Where to Take in a Hawaiian Sunset
The days in Hawaii come to a close the same way each and every day. The temperatures cool, locals retreat to their homes (or the beach), and the sun drops below the horizon, creating the most incredible colored sky that brings to a close another day in the islands. The days in Hawaii are spent having fun and taking part in great activities, while the nighttime brings luaus and evening shows, and at dusk, there are great places to view a stunning Hawaiian sunset.
Really, there is no bad place to view the sunset, and as long as you have a view of the horizon, you will be able to see something incredible. However, if you have the chance to get outside and take in the colorful sky and disappearing sun, by all means do!
Where are the best places to take in a Hawaiian Sunset? Here are our favorites:
Sunset Beach - Oahu
They really stretched when finding a name for this beach, and when you sit on the sand and watch the sun go down, it’ll be pretty easy to see why. The sun sets on the North Shore are breathtaking, but there is something truly magical about watching it from Sunset Beach. Enjoy a cold beverage and fresh poke while enjoying the end of the day and you’ll instantly create a new favorite memory.
Haleakala - Maui
Head up to the summit of the volcano on the Haleakala Sunset Tour and do not take your eyes off of the horizon. At the highest point on the island, there is nothing to obstruct your view from up here, and from this elevation, you’ll have a view of the sunset that cannot be beat.
Kohala Coast – Big Island
The Kohala Coast is one of those places in Hawaii that is so beautiful and peaceful that you’ll want to move here right away. The sites are amazing, but the sunset steals the show. Like the sunset on other islands, the sky is filled with magnificent colors that paint the sky is a way that doesn’t seem real.
Mauna Kea – Big Island
Mauna Kea is the highest point on the Big Island, and way up here where it often snows during the winter, the sunsets over the horizon in a way that cannot be explained. Head up to the summit for the sunset and stay for the Mauna Kea Stargazing Tour, an added bonus for the day and the chance to see more stars than ever!
On a Boat – Any Island
Instead of hanging on the beach for the sunset, head out to sea and enjoy the end of the day on the ocean. Sailing Tours and Sunset Dinner Cruises make for a great evening and the view of the island will change your perspective on where you are staying. The sunset creates the perfect backdrop and the cool ocean breeze and sets the ambiance for an amazing evening. Each of the island offers Sunset Cruises, many including dinner and cocktails.
