An ideal day starts at sunrise atop Haleakala.
From shoreline to mountains and everything in between, Maui does not disappoint. The islands’s geographic landscape boasts winding roads, rolling hills and stunning beaches. Whenever I visit Maui I make a habit of driving to Upcountry. A world away from beach resorts, the bucolic scenery in this part of the island reflects its agricultural and paniolo (cowboy) roots. On the slopes of Haleakala, you’ll drive by ranches and farms in the communities of Makawao and Kula, which is the location of Hawai‘i’s only eight-sided church that was built between 1884 and 1897 by Portuguese immigrants.
