A picturesque slice of paradise — with a twist (or should we say, a curve!). The crooked shape of the tree is what makes this location stand out, but this beach is also an ideal place if you want to just chill and watch sunset over the ocean.

This image of the Sunset Beach Crooked Palm Tree was taken on Sunset Beach, which is on the island of Oahu. When you get to the beach, it's best to park at Sunset Beach Parking (21.674175, -158.039061). Not only are there a lot of parking spots here, they also have a shower to wash your feet off after walking in the sand.
As you step on the beach, immediately turn right and you'll see the crooked palm tree just a few houses down on the shore. Reference the GPS to find the exact location where I took the photo.
