Pu'u Ola'i Maui Hawaii 1

In the Makena State Park of Maui, Hawaii, Pu’u Ola’i displays the famous “green flash” sunsets!

The Green Flash is a rare, natural meteorological phenomenon that happens when the the sun’s blue and green rays remain in the atmosphere longer than the yellow ones. They typically lasts only a few seconds and sometimes up to several seconds. Definitely a must-see at least once in a lifetime.

Mount Haleakala, Maui, Hawaii


The East Maui Volcano is a massive shield volcano that forms more than 75% of the Hawaiian Island of Maui. This dormant volcano provides breathtaking views at its highest peaks, literally at any point of time in the day. Want to have a feel of walking in the clouds or above the clouds? Try Haleakala, if the pronunciation doesn’t beat you hands down that is.
