Breathtaking view from the volcano top

★★★★★ I come from Bulgaria, where you can visit the highest summit on the Balkan Peninsula. Well, Haleakala is a few meters higher and the drive from 0 (see level) to 3000 meters (10 000 feet) is quite the experience. The sights are beautiful as you drive up and it's so easy to get distracted by the view. Yet the road is narrow and if you're not careful... brrr.

They say watching the sunrise from the top is an out-of-this-world experience and I can see how it could be true. Just be prepared to leave early and be *extra* careful when you drive up during the night. Also bring warm clothes. It was coldish during the day, I can imaging how it is during the night.

On a clear day you can see a bunch of the other Hawaii islands, in fact more islands can be seen from here than from anywhere else. On the picture you can see the other Maui summit and behind it - another island, probably Molokai.


Nice beach in south Maui

Keawakapu beach

★★★★★ We went to 4 beaches in Kihei, South Maui - the one that's next to the Maui Prince, "The Big Beach" and another one, forgot the name, but the Keawakapu is the one we liked best.

The photo above is not a postcard, I took it, as you can see, not too crowded. The photo is taken in the evening and I waited a while to have the beach empty, because people were strolling by. The beach is not usually that deserted, but with a little luck you may be one of the few people on it.

Here's a photo of me bathing with the kidos. Keawakapu

Part 2?

Enough with the good reviews, I'll continue with the bad ones in an additional post :)
