Ala Moana is one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in Honolulu thanks to its central, highly desirable location and continued development. Located conveniently between Ala Moana near Waikiki and downtown Honolulu, there is no shortage of things to do. Kaka'ako Waterfront Park offers some of the best surfing on the island at Point Panic. Enjoy the surf, or have a BBQ and watch the surfers and the sunset! There is also endless shopping in the area, whether you want unique local items from Ward Village Center or Salt, or if you are seeking luxury goods from Chanel to Gucci at the Ala Moana Center.
One block over is the Ala Moana area, a commercial, retail, and residential district, nestled between Waikiki and Kakaako, making it one of the most sought-after locations in Honolulu. The area features the Ala Moana Center, the largest open-air shopping mall in the U.S., which was newly renovated in 2015. Honolulu's crown jewel park, Ala Moana Regional Park is conveniently located across the street, and is one of the most popular places for locals and visitors alike to visit due to the multitude of outdoor recreational opportunities it offers in the heart of the city!
