Scenic Hawaii #1 – Maui (with 16 photos)

Maui is said to be the most scenic of the Hawaiian Islands.  Everywhere you go you can see lava rocks which actually created the Hawaiian islands from scratch millions of years ago.  The Highway to Hana that runs along the east coast is particularly breathtaking among the beautiful sceneries of Maui.  It has 600 curves, 54 bridges and numerous water falls. Most part of the road is one lane and unpaved with the ocean just on the side and the rain forest on the other.  Starting from the port of Kahului, the windward side of Maui is lush and green with rain forest around. After passing through Hana, it’s the dry desert like leeward side and the landscape and flora change.  To view all the photos, please click ‘continue reading’.
