Beatiful and majestic views

Short hike along a rugged terrain. quite easy for those who hike/outdoorsy folks. Stop on the tope of the mountain and absorb the breath taking views. Well worth the hike.

This hike involves about 100 stairs and groping through a dark tunnel (short tunnel). There are bunkers left over from WWII The views are spectacular. And only a short drive from Waikiki. Lots of parking in the crater go early

The park is really inside Diamond Head; which is dead volcano. Your drive though a brief tunnel to get to it.

It takes about an hour if not in top shape. Switch-back trails, a mildly disorienting walk thru a tunnel & a magnificent 360 degree view when u get there. Do not miss it. U are not punishing your body, u r reminding it how valuable it is to you.

Hiking the trail to the top of Diamondhead was quite a workout as I was suffering from a cold at the time, but it was worth it. The views are breathtaking.

Lots of steps and walking. If you walk to the gate the entrance fee is $1. Be sure to have proper footwear, lots of water, sunscreen and a hat. If you aren't in great shape, you may want to take it really slow. :)

If you can make it up the over 100 steps to the top. You will be amazed at the 360 view on top. It's about 90 minutes up and 90 minutes up, unless you're athletic. You can do it in 1/2 hr up and down, The view is awesome and worth the huffing and puffing up hill. Ample parking if... More

I only drove through the parking lot twice. Just leaving a review to give people a heads up about the lack of parking. Go early so you can get a space. I read reviews before I left and not one mentioned an issue with parking. The lot was full when I went there at 2 different times. You can park... More
