Elope on Maui, but instead of the beach, think lava.
We all know that eloping to Maui probably brings to mind white sand beaches, sunset, and blue waters. But that’s not all Maui has to offer. The rugged coast line on a portion of the island is just as epic, if not more so. Why? Because it’s a dang lava field. Bonus? Yeah, on top of being an amazing topographic phenomenon, it isn’t as “loved to death” as a lot of locations on the island. I can think of a handful of places on Maui that used to be local hang outs, but once a visitor posted the coordinates/location online, tourists flocked to them. Now you can’t find a place to park unless you arrive before sunrise. This place remains relatively uncrowded, especially at sunrise or sunset.
The more I hiked through this lava field, the more I thought that the geography represents those tough times in marriage. Where it seems like nothing can be cultivated and nothing can grow because of the harsh environment. But guess what? That’s when the most resilient (and sometimes best) things start to sprout.
Want to reward yourself after a good hike? Then you’ll love the beaches that you pass along the way to the lava field bluff viewpoint, too.
Maybe you’re like, “Eh, Sam. I’m not sure how I feel about a lava field. I love me some volcanoes, but lava just doesn’t have that scenic view I’m looking for.” Well, look no further. Where did all the lava come from again? Yeah, look up. That big mountain looming over the lava field is Haleakala volcano, and boy does it put on a fantastic show at sunrise or sunset. Perfect view for an elopement, wouldn’t you say?
Just take a look at the scenery:
