Diamond Head

If you remembered to pack your walking shoes and are feeling up for a hike, head out for a climb of Diamond Head, part of the Honolulu Volcanic Series. Once home to Hawaii's first military reservation, Diamond Head is now a state monument attracting droves of tourists each day. Although the hike to the top is not listed as strenuous, there is plenty of uphill climbing and three sets of steep stairs between you and the rim. Once to the top though, you'll be rewarded with breathtaking views of Waikiki and the sparkling waters of the Pacific. Due to its popularity, it is best to start your hike early in the morning when you won't have to contend with crowds on your way up the stairs. And no matter what time you visit, don't forget water and sunscreen.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it! Buy Miu Miu

I've always wanted to go to Wakiki. What a fun vacation to do with your hubby! The water and the island look so beautiful, something I would love to experience. I'm trying to save up right now for a fun trip, and Wakiki might just be the place!

I love how the island of Oahu offers a mix of urban, big-city attractions and secluded natural beauty all within close proximity of each other. Between the snorkeling, the mountain climbing and all the fun things to do in Waikiki, Oahu definitely seems to be where it’s at for the ultimate Hawaiian adventure.
