  • This hike is s little challenging, but very doable. It is hot- take sunscreen and water as with any place in Hawaii. The views on top are great.  more »
  • To be honest, we are more of an action/adventure family than a beech family. Did we cool down at the beech after? - yup. Getting there: There were tour buses that dropped you off inside. There was par...  more »
  • Really enjoyed the views from the first lookout on Diamond Head. - Cost: $5 per car or $1 per person for pedestrians. - Time to get to the top: Parking lot on the crater floor, the trail to the summit...  more »

  • Very beautiful place, looks like you’re in the desert. If you go there during the summer it’s very hot. Takes around an hour and half to complete the hike. At the top you can see the half of the island til the mountains. Absolutely worth it. This is a must in Oahu.
  • A great hike with a great view. It is a fairly popular trail, but the end is worth it. You can see all of the city and the beautiful ocean water. Many different angles to take pictures from. Would highly recommend!
  • Excellent hike, with one-of-a-kind views from the summit. $1 per person entrance or $5 parking per vehicle (including entrance for all passengers). Last hike starts at 4:30 pm to make sure you have enough time to return before the tunnel into the area is closed for the night. There is a food truck inside that sells water, hot dogs, and some cold treats.
  • Absolutely gorgeous!! Caught an uber to the entrance, got out, walked up, paid $1 and started the hike from there. It had rained the day before so it was still wet but definitely manageable. It was so beautiful at the top. We took the steep stairs up and then took the outside stairs back down. I would absolutely recommend this, just be careful on some of the stones I did see a couple people stumble but nobody fell.
  • Amazing hike! Not too long and just steep enough to get your day started :) we went there at around 11am and finished at 12pm. We should have went there a bit early as it was hard to find parking. But after the hike, a good swim will defiantly make your day more happier!
