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!
