Road to Hana (Hana Highway)

Free admission
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.

Small Group Road to Hana Adventure Tour with Pickup
It’s a one time type of trip. Our guide Christine was very informative. She shared tons of island knowledge with us that we all used throughout the rest of our trip. It is a very long day but being a first timer to Maui its a its a must do. Truck was clean, stops were great and you can’t beat the views.

Maui Tour : Road to Hana Day Trip from Kahului
Wow!! What an amazing experience! Our tour guide, Malia was just perfect. She was so knowledgeable about the island and how much love she has for Hawaii. The views were perfect and we got to take many nice photos. The car was clean and spacious! We were happy that we got a tour bus as the roads were very narrow and curvy. Malia was so careful when driving and with my mom!! Thanks Maila!!!

Small-Group Road to Hana Full Circle Tour in Mercedes Van
Greatly organized tour. Our tour guide Roger was very pleasant, funny and highly informative. He showed up to pick us up at our hotel on time. Breakfast and lunch both were great (food options were provided ahead of time). Overall, a great experience and highly recommend this operator for a smooth experience and some great time.

Small Group Road to Hāna Tour 6 to 8 passengers
Taking the tour rather than driving ourselves was the best decision for this particular event. We were able to enjoy the scenery without having to worry about the traffic, tight turns, and one lane bridges! One of our best experiences in Maui. Group of 8, guide was great, water, snacks, and lunch were provided and it was delicious! I'd recommend it to anyone that asks.

Road to Hana Day Trip
Lisa was great. She really tried hard to make sure everyone got to see what they wanted. The Only down fall was that I wish she wore her mic. She would start talking and forget to put her mic to her mouth. Nothing could be heard in the very back. If she had just put the mic on instead of bringing the mic to her mouth when she wanted to talk (and remembered) that would have helped a lot.

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.
