I took my friend to see Diamond Head crater. It was a hot day and we were surprised by the inside. Views are great but the inside of the crater was green and park like. Not like the craters on The Big Island that are younger and wilder.

There are many steep stairs so if that's a problem do not attempt this. However, if you like to hike, the view and experience is wonderful.

If you like history and hiking, this is the excursion for you! Don't miss this historic walk up the inside of a crater to the bunkers and look out over the Pacific. You can even purchase a t-shirt that says "I hiked the Diamond Head!"

Very long walk in a rather short distance. Take water and take your time the view is worth it. Take breaks and don't be in a hurry and you can make it.

The views are well worth the challenging climb. Go before 8am to miss the heat. Wear good shoes and take a camera. Rainbow visible the day we hiked Diamin Head

OK, I consider myself pretty intellegent but I did not realize that we parked inside the crator. I thought we were walking up the hill to look over into the crator. Imagine my surprise when I got to the top and saw the ocean. I guess everybody has their "duh" moments. The walk left me huffing and puffing a little... More

I was looking forward to being able to do some walking in the Diamond Head area, but upon arriving by car, found there was no where to park as the totally inadequate car park was full and cars were being turned away.

After visiting colleges, my family was looking for something to do with our afternoon before our flight to another island that night. We decided to spend our time at Diamond Head State Park and we were not disappointed. The views are incredible and the park is easily accessible. It was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

I've visited this place in December 2014. It was a beautiful day. It took us 45 mins to back to where we start. Great view and great exercise it was! I would love to go back again.

A lot of fine and great views for me. The kids were not into the climbing but I can't blame them as it was a long hike and hot. You can drive up quite a bit.
