Diamond Head, Oahu: 34 reviews and 69 photos

  The view from atop Diamond Head is spectacular
by AKtravelers

If you're looking for a way to get your blood flowing on a lazy vacation morning in Honolulu, take a walk up Diamond Head. Bring sturdy shoes -- though there are lots of stairs on the trek, the path to the stairs could be ankle-twisting. Also bring sunscreen, as the path is mostly exposed. But other than that, almost anyone can make it to the top for some spectacular views of Waikiki, downtown Honolulu and the eastern part of Oahu. History buffs will enjoy the chance to look out of World War II era bunkers that wee used to spot enemy ships and planes.
