The Road to Hana

Posted by Alex Cortez on Saturday, July 26th, 2014 at 3:38pm.

With natural splendor, world-class amenities, and a culture worth exploring, Maui's establishments, resorts, and restaurants are mainstay in most 'best of' lists published. One worth noting is the inclusion of the Road to Hana among Business Insider's "World's Most Beautiful Roads".

The Road to Hana is famed for its hairpin curves set along Maui's East Coast - with waterfalls, bridges, and one of the most magnificent ocean views in the world to frame the splendor. With over 600 sharp turns and 50+ one-lane bridges, it's not a 'quick drive'. It can easily take a few hours, especially as it is strongly suggested to stop by one of the many roadside vendors (banana bread has never been this fresh!), explore some of the hikes, or continue on to the Seven Sacred Pools. Be conscientious that during rainfall, there may be road closures due to slides, etc. so plan accordingly.

For those who who would prefer to take in the views rather than be preoccupied with driving - it takes real, uninterrupted concentration - check out one of the many tour operators who operate 'R2H' Tours. And if you have the time and willingness, stay overnight at the Travaasa hotel for a once-in-a-lifetime experience - formerly known as the Hotel Hana Maui, this luxury all-inclusive resort is the true definition of Hawaiiana splendor.
