With more than 10 years of experience as a professional writer, Megan holds a degree in Mass Media from her home state of Minnesota. After college, she chose to trade in her winter boots for slippahs and moved to the beautiful island of Oahu, where she has been living for more than five years. She lives on the west side but is constantly taking mini-road trips across the island and visits the neighboring islands whenever she can getaway. She loves hiking, snorkeling, locally-grown coffee, and finding the best acai bowl on Oahu.
From crashing waves and insidious tide pools to deadly waterfalls and extreme hiking trails, the Hawaiian Islands are not only home to stunning natural beauty, but also grave danger. While some of these 14 spots are illegal and closed to the public, others remain as popular tourist spots with a bad reputation as the most dangerous places in Hawaii.
While we understand that many of these spots seem enticing, visitors and locals alike should heed warning signs, and avoid taking any unnecessary risks. Please be safe out there, and always make sure someone knows where you’re headed if you’re hiking, or exploring a secluded part of the dangerous places in Hawaii.
