Diamond Head Crater

From Pearl Harbour we drove to the Diamond Head Crater at the far eastern end of the Waikiki coastline. The crater was formed about 300,000 years ago due to a volcanic eruption. It is only 0.8 miles and 560 feet of ascent but it’s a strenuous walk to the top in the heat of the day.

Path to Diamond Head

There was a steady flow of people up and down, some carrying the obligatory music speaker, playing R&B for everyone’s listening delight! The path is rocky but there are also steps and and tunnels to navigate.

Many Steps Along The Way


And Tunnels

The views from the top are fantastic and you can see the whole of Honolulu and Waikiki beach.

The Crater From The Air

Upon returning to the city, we walked for miles along the coastline and visited the marina.

There were no bars or restaurants at the marina, unfortunately, so we found an Italian restaurant back in the heart of the city and had pizza to end the day.
