If you’re searching for the perfect spot to watch sunrise in Maui, look no further than Secret Cove. Nestled in between a quiet neighborhood, this beach is the essence of its name. We arrived just before sunrise, while the sky was still dark, using the light on our phones to guide us. We walked down a small path to an almost completely empty beach aside from one other eager photographer waiting patiently for the sun to creep up.
This is my absolute favorite time of the morning. I don’t always enjoy the actual process of waking up before sunrise, but once I’m up, there is no better feeling. It’s so incredibly quiet and peaceful- no emails, no phone calls and nothing to do other than just be. We sat on the damp sand listening to the waves crash against the rocks as the sky began to change colors.
Jetset Diaries has become one of my favorite brands for beach-y, warm weather clothing. I picked up this dress last summer for our trip to Greece and added this striped romper for our vacation in Hawaii. All of their pieces make me want to book a tropical trip stat- like this blue and white off the shoulder dress or this dreamy maxi dress. You can check out the rest of the collection here.
Once the sun is completely up, head on over to Kihei Caffe to indulge in their delicious breakfast. The perks of being up early? You’ll beat the usual lines and get to devour your coconut banana macadamia nut french toast right away (like I did!).
