created to showcase the oceanfront homes currently for sale in Portlock.
