Hawaii is a popular destination a lot of people from all over the world visit and would like to visit. It is a dream location for surfers, but there are also tranquil turquoise waters that are just right for the families with children and those who prefer a quiet vacation. Hawaii is a tropical paradise and here are the ten most popular beaches.
10. Waikiki Beach
All kinds of activities happen at the Waikiki beach. For instance, canoe clubs are located here, but there are a lot of yachts as well. But there is the other, not so popular part of Waikiki, which is equally beautiful with 200 acres of parkland and few tourists and locals.
9. Honaunau Bay
If you want to try something different than lying on a beach or surfing, perhaps you can go scuba-diving, and Honaunau Bay is the perfect spot. The Kilueau volcano erupted and poured lava into the ocean creating like under the surface of the waters. You can see schools of different types of fish as well as beautiful corals.
8. Kaanapali Beach
In case you want to stay at luxury hotels, Kaanapali Beach is what you are looking for. It is home to the most luxurious resorts you can find on the islands, and after a swim in the sea, you can return to the hotel and rest by going to a lomi lomi massage.
7. Kauna’oa Beach
For those of you who prefer beaches off the beaten track, Kanua’oa Beach offers pristine sand and a magnificent view of the ocean. It is surrounded by palm trees, and in the distance, you can see the volcano. It is one of the most private beaches, and it is a quarter of a mile long.
6. Poipu Beach
Calm waters are not something you will find in Hawaii, but several beaches provide such as experience, and Poipu is one of them. It has earned the reputation for the tranquil seas, and the bottom of the sandy surface never gets deeper than three feet.
5. Lahaina Beach
The beach got the name after the whaling village of Lahaina, and here, you will see idyllic huts. This beach is considered to be one of the most romantic places in Hawaii, and many marriage ceremonies take place here throughout the year. If you find yourself here, make sure to see the Old Lahaina Luau, a traditional dance.
4. Hookipa Beach
The Hookipa Beach doesn’t have sugary-looking sand, and yet, it is one of the most popular beaches in Hawaii. Local windsurfers have a good time here, and people from all over the world come to windsurf here. The conditions are just perfect for this activity.
3. Punaluu Beach
When we think of the most beautiful beaches in the world, 99% of us will think of white sand and teal water. However, the Punaluu Beach is the opposite – it has become renowned for its black sand. Actually, the black sand and the entire beach was formed when lava from Mauna Loa and Kilauea volcanoes poured into the sea and cooled off suddenly. Panaluu Beach is definitely worth visiting.
2. The North Shore
The North Shore has a seven-mile-long stretch of sand, and it consists of three beaches. This place is both calm and aggressive, depending on when you visit it. In the summer, it is perfect for families because of the calm waters, but the waves get up to 30 feet during the winter which is the time when surfers occupy this beach.
1. Lanikai Beach
One of the most scenic beaches in Hawaii is Lanikai Beach. It has everything you have ever desired – a long sandy surface that stretched for half a mile, palm trees that tower over the beach and the sun that shines throughout the entire year. If you come to Lanikai, you can kayak to twin islands of Mokumanu and Mokulua and watch different types of birds.
