State Highway 360, Hana, Hawaii, 96713

The Basics

The Road to Hana connects the towns of Kahului and Hana, hugging the coast for a distance of 64 miles. It’s famous for its difficult driving terrain and spectacular scenery. Highlights along the route include the seven sacred pools of Oheo, the Twin Falls waterfall, the black sand beach at Wai’anapanapa State Park, Honomanu Bay, and the Hana Lava Tube.

Driving along the route can be challenging for more inexperienced drivers, so if you’re not confident or don’t feel like spending an entire day behind the wheel, consider joining a guided full-day tour. For a more glamorous option, you can also get a bird’s eye view on a helicopter tour.

Incredible views and stories
It was an incredible experience and Kaipo was an amazing tour guide. He made the trip outstanding. The information about the islands and the spots we went to were so great to hear. Also we went to not only the main stops but several more that were highly recommended thanks to Kaipo. He was friendly, funny and so outgoing that we couldn’t have asked for a better experience!!!

Maui Luxury Full Circle Road to Hana Waterfalls & Lunch
This was an amazing tour into Hana Valley. Very comfortable with stops every now and then to see beautiful falls and highlight was black sand beach. Beauty of this place is out of the world. Our tour leader Tom was a great host and super safe driver. He gave nice commentary on what was where and best was his safety instructions that were very valuable. Lunch was really good sandwich wigh fruit and Hawaiian drink. Aloha and Mahalo

Deluxe Halfway to Hana: Private Tour from Kahului
The tour operator went out of his way to accommodate our needs. He was great . That being said; Do NOT try to enter without a hard copy of your negative CoVid test. We were denied entry & had to return to Oahu because we couldn’t produce our PDF result in a half hour! They also quarantined us.

Epic Road to Hana Waterfall Adventure
This was such a fun experience. Our guide, Alexandra was phenomenal and this was my 4 teenagers favorite Maui excursion. The kids loves it more than the beaches. The hike was beautiful but not extremely challenging for our group. If you want a truly tropical experience, don’t miss this.

Road to Hana Adventure
Wayne was amazing. He interacted with us from the moment he picked us up to the moment we departed. He gave us so much information about Hana road.Lunch at Hes knowledge of the island made all the difference for our trip. Hana Farms was great. Lunch was delightful. Although If you have back or neck issues like I do please beware. I would be very cautious due to the windy and bumpy road. It is a long day so please be prepared.

The Road to Hana starts in Kahului, just west of Maui’s airport. If you’re driving yourself, pay attention, and follow the information on road signs. Some tours include hotel pick up. Helicopter tours usually take visitors by car one way and return by helicopter.

When to Get There

Whether you’re driving yourself or joining a tour, it’s best to start out early; even though the road is less than 70 miles long, it can take up to 6 hours to drive due to traffic, blind turns, and sightseeing stops along the way.

Walk Through the Hana Lava Tube

Lava tubes—natural tunnels formed by cooling volcanic lava flows—are only found in a few places in the world, including Hawaii. Explore the Hana Lava Tube (officially called the Ka’eleku Caverns), with flashlights to see about a third of a mile of unique geological formations, including “lavacicles” and a famous area that looks like molten chocolate.
