Just off Oahu’s windward coast near Kailua you’ll find Na Mokula–The Two Islands.
Made up of Moku Nui, “big island,” and Moku Iki, “small island,” the lonely pair make for a beautiful couple and fantastic photographs, like this stunning sunrise. To capture the duo with calm oceans means getting beating the winds, which means arriving predawn. This great shot catches the islands as they wake up to a glassy flat and morning pink hues.
Being so close to Kailua, the islands are frequented by kayakers, kiteboarders, boaters and surfers. The islands are off-limits however, as they are part of the Hawaii State Seabird Sactuary.
