One of the most iconic symbols of Waikiki is the famous diamond Head volcanic Mountain seen on many postcards and pictures that symbolize Honolulu. One of the most memorable things to do while here in Waikiki his to take an early morning hike to the top of the Diamond Head for a picturesque view of Waikiki and the surrounding area. During the summer months it’s best to do this around 7 in the morning to avoid the hot summer days and the hot midday Sun. You can take the city bus, a short Uber ride or drive your car to the back of the mountain for your 40 minute hike one way. You also want to remember to take sunscreen and bottled water. So grab your camera and head up to the mountain.
