Diamond Head

Diamond Head is one of Hawaii’s most prolific icons and graces the island of Oahu’ssouth shore.  Known to Native Hawaiians as Leahi, the volcanic tuff cone received its current name after British sailors noted calcite crystals embedded in the mountainside and mistook them for diamonds.  Part of the Koolau Volcanic eruptions that created the eastern half of Oahu, Diamond Head today is a defining feature of the Waikiki shoreline and is preserved as a United States Monument.  Fort Ruger , the first United States military reservation in the state, is located inside of the Diamond Head crater.

A beautiful hike will take tourists to the peak and affords those who make it to a top a gorgeous 360-degree panoramic view of the deep blue seas below, the green mountains to the north, and sometimes long-distance vistas as far as the islands of Molokai and Lanai.  A lot of real estate in Hawaii takes advantage of this natural beauty, making for an immeasurable island living experience.  No where else in the world can one climb dried out mountain cliffs, swim in the warm blue seas, sun on sandy beaches, and explore green forests within such a small area.  Diamond Head, one of the most recognizable places in Hawaii, truly graces the sights of Hawaii with its beauty and prestige.
