The Dreamy Country Road In Hawaii You’ll Want To Explore

Throughout the Hawaiian Islands, you will find unsurpassed natural beauty everywhere you go. And while here in Hawaii, we can’t take traditional road trips like our friends on the mainland, the islands are home to several incredibly stunning country roads perfect for a scenic drive. This particular road is located off the beaten path, and is not only home to endless natural beauty regardless of which direction you look, but is home to some of Hawaii Island’s best hidden destinations. Kapoho Kalapana Road, also known as Highway 137 and more affectionately referred to as “red road,” is perhaps the best country road the Aloha State has to offer, even though it is an extremely short stretch of road.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

While this gorgeous stretch of road is certainly enchanting, we think you might like Kauai’s Maluhia Road, as well as Maui’s Kahekili Highway.
