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.

Tour 21A - Road to Hana Rainforest and Waterfall Fun Tour
I loved the black sand beach and surrounding lava cliffs areas. The guide/driver was concerned about our safety and our comfort as we traveled around the numerous curves. Also both driver and owner were very helpful when one of our party lost her hearing aids. Great service with our pickup special accommodations! Super rating!

Famous Road to Hana Waterfalls & Lunch by Mercedes Van
The ride was nice and clean and our guide was super friendly, the only thing is that at the very end we are all so tired we'd enjoy a bit of quiet but that's more a personal note. Tip: make sure to take the dramamine in advance, bring an extra snack just in case and be mentally prepared for the long drive.

Shaka Guide Maui "Classic" Road to Hana Audio Driving Tour
The pre-planning tips were spot on. Also, the music was surprisingly pleasant. The app was easy to use, the narrator struck just the right tone. We listened for hours and never tired of the interesting points. It was just a terrific accompaniment for the Hana Road!

Small-Group Road to Hana Luxury Limo-Van Tour with Helicopter Flight Reverse
Such a beautiful tour that ended with the grand finale of a double rainbow on the helicopter ride! Gayle our driving guide and Marco our helicopter pilot were both knowledgeable and fun and gave us such a memorable experience. Because the helicopter ride saved us time rather than driving back down from Hana, I was able to attend a wedding dinner event. This worked out perfect and so much better than the traditional 12 hour road to Hana tour.

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.
