I wanted to share some photos that my hubby and I took while we were on our honeymoon in Maui, Hawaii. After visiting 6 different Caribbean islands I have to say Maui is one of my favorite islands. The lush mountains full of trees and waterfalls, beaches at every turn, surfers everywhere, rainbows everyday, the amazing seafood, and the kind people are just some of the things that I really enjoyed. The terrain reminded me a lot of Jamaica :). We stayed for 10 days and got to explore the whole island. We didn’t want to leave, it was paradise!
The view from our room. On the days and evenings we didn’t go out to eat, we ate out on our lanai and watched the ocean and the rainbows.
We rented a convertible to enjoy the open air. Ate tacos from this little stand called Ono Tacos, delicious!!!
The love rock
We found a beach that had a river flowing into it
We found limes at the river and took some back to our place
Ate at this eclectic spot called Java Jazz
Our drive up to Haleakala Volcano. We went up 10,000 feet in elevation and were literally in the clouds. The temperature dropped, and it was misty
Admiring the clouds covering the massive trees.
On our way to the famous Road to Hana. It’s a must drive if you visit Maui. It’s 68 miles long and the drive is the most incredible drive because you can stop and see the the 7 Sacred Pools, the Black Sand Beach, the Twin Falls, and beautiful views of Haleakala Volcano. Hana was my favorite part of the island.
I was really happy to see a porta potty because my bladder is the size of a peanut and I always have to go! Carl also called me Dora the explorer the whole trip, especially when I had on my back pack and I would just run off and explore…lol.
We found Twin Falls
Waianapanapa Black Sand Beach was the most beautiful beach I’ve ever seen!
View of Haleakala Volcano
I found a Cross
I love this man
Breakfast at Gazebo. The best place to get breakfast. Carl had the traditional fried rice, pancakes with pineapple coconut syrup, and I went with the Maui Omlette. Most delicious breakfast food I have ever tasted!
We went to the Old Lahaina Luau. We were told it was the most traditional one. It was all you can eat traditional Polynesian food and all you can drink. The show was incredible! The Polynesians have such a rich culture and history, and a Luau is a great way to learn part of it.
We had Hawaii-style pig roast and Poi ( Polynesian staple food made from the corm of the taro plant) as part of our meal, it was so yummy! We watched the Hawaii-style pig roast where a large pit is typically dug into the ground and lined with banana leaves, as lava rocks are heated over an open flame.
Aloha Hawaii!!! We’ll be back!!!
