Best Scenic Hikes in Hawaii

Where are the most scenic places in Hawaii?

There's no shortage of amazing scenery in Hawaii, a place where it's impossible to not be in a constant state of awe and wonder. In addition to the scenic hikes listed above, here are some other spectacularly scenic places in Hawaii:

  • Hāpuna Beach. This Hawaii beach is the very definition of paradise. It's a 61.8-acre oasis with a gorgeous stretch of white shoreline and crystal-clear waters ideal for swimming, bodysurfing, snorkeling, and scuba diving.
  • Haleakala National Park. Pretty much *any* Hawaii hike is going to offer sublime, otherworldly splendor; but in terms of an experience that will turn your perspective upside down, nothing compares to the Waimoku Falls via Pipiwai Trail at Haleakala National Park. The 3.8-mile hike itself is relatively flat and easy to hike. You’ll only ascend 932 feet across the entirety of the trail. There are extraordinary and unique features all the trail, including a section through a dense, beautiful bamboo forest that will have you feeling like Alice in Wonderland.
