Arguably Hawaii's most well-known sight, Diamond Head Crater is more than just a famous Waikiki backdrop but also an entire attraction unto itself, featuring one of Oahu's best hikes for a panoramic view. From atop the 760-foot (231-meter) summit, visitors can gaze out from Koko Crater to the Honolulu skyline and down on Waikiki Beach, where surfers, paddlers, sailboats, and canoes all splash through the tropical waters.

E Bike Ride up Diamondhead
Ryan was terrific!! He was very knowledgeable about stops throughout the whole excursion. It was a great sightseeing tour, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to see Diamondhead in a very unique way.

The hike at Diamond Head was a little more than we expected, but in the end it was well worth it. The Makapu lighthouse hike was also well worth it too. The views were incredible at both hikes. Would definitely recommend to any body, just beware to have good hiking shoes and water.

Our driver was the best! Our experiences with this tour were amazing and beautiful. The Diamond Head hike is a must do for the sunrise. Our tour of island was absolutely worth every minute.
