Kalalau Valley Lookout, Kaua‘i
The exotic, 4000ft high Kalalau Valley Lookout overlooks the ocean, and offers enigmatic views of the other-worldly landscapes. Mild winds will pamper your souls and you will be hypnotized by the perfect incarnation of the paradise. Clear days are the best to experience the ethereal views of the Kalalau valley but the charisma of the rainy days isn’t second to none either. The clouds shrouding up the Valleys disappear and are followed by showers of blessing. And how can we miss out on rainbows which bring to life most vivid fantasies of the nature lovers.
Road to Hana, Maui
A standout amongst all the scenic drives of Hawaii, or to put in as the locals, it is big Kahuna. The Hana highway windingly passes through the forested valleys, shapely peaks of the daunting cliffs, 54 bridges and nearly the same number of waterfalls and a plethora of twists and turns on its route. Get out of your ride and ease up at any of the many conveniently placed lookouts, or hike little deeper in to the lush forests, to get rewarded with turquoise swimming holes. Side roads scramble down to the laid-back seafront villages. If you have never savored smoked bread fruit or embraced the charm of the mystical Hawaiian temple. Rise up early, you have got too many things on the list for the day.
Haleakala National Park, Maui
Sunrise here is something beyond the imagination. Take the front seat, to experience the awe-inspiring panoramic performance of light show on the crater floors. You will witness many shades fusing into each other to give rise to a new hue on the floor. Of course, the sun is man behind the curtains here. Visitor centre is the favorite viewpoint here, at the daunting height of 9754ft and it’s just half a mile below the actual summit. Ditch the crowds by taking a short hike up to the White Hill for jaw-dropping crater views. The majestic Pu‘u‘ula‘ula is the highest point which is perched on the top here, and its grandeur is as difficult to explain as it is to pronounce it.
