Create an itinerary including Hana Highway - Road to Hana
One of the area's most famous highways, Hana Highway - Road to Hana is about the journey rather than the destination. Your 84 km (52 mi) trip between Kahului and Hana will guide you to some of the island's most beautiful sites, many of which are significant in local mythology. You can drive the road yourself or take a tour. The latter is a better option for nervous drivers because the winding road is very narrow. Along the way, you'll see towering waterfalls, miles of coastline, and gardens, and will have several opportunities for hiking or swimming. Food vendors are dotted along the highway, but it's a good idea to bring water and snacks with you. Stop at Halfway to Hana to sample some of its famous banana bread. Use our Huelo travel itinerary planner to arrange your visit to Hana Highway - Road to Hana and other attractions in Huelo.

  • This is an amazing yet very crazy drive. It is not for the faint of heart, seriously. I loved it, but it’s not for everyone…. including my wife 😊 The roads can get really narrow and curvy. You...

  • Very busy road and traffic moves rather slow. Do not stop at Garden of Eden. It is way overpriced and a tourist trap. There is not much parkinfg available and not many gas stations on the way.

  • Overrated. If you’re driving a Chevy suburban be read for 4 hours of hell as you take this road one inch at a time and god forbid there’s rain you WILL notice the traction control kick on as you skid your way up every steep hill and pray that there’s guard rail around the next one lane turn as drivers don’t yield and blast through, coming at you head on and making you grateful for a minute that your 6,000lb SUV will obliterate them and you’ll be safe, slightly making the stress of driving a massive car on this road. You’ve been warned.
  • So much to see! Lots of attractions throughout the trip. I will say driving this road is BRUTAL!!! You may need a motion sickness pill! the bridges are all only one way traffic so you have to stop for oncoming traffic. There's like 50 bridges.ALSO road is narrow so you definitely have to be cautious. If you do take this trip just pull over to let traffic behind you pass as some drive pretty fast. Give yourself plenty of time to drive this road. Download the gypsy app, it gives you all the history and information of the road along with all its attractions.
  • Really pretty drive with lots of little waterfalls along the way. The whole drive took us about 2 hours or so and it will take more time if you plan to stop frequently. Definitely a must do in Maui!
  • The north road to Hana is really not that bad. And all the stops we did were awesome. We used the guided Shaka app and would recommend. The south of Hana part, especially after the pools is ROUGH and scary. The other side of the island has a scary one lane road that doesn’t get the bad press this road does and it made this trip a walk in the park by comparison.
  • We did it backwards and it was fun. Can be done in a compact car but don’t if 🌧 forecast. Let the locals on their trucks pass you, pack up snacks. Not all stops are worth it, be selective
