Day 3: Road to Hana, part 3

There was sensory overload on this Road to Hana trip. I cannot wrap my head around all the beauty up to now. The trip feels like one whole scene without any pauses as it plays on my brain.

A few more photos from my album.

We stopped at a food truck spot for lunch.

We made a quick stop at a Waiʻanapanapa State Park to stretch our legs. This was the spot we thought perfect to throw our leis in the ocean. We heard, and please feel free to enlighten this writer, that it is tradition to throw your lei in the ocean to ensure your return to the islands. Much like throwing coins in the Trevi Fountain in Rome.

There go our leis.

Off the parking lot, there is a cemetery, but it's private. So I just took photos from outside.

When we reached the red sand beach or Kaihalulu Beach, we turned around. It's still going to be a long way home.

Pit stop here and hoping for some food, but one out of 2 ain't bad.

If lucky to do this again, I will stretch this road trip to at least 2 days minimum. We did not get to swim (I can't) in the ocean, or enjoy the waterfalls or do some trekking. Lucky are those that had the foresight to do this over the course of a few days.



  1. I like the colourful cafe, I wonder what type of smoothies they make?

  2. Incredibly beautiful for sure! That red sand is so interesting.

  3. The seascapes are fabulous. Looks like you had a great trip.

  4. pictures on the road to Hana, I've been down the road several times.

  5. This looks really amazing - I would love to go back to Hawaii.

  6. Amazing photos. Loved the post.

  7. Love all...but, the ocean views are spectacular.

  8. What a beautiful post of marvelous photos!

    Happy Day to you,
