The saucer shape crater known as Diamond Head was formed from a single volcanic explosion that took place 300,000 years ago. Today, this spot is a very popular Honolulu Attraction that draws visitors who come to enjoy the challenge of the hike to the summit and the spectacular views when they reach the top.
The hike to the summit of Diamond Head Crater is less than a mile, but it is quite a challenging hike. It’s a steep, uneven incline, and the final portion of the climb includes very steep stairs. The average visitor needs about two hours to complete the hike.
Once at the top, you will see bunkers and a lighthouse that was built in 1917. Of course, those Oahu Things to do will pale in comparison to the beautiful views of Oahu. If you’re lucky enough to enjoy this Waikiki Activity during the winter months, you may see humpback whales frolicking in the ocean.
