Everyone In Hawaii Needs To Take This Epic Drive As Soon As Possible
Found just east of the H-1 freeway in Honolulu is Pu’uohi’a, a majestic mountain that offers a sweet respite from the high rises and miles of boring sidewalks in Hawaiian’s capital city. The mountain is home to hiking trails, a close-knit mountain community, striking homes, sweeping views – and perhaps the coolest drive on all of Oahu.
Not only should Tantalus Drive be on every tourists’ Oahu bucket list, it should be a local go-to when you want to get away from it all. Something about driving the steep incline and hairpin turns – as well as the phenomenal views – makes you forget about all the stresses of life and truly live in the moment, if only for the duration of the half hour drive.
