Homes and Real Estate Near Diamond Head
Diamond Head is probably one of the most well-known landmarks in all of Hawaii. Named for the volcanic tuff zone on the island of Oahu, the shape of the ridgeline resembles the shape of a tuna’s dorsal fin but British sailors in the 19th century mistook crystals on the adjacent beach for diamonds, hence whites currently named Diamond Head. As a well-known feature to residents and tourists of Honolulu and Waikiki, this United States state monument is partially closed to the public and serves as a platform for antennas used by the US government. The creators close proximity to resorts and hotels makes the public access area a popular destination.
