Throughout Hawaii, there are destinations, sites, and attractions that date back for many years, connecting our modern life with the less advanced days that preceded us. One of the most important sites on Maui is the famous Hana Highway, the winding stretch of road that begins in Kahului and heads east to the quaint town of Hana. Along the way, there are so many incredible sites to see and experience, making this one of the top things to do on the island. Complete your vacation to the island with a Maui Tour of the historic Road to Hana and get to know the island.
There is little reason to wonder why Maui is considered the best of the Hawaiian Islands. Once you’ve spent any time here, you’ll see why. The beaches are so beautiful and a great place to spend a day. There are many great activities to take part in, and so much history all around the island. But, it’s the Road to Hana that is the top attraction on the island, and the best part of the highway, is this adventure lasts for an entire day.
The Hana Highway is not your typical road, and isn’t just a place to drive your car. The Hana Highway is designated as a National Historic Landmark that has been in use since the early 1900’s, originally used for plantation workers traveling between West Maui and Hana. In those days, sugarcane production was a leading industry on the island and fields of cane were located near Hana. The production of sugarcane is no longer an industry but the highway remains, and is the only method of travel to the eastside of the island, and the chance for you to get to see some of the most remote parts of the island.
All along the Road to Hana, travelers will find many scenic lookouts and hidden features that show off the natural beauty and diversity of the island. In total, the highway stretches 52 miles, winding its way around the mountains, with over 600 hairpin curves and almost 60 bridges, many that have been in use since the original construction of the highway.
During a trip around the historic highway, hidden secrets of Maui are found, bringing to life the beauty of the island. The best (and safest) experience around the highway is on a Road to Hana guided tour, with an expert tour guide navigating the complexities of the road, allowing you to sit back and relax while enjoying the sites from the luxury of a deluxe tour bus. But you’ll do more than just sit and watch, you will get out and experience the island at a variety of stops, including:
- Wai’anapanapa Black Sand Beach
- Koki Red Sand Beach
- Wailua Falls
- Seven Sacred Pools
- Ohe’o Gulch
- Puohokamoa Falls
- Kaupo Store
