West Maui road trip

We drove today around the northern tip of Maui on route 340, skirting the West Maui mountains. The road for at least ten miles is one lane, cliffs on one side and a sheer drop on the other. The views are spectacular in this remote part of the island, however sometimes there is no guard rail and there are lots of blind curves, so driving caution is highly recommended!

Northern Maui beach

Yet another idyllic beach in Maui, there were just a few others here too.

nothern Maui bluffs

These bluffs had to have been formed by volcanoes.

    This trip is far better than the road to Hana. I have driven both and if given the choice, I would not do the road to Hana knowing this trip is also available. It can be a little hairy but the scenery is well worth it. There was also very little traffic both times I traveled this road.

    Maui looks totally beautiful, I’m excited to visit there on my roadtrip, I’m taking to interview a blogger in all 50 states.

    I’ve saved Maui for my last destination, because I’m planning on a nice holiday! 🙂
