Hana Highway, Maui, Hawaii

      1 Comment on Hana Highway, Maui, Hawaii

We visited the Maui in the summer of 2013. Oh what memories! We picked two contrasting islands for our trip – the Big Island, which is more serene and scenic; Maui, which is smaller and more commercialized.

I liked Big Island more than Maui. However, this blog post is about our drive along the “Hana Highway” in Maui.

This picture was taken from our resort (Kona Sheraton, Big Island, Hawaii) and not Maui :).

I have never been to the pacific coast highway in California and therefore have no frame of reference when describing the beauty of Hana Highway. Nevertheless, from what I have read or heard nothing holds a candle to the Hana Highway. The sights and sounds are indescribable. Truth be told – the drive is not for the faint hearted. I thoroughly enjoyed the panoramic views from the passenger seat of our car while hubby had to bear caution along the narrow, at times one-lane slippery road filled with sharp twists and turns; and the crashing pacific waves below. It was like “trekking” through a lush rain forest by car and being rewarded with a “scenic overlook” of the Pacific. The entire stretch is about a 100 miles and we made it up to about 70 miles. The drive is slow for obvious reasons and takes a couple of hours each way. I will add more posts on Hawaii. Until then love to all and safe travels 🙂
