Diamond Head Galleria

Diamond Head is among the most famous landmarks in the world. The ocean front is known for world class surfing and windsurfing. Although adjacent to Waikiki, much of the rim and slopes are in a fairly natural state, with sweeping vistas, rugged ravines and flowing grasslands. The crater's interior is a popular tourist attraction and affords a grueling two mile hike through scrub brush, steep inclines and 100 degree temperatures. Unfortunately, the cater interior is not very photogenic, especially the remnants of the military occupation. However, there are photo opportunities in abundance on the rim and slopes.

The slopes both above and below the Diamond Head Road and Lighthouse are not for the faint of heart. Do not walk these trails alone, especially late afternoons, weekends and holidays. Never bring children on the trails. There is great beauty in this place but, unfortunately, it's also a nest of deviant activities.
