Kawela Bay Beach Park

Not to far from where we are staying is a great little beach that you get to via a small forest of Banyan trees. Not just any trees  though. These Banyan trees have seen Johnny Depp dressed up as a pirate and some other people from a show that got lost, called, err, Lost.

There were quite a lot of instagram junkies hanging out, but fortunately whenever they got to close, one … Continue reading Laniakea Beach – Turtles
