Diamond Head is one of the most beautiful and famous craters in the world. When British sailors first saw it from a distance they thought about the crystals in the soil that they are diamonds, that's where the name came from.

It is a long tour to get up to Diamond Head, but my girlfriend and I enjoyed it very much. The crater is wonderful with it's varied flora, but the view to Honolulu and Waikiki beach was breathtaking. We spent the whole day there and couldn't get enough of it. If you want to take your beloved to a romantic walk, that is the one.

The crater is also a USA State Monument.
Don't worry, the volcano is not active for some 150.000 years.

Price:
$1 if on foot. Parking costs $5.

Opening Hours:
Every day from 6 AM to 6 PM.
