You’ll Want To Visit This Underrated Marsh In Hawaii Before Word Gets Out

Though the Hawaiian Islands are surrounded by the vast Pacific Ocean, the islands are no stranger to inland bodies of water. From man-made reservoirs and mountaintop lakes to winding rivers, spectacular swamps, and magnificent marshes, Hawaii’s inland bodies of water are nearly as gorgeous as our beaches — but far more underrated. Today, we’re taking you on an adventure to an off-the-beaten-path marsh with unmatched views and plenty of natural beauty.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
