The Underrated Natural Wonder Every Hawaii Local Should See At Least Once

The Hawaiian Islands are absolute paradise for lovers of the outdoors, full of majestic mountain peaks, pristine beaches with turquoise water, breathtaking waterfalls, awe-inspiring volcanoes, and remarkable rock formations. While everyone should add Hawaii’s most famous natural wonders — think Waimea Canyon, Mount Haleakala, Akaka Falls, and Diamond Head — to their island bucket list, there are other, lesser-known natural wonders you absolutely must visit at least once. Such is the case with Puu Pehe, a unique rock formation nestled along the coast of Hawaii’s sixth largest island, Lanai.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
