Hawaii's Best Beaches

Hawaii’s world-class beaches are the ultimate in sun, sand and surf. Our Islands offer literally hundreds of beaches to explore, each with its own personality and unique beauty. Imagine viewing epic swells at Oahu’s Waimea Bay, humpback whales off Maui’s golden-sand Kaanapali Beach, the Bali Hai backdrop of Kauai’s famed Hanalei Bay, sunset at Molokai’s untouched Papohaku Beach, wild sheep wandering Lanai’s remote Polihua Beach or the Big Island’s black-sand Punaluu Beach—and that’s just the beginning!

Kuliouou Ridge Trail Sign

Few trails on Oahu are as well maintained with such stunning summit views as the Kuliouou Ridge Trail. It begins in Hawaii Kai at the end of Kalaau Place, and ascends roughly 1,700 feet over 2.5 miles for a 5-mile round-trip hike. While rated as medium-level difficulty, it is fairly strenuous and should only be attempted by able-bodied individuals and dogs.

Early on in the hike is a divergence between the ridge trail and the valley trail. Follow signs for the ridge trail to the right for the hike to the summit. The ridge trail ascends with many switchbacks before arriving at roughly the halfway point, where there are picnic tables.
Although there are many possible shortcuts to avoid switchbacks on the trail, be sure to stay on the marked path. Leaving the trail and taking shortcuts leads to overall trail erosion. Read More
