Looking for somewhere to go early morning on Oahu? Try Hanauma Bay before the crowds roll in. This gorgeous spot is home to a large coral reef filled with tropical fish, and as the day goes on, people. In fact, it’s so popular that Google even mapped the underwater reef itself.
Early morning at Hanauma Bay affords pristine views and a calm sunrise on the cove wall, not to mention a nice walk.
Thanks to Josh Boothby for making the effort to get out there early and share this picture with us.
