One of the area's most famous highways, Hana Highway - Road to Hana is about the journey rather than the destination. Your 84 km (52 mi) trip between Kahului and Hana will guide you to some of the island's most beautiful sites, many of which are significant in local mythology. You can drive the road yourself or take a tour. The latter is a better option for nervous drivers because the winding road is very narrow. Along the way, you'll see towering waterfalls, miles of coastline, and gardens, and will have several opportunities for hiking or swimming. Food vendors are dotted along the highway, but it's a good idea to bring water and snacks with you. Stop at Halfway to Hana to sample some of its famous banana bread.

Hana Highway - Road to Hana reviews
We were gone for 12+ hours on this trip. So many things to do and see along the way! In that 12 hours we didn’t get to do everything we wanted to! I think we’ll be making another trip! more »
This was an amazing journey. It took over 10 hours, but was well worth it! One sees many beautiful waterfalls, gorgeous beaches, and unique vegetation. The road is very narrow and long! more »
The most scenic and beautiful drive ever! From volcanic landscapes to ocean view to mountain with lush trees, you see everything on this drive. Would recommend to go all the way around instead of turning back the same way if you are comfortable with driving.
An amazing all day activity. If you are in Maui this is a must do, prettiest views on the island. Black and red sand beaches, waterfalls, hikes, cliff views and more.
