No. 5 (tie)
The most popular beach on Kauai’s sunny south shore is Poipu Beach. Before enjoying the sunset here, may visitors enjoy snorkeling in the gentle waters near the beach, which winds for about one mile in a series of crescent shapes. The area’s abundant marine life, which has changed little since early Hawaiians fished these waters. In addition to swirling schools of tropical fish, eels, sea urchins and the occasional sunbathing honu (Hawaiian green sea turtles), rare Hawaiian monk seals are often spotted here swimming or lounging in the sand.
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. 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. Also, the North Shore, Mokuleia Beach Park is also a great place to watch the sunset.
