Diamond Head is the name of a volcanic tuff cone on the Hawaiian island of Oahu and known to Hawaiians as Lēahi, most likely from lae 'browridge, promontory' plus ahi 'tuna' because the shape of the ridgeline resembles the shape of a tuna's dorsal fin. Its English name was given by British sailors in the 19th century, who mistook calcite crystals on the adjacent beach for diamonds.
Easy and cheap hiking trail. Only drawbacks are that there are a TON of slow tourists (elderly, small children) that might slow you down. Go early in the morning (park opens at 6) for the best experience.
Easy hike, for all levels. Very touristic place, so there's a lot of people and some of them are very slow. The point of view is amazing. Totally worth it.
Easy hike! Spectacular views!
