Diamond Head history and information

In the 1800's, British sailors saw shiny calcite crystals shining on the crater and thought there were diamonds in Hawaii's soil.  Hence the name "Diamond Head."  The Hawaiian translation of the British name is Kaimanahila, meaning- "diamond hill".  Near Fort Ruger Park (aka "Triangle Park") there's Kaimanahila street.

When the United States annexed Hawaii in 1898, Fort Ruger was established inside Diamond Head. Cannons were hidden in the sides of the crater and a deck was installed at the summit to watch for enemies.

In 1899 the Diamond Head Lighthouse was  built at the front of the crater.  The structure was demolished and a new lighthouse was built in 1917.  That lighthouse is still in use today and can be viewed from the road.  On rare occasions the Coast Guard gives guided tours of the historic site. 

Walking to the top of Diamond Head is a pleasant 1 1/2 mile hike (roundtrip). Bring drinking water and a camera! On a clear day one can see Molokai, Lanai and the Waianae mountain range, all from the Diamond Head lookout.
