A stunning view of what Diamond Head volcano created many years ago. The blow hole rises with the tides. The layers of lava rocks is amazing. A nice drive on your way to Sandy each!

I like going out there, great place to gather your thoughts. Don’t go in the water unless you can swim well, and know the specific spots to get in and out of the water.

Marvel at nature and its beauty. Only a very short walk down a steep driveway but well worth the views.

Beautiful. VERY windy. Amazing views. Awesome scenery for picture taking. The drive to and from is something you don't want to miss. Well worth the time spent.

The views are amazing from here, if you dare to jump off into the water just be well prepared and know how the tides are. PLEASE be wise if you decide to jump in.
