Hana is a small town located on the eastern tip of the island; it is commonly said that it’s not the destination but the journey that makes the trip so spectacular, and I couldn’t agree more! The road to Hana was stunning; words cannot describe how beautiful and scenic it was. Second only to Haleakala, the road to Hana is the most talked about sight on the island; the 52 mile road consists of 620 curves and 59 bridges many of which are one lane! The road travels through rainforests, past waterfalls and offers incredible views of the rugged coastline. We stopped many times along the way to explore the jungle, waterfalls and the remote Ke’anae Peninsula. We also had the chance to experience some crazy weather along the way – anything from torrential rain to gorgeous blue skies. I took over 500 photos as we drove the road to Hana so it’s been unbelievably difficult to choose a select few to share with you since they’re all amazing! Therefore I’ve decided to split this post into two parts and share the rest of the photos next week. I hope you’re excited to see the second part after seeing these!
