Diamond Head is one of the most famous landmarks in the entire state of Hawaii. It is also one of the most photographed and painted spots on Oahu, adorning many calendars, walls, postcards and art galleries.
Known as Leahi in Hawaiian, the crater was named “Diamond Head” by 19th century British sailors who thought they discovered diamonds on the crater's slopes. These "diamonds" were actually shiny calcite crystals that had no value, but the name remains.
The Diamond Head region is one of the most sought-after locations to own property on the island and encompasses a number of high-end neighborhoods such as Kahala, Waialae Iki, Hawaii Loa Ridge and the Gold Coast. With its close proximity to the ocean, Honolulu, Waikiki and so much more, it’s no wonder this area is so desirable!
