Welcome to Portlock, Oahu
Community with breathtaking views, spacious properties, and impeccable privacy
Perched on the edge of Koko Head in East Honolulu is Portlock, a charming neighborhood with a vast amount of space and unbelievable views of Hawaii. Very much the hidden gem of Oahu, the tucked-away community is a suburban one. The coastal area comprises private luxury homes boasting picturesque oceanfront views and amazing architecture. You’ll find lots of pools, palm trees, and decked out patios made for easy, comfortable living. A prestigious place to plant roots, Portlock is spectacular for more reasons than one.
Residents adore that the homes in Portlock are atop massive lot and parcel sizes, offering a lot of space to run, play, and entertain guests. From some hillside homes, you can even see sea life, like dolphins and turtles! There is a serene sense of exclusivity and privacy, yet the community is inviting to all who become part of it. There are several ocean access paths, so paddleboarding, kayaking, snorkeling, and ambling down the beach is a big piece of the lifestyle here in Portlock. It’s only a 15-minute drive from Honolulu, but there’s no shortage of schools
(Koko Head Elementary School consistently ranks in the Top 5 of Honolulu Magazine), restaurants, shopping, golf courses, and marinas nearby.
The local eats in Portlock are spectacular. Bright umbrellas and wooden chairs greet guests at Roy’s Hawaii Kai
, a high-end chain serving chef Roy Yamaguchi's Hawaiian fusion fare — every entree grilled to perfection. The best waterfront sports spot for watching games with a cold draft beer and casual American and globally inspired fare is Liko’s Tap & Table
. At Moena Cafe
, Hawaiian breakfast, brunch, and lunch is served on mouthwatering plates. Kona Brewing Company
, an iconic nationally-known name, offers a great craft beer selection and gastropub plates right in town.
The nautical neighborhood is home to many outdoor adventures. Sandy’s Beach Park
is known for its powerful shore breaks and drop-dead gorgeous views. If you’re looking for a good workout, Koko Crater Trail
is a steep hike up an abandoned railroad track with incredible ocean and city views. Hanauma Bay State Park
’s curvaceous beach is great for snorkeling, especially because of its abundance of sea turtles and 400-some species of fish. For a fabulous sunset, head to the landmark China Walls, a landmark where you can dive from into the clear ocean water.
