Oahu Real Estate Regions
Overview of Oahu | Real Estate Resource
Known as “The Gathering Place”, Oahu is the third largest Hawaiian island and is home to the majority of Hawaii’s varied population—a melting pot of east and west cultures rooted in the values and traditions of the Native Hawaiian people. It’s this essential contrast between the ancient and the modern that makes living on Oahu so enjoyable. The Oahu neighborhoods each have their own feel and character so getting to know them before making your homebuying decision is important.
Oahu is also home to world famous Waikiki and the world capital of surfing, the North Shore. Waikiki is the metropolitan hub of Oahu. Many high-end hotel resorts line the stunning Waikiki beach shoreline. It's been a popular tourist destination for many years, offering world class shopping and restaurants for you to savor.
The North Shore of Oahu is the direct opposite of Waikiki’s fast-paced lifestyle. It exudes a quiet and charming ambiance and is best known for its world famous surf spots and pro surf competition—including the Pipeline Pro. On the North Shore you’ll find the historical town of Haleiwa where both locals and tourists alike can enjoy the unique shopping and cuisine it offers.
