This extinct volcanic tuff cone stands guard over Waikiki and is O’ahu’s signature background. You can hike to the top in about an hour or less– a paved path leads 1.3 km (0.8 miles) all the way to the top, which at 232 m (760 feet) affords some quite incredible views of Waikiki. (OK, you’ll still have to see a beach. However, you won’t have to step on it. Delighted?).
