What are some beautiful natural wonders in Hawaii?
Volcanoes, wildlife, pristine beaches, waterfalls, bamboo forests… the Aloha State truly is one big, beautiful place of immense wonder. For starters, there’s Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park, a place where fire and water meet in a violent, earth-shaking spectacle. This earth-shattering event is responsible for creating the Hawaiian Islands, and it’s on full display at this national park, which is 523 square miles of jaw-dropping scenery. The park contains some of the world’s most awe-inspiring wonders, not to mention two active volcanoes, offering visitors the once-in-a-lifetime experience to be up close and personal with these fantastic, fire-breathing wonders.
Another place sure to stoke and fan the flames of your wanderlust is Hawaii’s Nāpali Coast. Spanning 17 miles along Kauai’s North Shore, the Nāpali Coast is emerald-hued cliffs and lush forest jungles, gorgeous waterfalls, and endless turquoise waters. Nāpali Coast is defined by its majestic cliffs, some of which rise 4,000 feet above the sea. This is Mother Nature at its purest; a real-life Garden of Eden that seems almost too beautiful to believe.
Last but certainly not least, Molokini Crater is the state’s only island marine sanctuary; one of just three volcanic calderas in the world; and the very best place to go snorkeling in Hawaii. The experience of exploring Hawaii from the pristine waters of Molokini Crater is truly something you will remember for the rest of your life. A crescent-shaped crag of land rising 160 feet off the west coast of Maui, Molokini Crater is brown and barren from above — but an entire prismatic planet awaits beneath its rocky shores. Beneath the stunning cerulean waters, a wondrous world awaits, from sea turtles and 38 varieties of coral to hundreds of species of fish!
