Diamond Head is one of the most famous vulcanic craters in the world. It was named by British sailors in the 17th century because of the shining of the volcanic rocks.

The crater is located on the southest of Waikiki, right on the seacoast. There is only one stand on the bottom of the crater where you can pay for the entrance and where you can get a brochure about the place.

Also the only restroom is here, there is none on the top and there is a long way up there, so you should use this one, in case.

The place is very popular both among tourists and locals, for obvious reasons. The view from the top of the crater is spectacular both on Waikiki and the Pacific. You should get binoculars as well to enjoy it even better. You can also observe the whales from up there, you will surely love the experience.

Address:
Waikīkī, HI, USA

Price:
$1 per person to walk up
$5 per car
