Trail
“Great short hike with amazing views! Also where most rescues occur. Wear hiking or tennis shoes, hat, sunscreen, bring a lot of water, and go in the afternoon to avoid the hot sun and lack of breeze in the mountains. Crowded hike, but afternoons are less crowded. $5 fee for cars, $1 for pedestrians. ”

Natural Feature
“This is our favorite local beach, named after the hotel directly behind it (which has a great happy hour at its lobby bar). It's an easy, scenic 15 minute walk or 5-10 minute ride/drive. Walk toward Diamond Head, along Kapiolani Park on your left, and you'll get to Kaimana Beach. It is located between the War Memorial Natatorium and the New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel. It is a beautiful wide stretch of beach that is popular with locals because it away from the tourist crowds of Waikiki. The beach is protected by a wide reef and the near ocean bottom is shallow and sandy, great for swimming and snorkeling. The beach is also an access point for the popular surf spot Old Man's.”
