I can sort of remember the drive in the old days. Thankfully, it’s not like that now.
The famous road to Hana on the island of Maui is legendary for its numerous (as in 600 or so) twists and turns and its numberous bridges (54 at last count, many of them one-way).
It used to be full of potholes and bumps but the pavement has been smoothed out over the years and it’s now a great road. What used to take hours and hours can now be driven in two hours or less. But don’t hurry; you’ll miss the spectacle before you on what still ranks as one of the world’s most beautiful drives; with towering canopies of African tulip trees, dazzling waterfalls at the side of the road, green-clad mountains plunging into the sea and spectacular views of the Maui coastline, with its black lava rock and deep blue waters.
Here are a few photos from my most recent trip….
