So… in our second week on Maui made a few one day trips. First of all, the Molokini Crater, which is a great location for snorkeling. The crater forms a crescent shaped Island which thus protects the inner side from the outer ocean and leaves perfectly clear water, with a visibility up to 50 metres!
Next we made our way to Hana to the east along the famous Hana Road (renowned for narrow roads, one lane bridges and hundreds of curves). We learned that this part of the island is the third wettest place of the entire planet and people are actually proud of it ;)
This trip took us all around the eastern side of the island and around Haleakala volcano. We came a long several awesome spots to see and probably missed as many due to – you guessed it – rain! But we did see Rainbow Eucalyptus trees, the harsh, lava-rock coast line and more.
And finally, today, we went around the western part of the island to Honolua Bay. Unfortunately the water was not as clear as the last time we’ve been there, but still we had a good time. This includes taking the north-western road back to Kihei, which provided more of those places you just have to stop and enjoy the view.
Oh, and guess who left his/her drivers license at home and is occasionally getting bored in the car?
yea, right :)
