In the 1960s, Henry J. Kaiser dreamed of creating a California marina-style community and began dredging the area of the Maunalua fishpond and Kuapa wetlands. The result was the transformation of Hawaii Kai from a “country area” used for farming into one of the most affluent communities on Oahu. Hawaii Kai is considered one of the premier suburban areas of the island and includes single-family residences, townhomes and condominiums. West Marina is the neighborhood in Hawaii Kai in direct vicinity to Koko Marina, from which it gets its name. The marina area itself is surrounded by a variety of restaurants and other services including supermarkets, fitness centers, and even medical facilities so that the 12-mile trek to downtown Honolulu is rarely necessary for residents. There is also a movie theatre, ample playgrounds, and nearby golf courses and tennis courts available for recreational use. For outdoor and water sports, Maunaloa Bay is frequented by residents and visitors alike for water skiing, boating, and canoe paddling. Additionally, Hanauma Bay—a nature preserve which remains one of the top attractions on Oahu—is just a short drive up the road. West Marina is part of the Kaiser complex with several elementary schools and Niu Valley Middle School feeding into Kaiser High School.
