Road to Hana, Hawaii

Road to Hana 9

Hi there my fellow travelers,

Been a while since I wrote a travel post. I had the chance to visit the beautiful island of Maui last month and I loved it even more. I got the chance to collab with Valley Isle Excursions and go on a fun road to Hana trip. If you are not comfortable driving on the windy hawaiian roads to hana, I would suggest you book a tour and enjoy the views. You also get a chance to meet some cool new people and have fun along the way instead of worrying about driving. The tour company was extremely professional , timely and our driver was very knowledgeable.

The view from the breakfast room

We were a group of about 10 people and were picked up in a minivan. Our first stop was after an hour for breakfast before we began our journey. Breakfast was simple but yummy. There were pastries, juice and coffee. I would also suggest you carry some dopamine along with you if you have motion sickness.

We crossed this Arboretum on the way, we din’t go inside, but I had been here on my last visit to Maui and it’s beautiful and a good break point after some driving.

This is the gorgeous Wai’anapanapa State Park. The sand was darker (almost close to black) here. But that also made the water sparkle and look gorgeous..!!

Unfortunately, the Pools of Oheo was closed during this time due to an accident and I couldn’t swim here. But they have some beautiful views and waterfalls

Overall, I had a great time on the tour. Got a chance to explore Hana in the luxury of a van. I would highly recommend you do this tour while in Maui. Happy to answer any related questions. They also offer tours to watch the beautiful Haleakala Sunrise in Maui. Book that tour by clicking this link here.

Have a wonderful day 🙂

Love,

Ankita
