Hanauma Bay hike offers amazing views on both sides of the trail. The hike is a paved asphalt path with an elevation gain of 500ft – it isn’t a tough hike. As you are hiking up, on your left you will see Hanauma Bay and then to the left of the bay you’ll see Koko Crater. On your right you will see Honolulu in the distance. Bring sunscreen: this hike doesn’t have any cover at all, so you are in the sun the entire time.
