2. Honopu Beach, Kauai, Hawaii
Otherwise called Cathedral Beach, Honopu—like Waipio Valley—is very hard to reach. For one thing, it’s not open aside from by water, so to arrive, you should swim from a seaward watercraft, or from neighboring Kalalau Beach (a quarter-mile swim). Be that as it may, the inconvenience is justified, despite all the trouble: Think cumin-shaded sand circumscribed by taking off, vegetation-shrouded precipices—and, most circumstances, not a spirit in sight.
