Beautiful and crowded

incredible hike and views but too much too crowded. We went early but I would get there as soon as it opens to avoid the crowds.

The hike from the parking lot and back is about 1.5-2 hours. It is doable with kids, but they may get tired from the many steps. The view is worth it, though. Take plenty of water with you.

Glad I made it to the top! Found the last part challenging, especially in the heat! Spectacular view of Waikiki area made it worth it! Be sure to go early and bring lots of water!

We had intended to go at sunrise and it was pretty dumb to have gone in the middle of the day, but as anyone with kids knows, sometimes you just go when you can get it all together. It was bloody hot! BUT, we... More

Climbed the many steps of Diamond Head and was amazed at the spectacular view from the top. Wasn't planning to go to Diamond Head that day as was in flip flops but made it to the top. The view of ocean and surrounding area was just amazing.

It was a challenge for me, a 67 year-old, to clime up there, but I did it! The scenery was spectacular and worth the climb.
