A Day in Diamond Head

Share Button

Diamond Head is one of the most spectacular neighborhoods on Oahu, boasting incredible pristine white sandy beaches. The homes in Diamond Head are some of the most coveted real estate in Honolulu and are typically more expensive than those in neighboring Kahala on a land per square footage basis (Kahala is sometimes referred to as the Beverly Hills of Hawaii). The famed Gold Coast – made up of older condos, hanging on the ocean’s edge – is located at the base of Diamond Head, offering views like nowhere else in Honolulu.

Here is a video showing the Gold Coast condos’ proximity to the ocean:

I took a day, walking around Diamond Head, absorbing its beauty from many different angles and below you will find some of the impressions I encountered, starting early morning through sunset (past 7pm).
