On Maui, the Road to Hana is a popular drive and for good reason. However, Kahekili Highway (Hawaii State Highway 340) is a road less traveled that also provides lovely scenery and challenging driving conditions. The road goes around the rugged northern tip of Maui from Kapalua to Wailuku. Although it’s paved, the road features narrow passages around blind hairpin turns where there are rocks on one side and a sheer drop off a cliff (often with no guardrail) on the other side. Simply put, it’s not for the faint of heart or nervous driver, but it is worth it!
One of the biggest reasons to drive Kahekili Highway is to visit Nakalele Point, best known for the blowhole that shoots seawater up to 100 feet in the air. There is nothing like getting sprayed by water that brings out your inner kid. Having just enjoyed their delightful Maui destination wedding and now on their honeymoon, Gina and Aaron were the happiest people in the world anyways. Seeing them in this natural atmosphere amplified their playful spirits even more.
