Horseshoe Bend is often referred to as the “east rim” of the Grand Canyon because of its proximity and impressive depth. While Horseshoe Bend is close to a two-hour drive from the Grand Canyon itself, the Colorado River runs through both places, connecting them.

Although it might seem like an unnecessary expense, renting a car is the cheapest way to get around Maui’s beach parks unless you want to be stuck in one small corner of the island.
