To know more about Hawaii, here are some beautiful photos that will blow your mind away.
1. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
At first glance, this spot seems like the surface of the moon, and is likely one of the best places to visit when in Hawaii. Home to two active volcanoes, Hawaii Volcanoes National spans across more than 300000 acres and features around 150 miles of hiking trails through numerous spectacular ecosystems and landscapes. The starry night skies are unbelievable, too!
2. Wailua Falls
Hawaii is a land of waterfalls, and one of the best waterfalls is found on the island of Kauai, which is also known as the Garden Isle, famed for its vast tropical rainforest. The 200 ft Wailua Falls are easy to reach and easy to photograph too, with no hiking involved. One can also witness the waterfalls via Kauai airplane tours.
3. Nāpali Coast State Wilderness Park
It’s one of the world’s most beautiful and famed coastlines. A very special place in Hawaii, this spot definitely deserves a visit. The cliffs here offer the rough grandeur of narrow, deep valleys that end abruptly at the sea and are a sight to behold. The swift flowing streams cut through narrow valleys, whereas vast stone-walled terraces on the valley bottoms will give you the feels of Jurassic Park.
4. Kalaupapa National Historical Park
This beautiful Kalaupapa National Historical Park is accessible only by mule ride, airplane or a hiking tour. Make sure you have made a reservation in advance to be a part of the tour. The view of Kalaupapa Peninsula from 1000-foot elevation of Palaau State Park is marvellous, whereas its 34-acre recreation area takes you through the winding trails among eucalyptus, scenic views of Molokai’s north coast.
5. Makena Beach State Park
It’s definitely one of the signature beaches of Hawaii, and is one of the best places to catch a beautiful sunset. There is a tiny reef underneath the water here, offering you the opportunity to catch a glimpse of all the way to the bottom, which is a sight to behold. This area is divided into two beaches, known as the Big Beach and Little Beach. Do note that the Big Beach is more secluded as compared to the other one.
6. Waimea Canyon State Park
This beautiful spot overlooks even the more beautiful and colourful gorge of Waimea Canyon. The highlight of this park is a scenic drive that you will remember for a lifetime, various viewpoints of the canyon, picnic in the wild, and much more. Though it is certainly not as huge as Arizona’s own Grand Canyon, it’s greener and is known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.
7. Molokini Crater
Located not very far from the shores of Maui, this tiny volcanic cone is famed for offering unbelievable snorkelling expeditions. However, if this sport is not your thing, you can opt to enjoy a tour of the crater in a glass-bottom boat and believe us when we write that the experience will blow your mind away. Its beautiful coral reefs and tons of tropical fish are the highlight of this place.
