✮ Isolated from the rest of the island, Hana with its beautiful rainforest, mountains and spectacular coastal scenery is truly a tropical paradise on Maui. And this is the first place I lived after moving to Hawaii.
We were influenced by the many lush tropical gardens in our coastal neighbourhood and overseas, too, she says. Tropical plants are also amazingly hardy. It also helps that Bilgola is full of red volcanic soil so everything grows really well!
