Hanauma Bay Oahu Hawaii

This is a beautiful remote place. The variation of blue is amazing. The bay was used as a recreational area by the Hawaiian nobility, including King Kamehameha and Queen Ka‘ahumanu, who fished, entertained visitors, and sponsored games there. It was also used as a layover and as a navigational lookout point, since the waters between Oahu and Molokai are at times difficult.
