The best thing we did in Honolulu was hiking to the top of diamond head. Yes it's a relatively long hike, and yes it's exhausting since its uphill, but trust me, it's totally worth it! The view is fantastic! And the hike is great too, we need to workout everyday anyway. Beautiful place! Entrance fee is cheap like 5$ per vehicle. And there's a truck at the entrance selling pineapples and coconut. We bought one of each and they r fresh and delicious! The whole hiking is just amazing! Love

Pretty nice hike. I'll be honest I only went half way because I pull the back of my knee and fractured my toe last month, so my balance is off and I was feeling wobbly. I took the bus there #22 on kalakaua in Waikiki. Stops right across from hanauma bay. It's straight up hill with great views even from the halfway point. I'll go the whole way once I rehab my knee.

A good hike for all ages and fitness levels. Nice Asphalt/bitumen pathway all the way to the top, makes it easy to push the kids up and also has small areas to the side to catch your breath, take in the view and read information boards. On our way up there were many families with small children and elderly. Once you reach the top the views are phenomenal and definitely makes it worthwhile. There are also many trails to further explore and take more photos. Big thumbs up!!
