Most People Have No Idea This Incredible Cave Is Hiding In Hawaii

The Hawaiian Islands are undoubtedly full of magnificent geological wonders, especially on the Garden Isle. One of these awe-inspiring wonders, found on the northern coast of Kauai, is an otherworldly cave that glows with a striking blue light. Waikapalae Cave, also known as the blue room, is quite simply the stuff of dreams.

Does the Blue Room look familiar to you? The grotto made a cameo in the 2011 film, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Check out the clip where Captain Jack Sparrow discovers the “fountain of youth.”
