HAWAII.

Diamond Head.

By Blair Gamblin

You won’t be disappointed with the views after this short hike.

Diamond Head
Oahu

The 760-foot tuff crater is one of Hawaii’s most famous landmarks and is easily accessible by a short drive or bus ride from most hotels in Waikiki. The steep path up is dotted with tunnels and old military bunkers. We were told it would take a few hours to ascend to the highest point, yet 20 minutes later we had reached the top, so the tour is relatively easy despite what the locals may think. The hike up is well worth the panoramic views of Waikiki and South Shore.
