The month of February belongs to Hawaii Kai - one of Oahu’s premier communities. Hawaii Kai was largely developed by Henry Kaiser and Kaiser-Aetna around the Maunalua Kuapa (fishpond wall) Pond in the ‘50s. The Koko Marina was dredged around 1959, which transformed the shallow coastal inlet into a marine embayment, and residential tracts and marina channels followed in 1961.
Today, Hawaii Kai is a family-friendly community with easy and convenient access to many services and amenities such as: Costco, Safeway, Sandy Beach, Makapuʻu Lighthouse and Beach, Koko Crater Botanical Garden, the "From Here to Eternity" cove, Hanauma Bay, Sea Life Park, Hawaii Kai Golf Course, restaurants, fine dining such as Roy’s, movie complex, shopping centers, hiking trails, snorkeling, marina access and the H1. Immediately west of Hawaii Kai is the Honolulu neighborhood of Kuliouou and eastward from Hawaii Kai is the Koko Head area. South of Hawaii Kai is Maunalua Bay, and north are the Koʻolau Mountains.
