  • Stop and get some pictures of the lighthouse and the views as you go by. It is not open to the public so you can't go in.  more »
  • If you are going to Diamond Head, stop by the lighthouse for a few photos and set some shots of the ocean, too. The lighthouse is on private property.  more »

  • There were real Pineapple fresh drinks very reasonable
  • Well, you cant really visit as it's government property and you can only view from outside the gate. So unless you get permission (somehow) or know someone from the Coast Guard (guessing), you won't see much.
