    Hike the iconic Diamond Head Crater for incredible island views

    One of Hawaii's most iconic and recognizable natural formations, Diamond Head (known to locals as "Leahi") and its crater are a must-visit during your stay in Waikiki. Located just outside the city and a short ride from the resort, the summit of Diamond Head reaches more than 760 feet high and offers breathtaking panoramic views of Oahu's south coast and the city of Honolulu. Hike the scenic trail and climb the steep steps for once-in-a-lifetime views of Oahu.
