The Untamed Destination In Hawaii Everyone Should Experience Once

The beautiful island of Oahu is known for many things: being the hub of business and industry in Hawaii, being home to the capital city of Honolulu, being a major destination for foreign travelers looking to spend time at the famous Waikiki Beach, and the killer traffic that ranks in at the second worst in the country. Untamed is not necessarily an adjective you would see used to describe Oahu – Kauai, definitely, but not Oahu, the most populated and developed of the Hawaiian Islands.

However, you can still find unspoiled natural beauty throughout the island if you know where to look – and there is one beautiful slice of paradise as far away from Waikiki as you can get that is wildly untamed, especially when it comes to Oahu. The destination: Kaena Point State Park, located on the northwestern tip of Oahu.
