Discover the Spirit of Hawaii From the Top of Diamond Head
Edging the eastern tip of Waikiki's coastline, Diamond Head State Monument is Hawaii's most recognized landmark. A part of a dormant volcano, this 475-acre U.S. State Monument features a legendary hike to the end of a 300,000-year-old crater with jaw-dropping views overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Honolulu. While the hike is relatively short in distance, it does offer challenging inclines that can be physically demanding, but worth the trek. Tours to Diamond Head occur daily, offering group hikes paired with biking or yoga. There are also picnic tables and concessions for dining with breathtaking views as your backdrop.
