Very lucky with weather, beautiful blue skies and warm weather. Found lovely cafe and had yummy breakfast. As small yacht owners, we would love to come back for a sail.

Great place to go with the family. Easy trip over on the ferry but bit of a steep hill when you arrive so you need to be mobile.

Went to the Diamond Head cafe and bar at the top of the road from the Diamond Head ferry and was blown away by the cute coffee shop with a fantastic little bar out back overlooking the local cricket field - would be great watching the cricket having a few quiet brews!
