Laurance S.

This sunset was captured at the Mauna Kea Beach Resort, which is just up the road from the Waikoloa Beach Resort. Although the hotel property is private, the beach access is public. It probably has the BEST sand in the area but you have to go early to get in! We were turned away twice after arriving at 10am.
