We drove here via the long road (via National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific) - winding and narrow in places but worth the drive (just be careful of motorcycles & skateboarders). View is spectacular on clear day from Diamond Head to hills to the west....More

What a view! A short drive up the mountain results in a vista beyond compare. There's not much parking, so be prepared for the possibility that there will be not parking spaces available when you arrive. We drove up on a Thursday afternoon and had...More

I made this trip on a bicycle and took a picnic lunch with me. No admission fee, great workout for a bike ride and an easy but magnificent time once at the top. The best of views of all of Honolulu waterfront and Diamond Head....More

The tour guide from my photography tour took me to this great Lookout. Well worth the time a very short walk from the parking lot to the unobstructed lookout. I could see clearly Diamond Head and the entire Honolulu skyline including the beach and downtown....More

Stopped at the park during one of our last evenings in Oahu. The parking is quite limited and when it is raining it can get interesting. Was able to jump out snap some beautiful photos before we left the island.

It’s a steep, curvy drive but the views are well worth it! There’s a stunning view of Diamond Head, and Waikiki. I wouldn’t say it’s a “must do” but it’s free to get in, so if you’ve got the time, it’s worth a visit!

If you want to take an unobscured photo of Diamond Head and Honolulu, this is a great location. This was our first stop on a tour led by a professional photographer.
