Honolulu   |   November, 2010   |   Points of Interest & Things to Do

"We highly recommend climbing Diamond Head. Once you make your way to the summit you'll enjoy 360 views and trip-worthy photos. A couple of things to consider are the uneven trail, steep steps and narrow pathways--at one point you might even find yourself doing a little bit of crawling. It's a great workout getting to the top, and definitely well worth it. Once there, take in the gorgeous ocean views from Hawaii's most recognized landmark. Diamond Head (Le'ahi in Hawaiian, meaning "brow of the tuna" given the silhouette's resemblance) encompasses more than 475 acres. This broad, saucer-shaped crater was formed about 300,000 years ago. The 0.8 mile hike from trailhead to the summit is steep and slightly strenuous, gaining 560 feet as it ascends from the crater floor. Special Tips: Last entrance to hike the trail is at 4:30 p.m. The gates are locked at 6:00 p.m. daily and all visitors must be out of the park by this time. Allow 1.5 to 2 hours for your hike. Wear good walking shoes, bring water, and wear a hat and sunscreen."

"The most famous volcanic crater in the world is Diamond Head, located on the South-east Coast of O'ahu at the end of Waikiki overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It was originally named Laeahi by the ancient Hawaiians. The name meant "brow of the tuna" and looking at the silhouette of the crater from Waikiki, you can see the resemblance. The current name came was given to the crater by British sailors in the 1800's.The most famous volcanic crater in the world is Diamond Head, located on the South-east Coast of O'ahu at the end of Waikiki overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

KAT and WILL's Wedding

"This crater of an extinct volcano got its name when Western explorers mistook calcite crystals they found there for diamonds. The historic trail to the 761-foot summit starts inside the crater and is an easy, but steep, 45-minute hike to the top. Stay on the trail, wear appropriate footgear and sunscreen, take along water and bring a flashlight to light your way through the tunnels. Those who reach the summit are rewarded by a spectacular 360-degree view of O'ahu. The tunnel gates close promptly at 6p. Admission: USD1 per person, USD5 per vehicle."

"Diamond Head Park - great hike that is short, ending with fantastic view."

Whitney and Aaron's Wedding
Honolulu   |   August, 2007   |   Attraction

"Panoramas from this 760-foot extinct volcanic peak, once used as a military fortification, extend from Waikiki and Honolulu in one direction and out to Koko Head in the other, with surfers and windsurfers scattered like confetti on the cresting waves below. This 360-degree perspective is a great orientation for first-time visitors. On a clear day, look to your left past Koko Head to glimpse the outlines of the islands of Maui and Moloka'i. To enter the park from Waikiki, take Kalakaua Avenue east, turn left at Monsarrat Avenue, head a mile up the hill, and look for a sign on the right. Drive through the tunnel to the inside of the crater. The ¾-mi trail to the top begins at the parking lot. New lighting inside the summit tunnel and a spiral staircase eases the way, but be aware that the hike to the crater is a strenuous upward climb; if you aren't in the habit of getting much exercise, this might not be for you. Take bottled water with you to ensure that you stay hydrated under the tropical sun. To beat the heat and the crowds, rise early and make the hike before 8 AM. As you walk, note the color of the vegetation; if the mountain is brown, Honolulu has been without significant rain for a while; but if the trees and undergrowth glow green, it's the wet season when rare Hawaiian marsh plants revive on the floor of the crater. Keep an eye on your watch if you're there at day's end, because the gates close promptly at 6. COST: $1 per person, $5 per vehicle. OPEN: Daily 6-6."
