Koko Head

Koko Head is on the southeastern side of the island of Oahu. It defines the eastern side of Maunalua Bay, and on the western slope is the community of Portlock, which is part of Hawaii Kai. A headland is a high point of land mostly with a sheer drop that extends out into water, and is usually shortened as is the case of Diamond Head, and Koko Head.

Koko Head is a tuff cone of an extinct volcano, and is comprised of three depressions from old vents. The most well known depression is the one that forms Hanauma Bay. Koko Head itself is actually dwarfed by the neighboring tuff cone, Koko Crater that rises up to just over 1,200 feet. The eastern area of Oahu is very scenic and most of the area is part of Koko Head Regional Park administered by City and County of Honolulu.
