K?ne?ohe is a census-designated place (CDP) included in the City and County of Honolulu and located in Hawai?i state District of Ko?olaupoko on the island of O?ahu. In the Hawaiian language, k?ne ?ohe means "bamboo man". According to an ancient Hawaiian story a local woman compared her husband's cruelty to the sharp edge of cutting bamboo; thus the place was named K?ne?ohe or "Bamboo man". The population was 34,597 at the 2010 census. K?ne?ohe is the largest of several communities along K?ne?ohe Bay and one of the two largest residential communities on the windward side of O?ahu (the other is Kailua). The commercial center of the town is spread mostly along Kamehameha Highway.

From ancient times, K?ne?ohe was important as an agricultural area, owing to an abundance of rainfall. Today, K?ne?ohe is mostly a residential community, with very little agriculture in evidence. The only commercial crop of any consequence in the area is banana.

Features of note are Ho?omaluhia Botanical Garden and the new Hawai?i National Veterans Cemetery. Access to K?ne?ohe Bay is mainly from the public pier and boat ramp located at nearby He?eia Kea. Access to Coconut Island (restricted) is from the state pier off Lilipuna Road. Marine Corps Base Hawaii lies across the south end of K?ne?ohe Bay from the central part of K?ne?ohe, although the town stretches along K?ne?ohe Bay Drive to the base perimeter.

The ZIP code for Kaneohe is 96744.

There are three golf courses in K?ne?ohe: Pali Golf Course (public), Ko?olau Golf Club (privately owned but open to the public), and Bayview Golf Park (privately owned but open to the public).
