Hawaiian Sunset Cafe Ambience with Relaxing Hawaiian Guitar Music & Crashing Waves Sounds

Enjoy this Hawaiian sunset cafe ambience with relaxing Hawaiian guitar music and crashing waves sounds. Listen to the instrumental Hawaiian music, chirping birds, and beach waves while you take in the view of a tropical sunset. Let your worries melt away and take a mental vacation to Hawaii. Settle in to watch the gently swaying palm trees against a beautiful island sunset over the ocean. Let the soothing sounds of a Hawaiian cafe / beach bar with slack key guitar and pedal steel create an atmosphere of peace and calm around you as you sleep, study, meditate, or relax.

This 8-hour calming music and waves ambience video was created by blending many layers of relaxing ambient sounds together to create an original background soundscape meant to help reduce stress and anxiety. Many people find ambient videos like this helpful for working, reading, sleeping, or general relaxation. All sounds and images were created by Calmed By Nature or used with permission. I collaborated with several artists to create the playlist for this video. For the tracklist, please see below.

  1. 🦉📖 . . .All you saw was a faded wooden sign sticking out the sand. You had spent all afternoon on the beach, walking along the sand and playing in the surf. You’re sun-tired now and ready for a rest, but there is no way you’re going back inside. This is the best time of the day! The bright sun is sinking into the horizon, the heat is mellowing out. A gentle, fragrant breeze caresses your face as you walk along the warm sand. You just need to find somewhere to be in time for the show—the sunset. The sky is already beginning to bloom into outrageous oranges and pinks. Where could you go to watch it?

    Then the sign: Sunset Cafe. The gentle sound of slack-key guitar music leads you to a barely visible path tilted up the slope from the beach, winding between the foliage to a beautiful little spot. Wooden tables and chairs, still warm from the sun, are arrayed across the sand in a little clearing lit with magical twinkling lights. The air is sweet with the scent of jasmine and plumeria and the coconut palms above are silhouetted against the sky, now fully awash in breathtaking sunset colors. On the horizon, a tiny boat is barely visible against the sun. You settle down at an empty table and breathe deep. You’d like to stay here, you decide, for as long as possible. This evening, this place, the waves, the birds gliding dreamily across the sky, are a gift whose value is immeasurable. You know if you savor it now, you’ll be able to return to it in your mind forever. . .

  2. Oh! this is wonderful! soft, gentle sweet and cheerful and not monotonous. I've been searching for the perfect music to have on in the background while I work – I get bored with the spa-sound. this has melody and rhythm without being distracting. Thank you SO SO much for creating this!

  3. I've been lucky enough to have travelled to Hawaii four times in my life and hope to go back in the future. This video is so wonderful and brings back so many beautiful memories. And the sunsets are just as gorgeous as in this video. I love that place.

  4. Medicine for our times. When tempers fray and anxiety boils, take a quick minute to look at one of Calmed by Nature scenes. Return to the good and wise person that you know you are before taking the next action. Thank you Calmed by Nature for helping us to breathe again.

  5. It's hard to choose, but this is definitely one of my favorites, I keep coming back to this one. We also used as a family as background (streamed to the TV) when we were all needing to get some work done and decided to sit together, made for a fun, chill vibe. Everyone agreed this was a keeper.

  6. Le monde est rose… Mirifique coucher de soleil, le ciel se décline en moult teintes qui subliment la terre ! Enchanteresse, attisante que cette mer de velours, le bruit des vagues qui viennent s'endormir sur le sable… Joliment mélodieux ! Ce bar, sa terrasse sont apprêtés avec grand soin ! Les clients vont arriver pour y vivre des heures idylliques ! Fantastique et merci beaucoup de me permettre, par cette réalisation admirable, de voyager … sans effort ! 🌴🌸🏵🌺🌴🕯🪔👁🐾🌊🌟⭐☄🌠💜💙💞💕
