The perfect way to relax at the end of a day in paradise? There are, of course, many answers to that question. But the correct answer, as we see it, must include mention of catching the Hawaii sunset. Where, exactly? Just about anywhere in the Islands works well for us. Still, everyone has favorite go-to place for those most serene of scenic sunset moments.
We’ve counted all of the votes from our latest HAWAII Magazine Facebook Ohana poll question: Where is your favorite place to watch a Hawaii sunset? The top five vote-getters are on the pages ahead.
Your picks pinpointed dozens of different stretches along Hawaii’s major islands. Some specified viewing spots along shoreline as well as offshore areas. Others listed favorite pau hana spots — beachside restaurants and bars, hotels and resort lanais. One response even noted favorite poolside lounge-chair placement and a drink to sip at the onset of the evening hours. Mahalo for sharing your favorite sunset settings!

OK, now, here we go. Here’s the top five countdown of our Facebook ohana’s favorite place to watch a Hawaii sunset:
North Shore, Oahu
It takes about 45 minutes to drive from Waikiki to the North Shore’s famous surf town, Haleiwa. A few miles before reaching Haleiwa’s cluster of beach shops, restaurants, and shave ice destinations, you’ll see the shoreline’s waters. And during winter months, you’ll see the world-class waves. Spanning more than seven miles, the North Shore’s beaches host premiere surfing competitions. Sunset Beach, from the Banzai Pipeline area to Sunset Point, is, of course, among the most popular places to bring a camera during dusky hours.
