Hanauma Bay in Oahu, Hawaii greets you with a dash of bright green and blue and sends gusty winds to give you company. And then when you see the boundless ocean, it sends small waves and if you continue standing there for some time, the waves splash against the mountain in such a way that the scene spans the summits of your mind. Slowly and steadily, it casts a spell on you so strong that even if you are restless in your rest, you will yield to its vibrancy.

Hanauma Bay from a vantage point

Hanauma Bay with palm trees from the lookout resembled a scene that had sailed in my dreams often. But when I was looking at the bay, it seemed like a beautiful dream even more; such is the magic of the Bay.

Hanauma Bay

Spectacular Hanauma Bay, which is a nature preserve has got its name from the Hawaiian language. Hana means bay and Uma means curve in the Hawaiian language. Our daughter Chirantana quickly woke up from her nap the moment the sweet breeze caressed her at the lookout.
