Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Diamond Head, USA your home away from home

The Honolulu island of Oahu is full of amusements, small wonder holidaymakers seem unable to keep this locale out of their list of destinations. Among Oahu?s plenteous destinations is Diamond Head, a volcanic crater which is a beauty to behold and also a wonderful vantage point from which to survey the island and its surroundings. This incredible geological feature was known to the locals all along as Leahi which translates to ?brow of the tuna?. However, British expeditioners who travelled there in the 19th century christened it Diamond Head after discovering glittering rocks they initially thought to be diamonds. But clearly all that glitters is not diamond; the crystals turned out to be worthless. But a trip to this part of Oahu will definitely prove worthwhile for visitors as they will be treated to stunning views, exhilarating hiking and a host of other exciting things to do. The accommodation is also worth looking forward to, what with luxury condos boasting tremendous views, beachfront villas and tastefully furnished apartments awaiting visitors.

The inside of the Diamond Head crater hosts Fort Ruger, a military establishment built by the USA in 1909.
