The Gorgeous And Secluded Coastline Drive Everyone In Hawaii Must Take
The Hawaiian Island of Maui is an absolute paradise, with gorgeous beaches in a variety of colors, striking mountains, lush rainforests, and cascading waterfalls. And while Maui is one of the world’s most popular vacation destinations, there are many who never venture out of their resorts long enough to experience what the island truly has to offer. There are even fewer who experience the wild and unspoiled natural beauty that is the island’s northwestern shore.
Luckily for you, we’ve mapped out the ultimate road trip along this picturesque stretch of Hawaiian coastline, from Kahului to Kapalua, with 10 absolute must-stop attractions along the way. The road trip clocks in at only 30 miles and an hour and a half of driving time, perfect for a full day of exploring. From stunning hikes and a gorgeous ranch to coastal rock formations and beautiful bays, this stretch of the Kahekili Highway is absolutely stunning, perhaps even rivaling the famous Hana Highway to the south?
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
