A volcanic eruption created Black Point, called Kupikipikio by the ancient Hawaiians. Famed Hawaiian Olympic swimmer Duke Kahanamoku once called this area home. Today, the area is home to a gated community with mansions that date back to the early 1920s. The beach in front of the development is private, but other public beaches are nearby. Black Point is on the eastern end of Diamond Head in the Kahala area.
