  • Amazing views and great hike. Make sure to arrive before 10:30 am or you will face the big crowds and might not be able to get in. Wear comfortable walking shoes, light clothes and tons of sunblock. You might also want to bring some cash to buy a shaved iced on your way back to your car. As far as activity level, this is medium to high. I had my 69 year old mom hike with us, but we did it at a lower pace than my teenage kids. My mom complained when we were 80% up the hike, but with a little push, we made it all the way up. She loved it and she was happy with the hike. I would not suggest you take a stroller, it will be a nightmare. By the way, once in a while you will get a kick out of the tourists wearing either high heels or pumps on the hikes. Its funny. If you are traveling by yourself and you want a good workout, I would suggest parking across the street by the Community College and hiking all the way up. You will pay the single person entry cost but its cheaper than the vehicle cost. Now, if you are traveling with more than one person, just pay the vehicle cost since it will be cheaper.

  • The best 40 minute hike in North America. Our family has been coming to Waikiki for over 40 years and all generations know Diamond Head is one of the first places you go in Waikiki. Second, is Teddy’s Bigger Burgers after the hike. The trail on the way to the top is packed with history, as you climb concrete stairs and windy pathways you can almost feel what it was like to be a soldier who wasn’t paying attention and let a squadron of Japanese Mitsubishi Zeros fly over and attack Pearl Harbour. The view those soldiers had was fantastic, from the top you can see for miles all around Oahu. You can see and hear planes for miles!!! Love coming here with the family.

  • Wonderful hike! If you pace yourself, bring water and aren't in a hurry it is very enjoyable. There are 2 tunnels, so if you have kiddos it might be good to prepare them for that. The view is spectacular and well worth the hike. The store has lots of goodies, with touristy prices. The hike is not okay for strollers or wheelchairs though. Take your time and Have Fun!

  • Really beautiful views of Honolulu & Hawaii Kai. The hike it’s pretty easy, they have railing the whole way. Old bunkers which used to House military equipment are everywhere and you can explore most of them. The lines are getting really long. Seems more like a ride at Disney land than a hike. If you don’t mind waiting in line and being stuck while you inch your way to the top, then this is a perfect hike for you! 5mile round trip from the top to the aloha gas station below on Monsarrat Ave.

  • Visited Diamond Head on our honeymoon... Had a great day exploring Diamond Head and climbing to the top. It was very warm on the day we visited but the views were more than worth the exertion and it's one of the top five places we visited whilst in Hawaii. Wear comfortable shoes, take water and enjoy the fab photos you'll take.
