Maui – The Road to Hana

Have you ever been to Hawaii? Have you had the chance to visit Maui? Hawaii was one of the many places on my bucket list and just over a year ago my wife and I were able to scratch these beautiful islands off of our list. If you’ve  been to Maui then you have no doubt heard of the ‘Road to Hana’ or the Hana Highway.

The road to Hana consists of 52 miles of winding road (atop steep cliffs, I might add), and very narrow bridges. As you move along this road you will turn on over 600 curves and  twists while crossing over 50 bridges. Most of the bridges are only one-lane wide!  Some of the most awe-inspiring natural beauty you’ll ever see is found on the Road to Hana. The Road to Hana is world-famous for the natural beauty of its unblemished landscapes with towering waterfalls, sugar cane fields and naturally painted trees.

While making your way along this winding road you will see endless, lush jungle, flowing mountain streams, waterfalls and vine-covered cliffs that tower above the highway to Hana.  As you peer over this tight lane road, you will see the awesome power of the ocean, as it crashes against the rocks below.  Along the coast. you can see surfers and wind surfers enjoying those famous Hawaiian waves.  The beauty of the island of Maui is simply breathtaking.  I am not sure what else to say really…. Just click on one of the pictures below and enjoy the slide show…

    1. I spent 15 days on the Islands and it has to be one of the most beautiful places I have ever been fortunate enough to visit. Especially as I gaze out my living room window on this cold wintery January day!
