Rising 760 feet with a 3,520-foot crater, this landmark is nothing short of breathtaking. You'll be whisked up to the site in a shuttle before taking a self-guided tour of the famous Oahu trail. Enjoy an easy-to-moderate 30-minute hike up to the crater via a series of switchbacks and one steep staircase at the end. You'll then have 45 minutes of free time at the top to walk around the rim and take plenty of gorgeous snaps. You can even purchase a certificate for a small fee to prove that you made it.

Did you know

  • Its proper name is Lē‘ahi, which comes from the landmark’s resemblance to the forehead of the ahi fish as observed by the goddess Hi‘iaka. When this famous landmark was seen in the early 1800s by British sailors, they mistakenly believed the calcite crystals in its lava rocks to be diamonds, thus branding it with its long-lived nickname.
  • Diamond Head State Monument encompasses over 475 acres, including the interior and outer slopes of the crater.
