The hike to the top of Diamond Head offers nice views of the Diamond Head Lighthouse and ocean below.

It is on private property and you can only see it from the road. The Blue Line Trolley does not stop so you can take a quick picture.

Diamond Head Lighthouse, Oahu
From Waikiki Beach, the Lighthouse is about a 45min (mainly coastal) walk with beautiful beaches and residences along the way. The lighthouse is visible from the street but no public access. Wear good walking shoes as the path towards Diamond Head is a little rocky.

The Diamond Head Lighthouse is located on Diamond Head Road that encircles Diamond Head. The lighthouse is not open to the public but is easily visible from both Diamond Head Road and near the Kuilei Cliffs Beach Park. The white concrete structure stands 55-feet tall and has a red roof. Originally built in 1899 and rebuilt in 1917 due to cracks, the place serves as the home for the commander of the 14th coast guard district. I did some research and found that large bonfires were used to guide mariners ashore. Lighthouses were built on Oahu after shipwreck of two large ships in the 1800’s. The red light was visible for 17 nautical miles from the shoreline.

Stop and get some pictures of the lighthouse and the views as you go by. It is not open to the public so you can't go in.

If you are going to Diamond Head, stop by the lighthouse for a few photos and set some shots of the ocean, too. The lighthouse is on private property.

If you like lighthouses like I do, you'll want to stop and get a few photos of this one. There is a small parking lot (pull-off area) and from there you just need to hop over the stone wall and walk a very short trail so you can get unobstructed views of the lighthouse.

The lighthouse is located on the south shore directly below Diamond Head and is a nice stop on a trip along the coast from Honolulu to the north shore. It is fully restored and offers some neat picture taking opportunities.

We were able to see the lighthouse from Diamondhead but didn't venture to the actual lighthouse grounds. The lighthouse is not open to the public.
