Top 10 Coastal Drives


(MCT) — Few things celebrate the end of winter like a great drive and enjoying the beach. Whether you can put the top down or not, members and editors of travel website are sure you’ll enjoy any of our “Top 10 Coastal Drives.”

1. Pacific Coast Highway — Monterey, California

2. Kuhio Highway — Kauai, Hawaii Although many choose Maui’s Hana Highway as Hawaii’s primary coastal drive, the drive from Kauai’s South Shore to the “end of the road” at Haena State Park is truly exceptional. By starting at Poipu Beach, your 52-mile (84 km) drive along Highway 56 has gorgeous views in either direction. With lookouts along the road, you’ll see scenery that is vaguely recognizable — this is the land where dinosaurs once roamed in “Jurassic Park.” The drive ends at Haena State Park, also the start of the Kalalau Trail, a rugged difficult climb along the NaPali Coast, which is inaccessible to cars. If you’ve got time, turn off the road and follow signs to the Kilauea Lighthouse as well as the St. Regis Princeville Resort — both spots have exceptional views.

3. Overseas Highway (Hwy 1) — Florida Keys

4. Cabot Trail — Nova Scotia, Canada

5. Great Ocean Road — Victoria, Australia

6. The Garden Route — Western Cape Province, South Africa

7. Ring Road — Iceland

8. The Atlantic Road — Norway

9. Northeast Loop — Phuket, Thailand

10. Kotor to Sveti Stephan — Montenegro
