Honokalani Beach, deemed sacred by the Hawaiian people, is a small volcanic crescent-shaped beach tucked in the stunning Waianapanapa State Park in Hawaii. The jet black sand, bright turquoise water and lush green forest create a mystical, otherworldly effect on this sacred stretch of sand. While the surf is too powerful to swim in, the glistening water flowing onto the black sand, with the backdrop of vibrant foliage, creates endless opportunities for captivating photos.
