Most People Don’t Know About This Jaw Dropping Lake Hiding In Hawaii

Located more than 13,000 feet above sea level, near the summit of Hawaii Island’s Mauna Kea, is one of only a few lakes found throughout an island state known for its incredible beaches. If you were anywhere else in the country, this beautiful spot wouldn’t be considered a lake at all, but instead a mere pond. This is Lake Waiau, and it is an absolutely dreamy, heart-shaped body of water unlike anything else in the world.

Hawaii may only have a handful of lakes, but at least our beaches are top-notch.
