The view from the top of Diamond Head was spectacular! The weather was great, and I had a great view of both Waikiki and of the ocean.
Diamond Head can be reached from Waikiki using TheBus. Diamond Head is near Kapiolani Community College, and there are several bus lines going there. Of course, you can also take a taxi or drive there, although the buses that go through Waikiki are well maintained.
You can see the trail in the picture above. It is not that tough a walk, but I recommend wearing sneakers. I saw some people walking up wearing sandles or heels, and I was amazed that it was possible! I did see some people that needed to take frequent breaks. I walk about an hour every day, but if you don’t normally walk around, be sure to take it easy.
