Perhaps the most recognizable natural landmark on Oahu, Diamond Head, offers great views – both from the elevated, volcanic crater, and of it. If you’re looking for a view of Diamond Head, check out Mount Tantalus or Pu’u Ualaka’a State Park – both of which offer great panoramic views of Diamond Head and more. If you visit Diamond Head, you’ll capture spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, as well as the entire island of Oahu.
Perhaps the most memorable photos are of sunrise and sunset on Oahu. Is there anything more energizing than seeing the sun rise over the beautiful fauna of Oahu? Is there anything more relaxing than watching the sun slowly set over an seemingly endless ocean? Capturing that moment – priceless.
If you’re seeking guided opportunities aside from the sunrise/sunset tours, you might consider a circle tour that allows you to see all of Oahu.
