HK's highways are mostly coastal.

Here's one highway that goes from Central to Shau Kei Wan

Nice pics from America. This the archetype of one from the flatlands:





That's the 'Afsluitdijk' (bardyke), completed 1932 and keeping out salty water and threats of floods.

The N98 (From Toulon to the Italian border in Menton) is the costal road of the French Riviera. In the same area, there are also the N7 and the A8 (Highway)

The "Promenade des Anglais" in Nice:







The "Croisette" in Cannes:





The N98 between St Raphael and Cannes:

Here's some of the afore-mentioned sea-to-sky highway.






It's currently undergoing reconstruction for the olymics, and there are also small protests by NIMBY groups to certain aspects of this.

Doesn't anyone have photo's of the Italian motorway A-10 that runs between the French border and Genoa?

It's probably the most impressive motorway I've ever seen (and believe me, I've seen alot of them all over Europe) and it's allways near the coast.
It's a continuous alternation between tunnels and very tall viaducts over the shore.

I agree with those others above about the Genoa (Italy) to Nice (France) Coastal highway.

I have been on many coastal roads all around the world, and this was easily my favourite. It is simply one of the most perfect, spectacular drives you can make. There are basically two roads, a small road (original highway) that follows closer to the waterline, and the newer autoroute higher in the hills. The autoroute passes over so many viaducts and through so many tunnels it's simply breathtaking. The light and views are the most impressive I have seen.

I'll try and find photos, but they simply won't do it justice.
