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.

The rainforest was amazing. Loved the black sand. Angie Sandy’s banana bread definitely worth the hype

Road to Hana Day Trip
This excursion is a must do if visiting Maui! The black sand beach was amazing and this tour was the perfect way to experience the local culture. Our tour guide Malia was great! She went above and beyond to ensure all of her guest's needs were met while maintaining safety. She was very knowledgable and provided a wonderful day on the Road to Hana!

Small Group Road to Hāna Tour 6 to 8 passengers
Our guide, Charmaine (forgive me if spelled incorrectly) made this trip so fun and pleasurable. She was very conscientious of our safety at all times and is one badass driver on the road to Hana. So glad we chose to do a guided tour and not attempted this ourselves. Some parts are really treacherous. Charmaine, being a lifelong resident of Maui, knows the island and its history so well. Thank you for a great trip and making sure we were all fed well.

Hāna and Beyond - Full Circle Rainforest Tour.
Glen was a great knowledgeable driver. Road to Hana was great, our bus was pretty packed with 13 people + Glen, thought it wouldn’t have been that full due to COVID. Wish there were more stops on the journey, basically the highlights were the waterfall and black sand beach. Could have gone without stopping at the fruit stand, was 50 minutes long, would rather have gone to another waterfall or beach. People did get motion sickness in our tour, so be prepared if you come.

Road to Hana Day Trip
Cannot rave enough about Kaili and his tour! The trip was so fun! He is truly a Road to Hana expert. The trip was very well thought out, he called out the clean bathrooms, and he is extremely knowledgeable. Would highly recommend and seek him out for future trips! #teamkaili

Small-Group Road to Hana Luxury Tour with Helicopter Flight return
Our experience is as fantastic. From start to finish the tour was even more than we expected. Our tour guide Scott made everything even more memorable. He was great at engaging everyone, helping with pictures and ensuring everyone’s safety. He really made the trip that much better. Would HIGHLY recommend. The day is broken up nicely with the fantastic helicopter tour on the way back.

Small-Group Road to Hana Luxury Tour with Helicopter Flight return
I feel the lunch area needs to be changed. It's not a very comfortable nor clean area to eat. The tour guides Scott and Mike, pilot was awesome.

Small-Group Road to Hana Luxury Tour
The Road to Hana was breathtaking, but Temptation Tours and especially our tour guide Marty made it a once in a lifetime experience. The food was much more than I could eat and the stops and Marty’s stories were superb.

Maui Luxury Full Circle Road to Hana Waterfalls & Lunch
Quinn was an excellent guide in this tour. Extremely knowledgeable, by knowledgeable he knows many specific facts, not general conversational comments. He kept the van engaged for the 10 hours engaging everyone. Always ensured comfort and kept schedule without being rushed. He says all his tours are unique and I believe it. He clearly loves his job. They start early, which actually makes this trip even better. Deal with the early rise in order to have the best experience. Well done!!

Maui Tour : Road to Hana Tour from Lahaina
You need to experience all sides of Maui, and you can do it with this road trip. We got to see waterfalls, Black Sand Beach, black bamboo, wild goats, excellent ocean views, and picnic at a state park. Our driver/guide, Jay, was exceptionally kind, always asking if we needed anything, stopping to point out the tiniest of details, and giving us plenty of time to take picture.

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.
