Weather
It was a bit overcast, but that didn’t deter anybody or prevent us from seeing the incredible views it still had to offer.

Difficulty Level
Compared to the Stairs of Doom at Koko Head this walk was very easy.  This is suitable for the whole family – as long as you don’t have an aversion to a few stairs (about 200).

History
The original Hawaiian name is Leahi.  Leahi means the ‘tuna fish’s brow’.  You never know when that might come in handy.

The crater was formed by an extinct volcano.  It’s been that way for more than 150,000 years, so don’t worry it’s well and truly dead and never going to erupt. 

How to get here:
We caught the #23 bus towards Diamond Head, and got off at the Diamond Head State Monument bus stop. — Ask your bus driver to let you know when you get there.

You will then need to walk up through the crater tunnel to reach the Diamond Head Trail.

Everything else
As always, wear good shoes (flip flops were once again a mistake), and because of the stairs maybe don’t wear a dress.

WORTH IT?
Yes!  This was a great day out and suitable for everyone of all ages, shapes and sizes.
