Kaena Point

Kaena Point, on the western tip of Oahu, is a sacred lava shoreline said to be where the souls of ancient Hawaiians would jump off into the spirit world. These days, people jump off here in powered gliders—or soar over in aerodynamically streamlined sailplanes, thanks to favorable prevailing winds. Up with the gods, you'll see the Waianae coast to the south, Mokuleia to the north—and the glorious denim-blue Pacific stretching from here to eternity.
