For those who cherish an ocean view, but don’t necessarily want to live in an oceanfront home, there are many ridges on Oahu to choose from. I know from personal past experience that the drive each day up the hill coming home is immediately offset by the rewarding views once you look out over the rest of the island below with the cool blue ocean surrounding all.
On the south-southeast side of Oahu convenient to the Honolulu financial district, I can think of at least a dozen ridge neighborhoods from Alewa Hts. all the way down the line to Kamehame Ridge. One that I would like to feature here is the very old and sought after neighborhood of Maunalani Hts. in the Diamond Head region.
