Set out for one of Oahu's most iconic hikes as you make the 0.7-mile (1.12-km) trek to the top of Diamond Head crater. Enjoy the walk as you climb up staircases and through tunnels, then be rewarded for your hard work with spectacular views over Waikiki and Oahu's southern coastline.
Ride in air-conditioned comfort from your hotel to the trailhead. This volcanic cone is one of the defining natural features near Waikiki, and a US State Monument. Grab your bottle of water, tighten your shoelaces, and start the walk through the dry brush at the base of the crater. The hike begins with an easy, paved walking path and gets gradually steeper, but there are plenty of opportunities to stop, catch your breath, and take in the scenery along the way.
Climb up rock pathways and staircases built into the side of the crater as you approach the old military observation post in a concrete room near the top. Peer out the windows for a glimpse of the aquamarine sea, then continue on for the final, short leg to the viewing deck.
From the top, incredible, postcard-perfect vistas stretch out around you. The hotels of Waikiki and the Honolulu skyline in one direction, the crashing surf and beaches below, and the lush and verdant tropical hillsides of the island's interior at your back. Feel the sea breeze and spend some time taking it all in before descending back to your waiting coach.
