Some people may think Hawaii is overrated. We think it’s home to magic; a place where you can find everything from rainbow trees to fiery water to beaches made of sea glass.

The below 21 spots, after all, prove one thing: the Aloha state has a lot more to offer than just white sand beaches and tropical drinks. With an environment as diverse as its people, the small state packs a heavy punch in the magic department.

1. Bamboo Forest, Haleakala National Park, Maui


2. The sea caves along the Na Pali Coast, Kauai

Specifically: Waiahuakua sea cave, Hoʻolulu sea cave and Open Ceiling cave


3. The Queen’s Bath, Kauai


4. The sea cliffs of Molokai


5. Glass Beach, Kauai


6. Honokohau Falls, Maui


7. The Road to Hana, Maui


8. Anywhere with Rainbow Eucalyptus Trees


9. Or Banyan Trees
