I'm always chasing sunsets. There's something magical about them, here in Hawaii -- the salt in the air, the palm trees, the vibrant colors...
In my wanderings, I've found a few places which are now my favorites:
1. Kaena Point State Park
When it comes to watching a sunset, one thing I like doing is literally chasing the sun -- getting as close as I can. On Oahu, that's Ka'ena Point State Park.
During the winter the waves roll in close, so there is often salt in the air. This creates a dreamy "golden hour" unlike any other I've seen.
2. Haleiwa Boat Harbor
The sunset doesn't have to be particularly amazing, and I -still- love being at the Haleiwa Boat Harbor at sunset. The warm light on the boats and water is beautiful.
3. Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument
This is a beautiful view, sunset or not!
4. Sharks Cove
Located across from several great food trucks in Pupukea, Sharks Cove is a great place to grab dinner and enjoy the sunset! When the waves are big, they crash over the sides of the cove and the sunlight reflects off them.
5. Sunset Beach
Makes sense to watch the sunset from a beach named "Sunset", yeah? You won't be disappointed. No matter the time of year, it's going to be a great view of the setting sun. Bonus: It's also a great place to watch surfers and paddle boarders!
