Neighborhood of the Month: Kaka‘ako

From your neighborhood experts at Locations.



Published:

Nestled between Waikīkī and Downtown is Honolulu’s hottest place to be: Kaka’ako. Once prized by Native Hawaiians for its rich salt and fish ponds, the neighborhood gave way to burgeoning industries in the 1950s. Today, Kaka’ako is experiencing a cultural renaissance decades in the making.

 

The community boasts a world-class collection of homes and a vibrant ambience bustling with creativity, the latest trends and an entrepreneurial spirit that welcomes both kama‘āina and visitors. The Kaka’ako area has many layers to be experienced: Keiki can explore the Children’s Discovery Center along the waterfront park, while foodies looking to experience new tastes can head a few blocks west to SALT. From the Honolulu Museum of Art to the Blaisdell Center to Ward Village Shops, Kaka’ako residents can get their fix of art, music, entertainment and shopping, day or night.

 

Throughout the week, residents of all ages enjoy easy access to farmer’s markets, movie nights and seasonal activities. For those looking to slow things down a bit, luxury condos with the finest of amenities (hello, infinity pools!) are certain to make retirement feel like a permanent holiday.
