Hawaii’s Sprawling Ma’ili Beach Park Is An Off-The-Beaten-Path Gem

Whether you live on Oahu or are vacationing in Waikiki, it is a definite fact that the island’s leeward coast is severely underrated. The beautiful windward coast is known for incredible hiking and lush jungle, Honolulu is the center for business and culture, and the north shore is a haven for surfers, but the west coast is often overlooked for other, more accessible parts of the island. It’s a true shame because this slice of coastline is home to some simply stunning landscapes — including this off-the-beaten-path paradise.
