The Road to Hana connects Kahului and the town of 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 Gulch, the Twin Falls waterfall, the Wailua Falls, the Pipiwai Trail to Waimoku Falls, the lush rainforests of the Haleakala National Park, the black sand beach at Wai’anapanapa State Park, Honomanu Bay, and the Hana Lava Tube (Ka'eleku Caverns).
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 full-day Road to Hana tour with a local guide. For a more glamorous option, you can also get a bird’s eye view on a helicopter tour.
