48 VOLCANO COAST Okay, the truth is that we sort of coined the term "The Volcano Coast of Maui." There was already a volcano here (actually two), and plenty of coasts, but the area around one particular volcano (Haleakala), is so magical that we felt we had to bring it to the attention of the thousands of visitors missing it each time they come to our Valley Isle. So, we created the name Maui's "Volcano Coast", and for the first time ever, are putting it on the map (the Maui Driving Map, that is). Get ready to find out what everyone's been missing! Great Drives around Maui Helpful tip 1: Be on time for sunrise! Check out AlohaSunrise.com to find out when the sun is rising at Haleakala. And remember to bring a jacket, and someone to snuggle with, mornings can be extremely chilly at the top. Helpful tip 2: Don't forget to bring your camera. The views from the top are breathtaking, and as you descend the slopes, you'll want to capture the moments, including the cute little baby goats at the Surfing Goat Dairy. Helpful tip 3: If at all possible, plan your trip to the Volcano Coast around a zipline tour or downhill bike adventure. Both activities are really fun, unique to that part of Maui, and well worth it. Helpful tip 4: At the end of your day trip, in the town of Paia, stop by Hana Picnic Lunch for some food or smoothies. Then on your way back grab a coffee or cappuccino and some freshly made gelato at Paia Gelato. by Dorothy & Bruce Morse >> Here's a shot of us, as the sun rises at the top of Haleakala Volcano, on our Full Day Trip to the Volcano Coast of Maui! The Volcano Coast If you ask your concierge how to get to the Volcano Coast of Maui, they'll probably give you a strange look and ask "Where?" That's because we created it! TIPS: Helpful
