Outdoor Activities

Check if they are open before you go. Not really a "hike" because its paved. Diamond Head is a leasure 30 - 40 min stroll up the crater. No shade so bring a hat and water. Hottest times are from 11-4pm so go before or after if possible.

Beautiful white sand beach. Hard to find parking. Be careful where you park. You might get towed if you park in front of a house. Don’t go when windy. Sand is very fine and gets everywhere.
