Great intro hike. Go early to avoid the heat.

Diamond Head hike is simply a must for everyone coming to Waikiki! Yes, it will be crowded, but yes, the views are worth it from the top! ** Pro tip-- once you get out of the tunnel, take the stairway to the LEFT, not the right. You end up at the same place, but it's a bit easier and more enjoyable…

Diamond Head is a short distance from Polynesian Hostel and offers amazing views of Waikiki and the South Shore of Oahu.

Easy-moderate hike with breathtaking views of Waikiki

Great short hike with amazing views! Also where most rescues occur. Wear hiking or tennis shoes, hat, sunscreen, bring a lot of water, and go in the afternoon to avoid the hot sun and lack of breeze in the mountains. Crowded hike, but afternoons are less crowded. $5 fee for cars, $1 for pedestrians…
