Painted eucalyptus trees are scattered throughout the drive to Hana. Keep your eyes out for them. Wonderful to discover this turtle enjoying the sun on the beach. #LifeAtExpedia #merch The beach view outside of Mama's Fish House This is a pretty 'locals' beach on the Road to Hana. Turtle spotting! Lava black rocks, white sand and the blue green of the ocean. Add surfers on a 4 to 5 foot break with turtles feeding off the rocks and it has to be Hawaii. One of my favorite spots..🌈 I didn't see him catch anything, but he looked good. Surf Board Fence, found along Paia town, along Hana HWY.. MAUI, HI.
#colorful Paia Bay beach is just amazing and most of the time as crowded as in this photo. Seriously, I don't know why more people don't come here. I'm probably going to hate myself for posting this :) It's one of our favourite beaches on Maui. #beach #Hawaii #Paia #Maui #UnitedStates #USA #blue #AquaTrove We discovered the most gorgeous color of water at Hookipa Beach in Maui, Hawaii. After arriving into OGG airport, head East (away from Wailea and Lahaina). In about 15-20 minutes, you'll reach this world-famous beach, where you can not only enjoy the beauty of the ocean, but also watch highly skilled surfers taking on the crashing, blue waves. It's rather mesmerizing and well worth your time.
The reason I mention visiting it now is that it's rather inconveniently located for a later visit if you're staying in the most common resort areas...unless, of course, you plan to do the #beach
This pristine cove is actually the setting of one of the best restaurants on Maui, Mama's Fish House restaurant in Maui. Read more about it and also the best places to eat on Maui here: The beach just outside of Mama's Fish House #BeachBound Best place for wind surf in Maui, HI. Go check it!
#waterlust Turtle rock Maui, HI #BeachBound Dozens of turtles come ashore around sunset to rest for the night. #lifeatexpedia #roadtohana Wind surf in Maui, HI.
#waterlust Passing by Twin Falls in #Maui, #Hawaii on the famous Road to Hana. These short hikes off the Road to Hana lead you into beautiful tropical wilderness like this. #travel #roadtrip #roadtohana #hiking Just for the record, they'd like to keep it a 'locals' beach. LOL A little hidden spot is down below this look out where you will see ton of turtles sleeping!! Be quiet and don't wake them! Ho'okipa lookout This seems to be a great place for surfing, but go just before sunset to watch dozens of sea turtles come ashore to rest for the night.
#lifeatexpedia #roadtohana An average winter day on Maui #LifeAtExpedia On the way back from Hana in Maui, Make sure to take the time to check out the coast. It completes the “Road to Hana”.  Beach! Ono, mahimahi, and Ahi sautéed in panang curry and coconut milk. 5 mins down the road from the Ho'okipa Beach (apparently one of the best beaches in Maui), is an easily missed little beach that is quieter with better sand, better entrance into the water and lots of green sea turtles pulling themselves out of the water each evening. Fantastic interior. You must have dinner here if you visit Maui. Call for a reservation. Temple located in the quaint boho town of Paia on Maui. One of my favorite towns! Great shops, dining and just a walk away from one of my all time favorite beaches Baldwin Beach. Polynesian black pearl dessert. It's chocolate mousse in a pastry cookie shell. So yummy! Visiting #expediapartners on our beautiful island of Maui #lifeatexpedia #restaurant My day is great. Not the most swim able beach but it was the most beautiful beach we found in Maui. Sun setting over Maui from Hawaii Hwy 36 coming back from Hana. Love these creatures😊 catch them in their natural habitat😊 maui, hawaii Lovely original building in central Paia Lovely contrast of the trees and sky
