The combination of mountains and high rainfall found on the Road to Hana in eastern Maui have combined to provide a large number of waterfalls which can be viewed just short distances from your car.

The Lower Puohokamoa Falls can be seen from a lookout accessed by a trail off of a pulloff just past Milepost #11. It is a distant view, but a gorgeous one with red-flowering African Tulip Trees mixed into the forest around it.

A classic world surfing location, it is known for large tube waves and an extended 600 ft. ride. We were there on a gorgeous day and the scene was outstanding. In these images, you may be able to pick out a few dozen surfers waiting to catch a ride.

These four ladies have found a beautiful spot of beach they can call their own. This is from Oahu’s eastern shore. Their are miles of deserted beach once you get away from the population centers like Honolulu.

The Black Sand Beach

At Wai’anapanapa Park just before Hana, there is a beach of black sand which is formed when hot lava shatters as it encounters the sea. The beach is in a crescent of lava formations including an arch, and a blowhole.

On the day we where there, a large surf pounded into the beach, and it was a great spectacle to see them crash along the cliffs.

The Pali Lookout, Oahu

The Pali Lookout is one of the best views in Hawaii with spectacular cliffs of almost 1000 feet looking out to the ocean. It holds an important place in the history of the Hawaiian Islands. In 1795 King Kamahamaha I had left his home island of Hawaii and conquered both Maui and Molokai. In Oahu his army fought a decisive and bloody battle at this spot and that victory brought about the political unification of the Hawaiian Islands.

The Byodo-In Temple on Oahu was constructed at the foot of the Ko’olau Mountains in Oahu in 1968 to mark the 100th anniversary of Japanese immigration to Hawaii. It is a copy of a 1000 year old temple in Japan and was constructed entirely without nails.
