What is Your ONE Do Not Miss Stop on the RTH

I have read, printed out the ebook on the RTH stops and read some more.

I have started listing the stops that I want to make on the RTH. We have plenty of time since we will be spending the night in Hana and doing the Pipiwai Trail first thing the next am before heading back.

If you had to pick ONE spot that you would tell someone (in this case me) NOT to miss - what would it be and why?

Since I am not sure if I will ever do this drive again I at least want to pick the hot spots.

Thanks

The Keanae Peninsula. Why? The gorgeous views and Aunt Sandy's banana bread!! Of course, I have tons more but that is not what you are asking, right?

Ok.......has to be a two parter. IF I can get the husband this far......Wai'anapanapa State Park. BUT lately he will only go this far Ke'anae Peninsula for the same reason Msfuzz said. And for the park......our homemade lunch is the best meal ever in front of those pounding waves! Deb

here is the website. It is small deli/cafe in the Fairway Shops in Kannapali near the golf course, We got a wonderful lunch, cooler and all for $12. you pay a deposit on the cooler and it is returned to you when you bring back the cooler. We found it a fair deal and good food for our picnic

Enjoy!

I don't know the Kihei area very well, maybe someone else could chime in, Deb, Joan, Cheryl? We always stay on the west side. I am sorry I wasn't much help to you :-(

CIndy - not necessarily unhelpful. After Hana we are spending 4 nights at Mahana - will have to pick up CJs for a picnic lunch one day we are there.
