It’s getting pretty hard to come to locations I visited as a kid without there being 15-20 tourists in the photos. I’d love to hear how everyone manages this, do you go earlier/later, try to explore and find new locations, change your composition so they’re not in the photo, photoshop them out, etc.?
This is the Mermaid Cave on Oahu. Since we’re the most popular island and directions have become really easy to google, there were about 20 tourists here. Waiting a few minutes, in addition to the tide getting rougher (but not dangerous) was all I needed to get an empty cave this day.
