However, not all beaches are created equal: from Oahu’s Hanauma Bay to Maui’s Kaihalulu Beach, there are several beach gems to uncover. One such hidden gem is found on the island of Kauai, tucked away in a Hanapepe industrial area, near Port Allen Harbor: this is Kauai’s Glass Beach, and it is covered with millions of sea glass pebbles in brilliant hues of aqua, blue and brown.
