It took an hour to climb up to the summit but well worth the views. Although the hike is easy, I'd still recommend good walking shoes. It takes about an hour to walk up and half an hour to "roll" down. Great views of Waikiki...More

This is a must do when visiting Honolulu. We walked up the track and the view of Waikiki was totally worth it! Just amazing views. If you have a spare half day, do it! You won’t regret it.

It took me about an hour to get to the top. I would suggest wearing gym clothes and comfortable shoes. It was definitely a good workout for me, please have some water with you.

Walking up Diamond Head is not for someone who isn't in shape. I can verify that. But, if you take your time, the view is worth my sore legs today. Steep stairs, alot of them, just after climbing up on trail. Wear shoes comfortable for...More

The Bus (yes that is the name of the local bus service) has great service. We took a hotel shuttle because of a marathon that took place the day we visited.

There was a certificate available from the gift shop, where they sold tee shirts and such. Anything else would have been an illegal vendor.
