Road to Hana: is a popular day trip if you are a Maui visitor. It is a short but long way to Hana. Is not that long aprox. 84 km + the distance from where you are to the start of the road… but what makes it long are the endless curves all along, and the many must stops at the popular milestops.
The first stop is Twin Falls: a 3 km hike to a waterfall (double falls). If you google road to Hana, you can find where the popular must seen stops are, and many blogs about it. We followed a few of them… most of the stops you can recognize them because there are just many cars parked there.
The one we liked the most, it was one that was not marked. After the botanic garden (which, except you are planning to dedicate a few hours walking around there, don’t go) we saw a black sand bay. We found a kind of hidden road, and head the beach. If you have a 4×4 car you can enter the beach, There was no one there, and we decided to picnic.*
After that, to some other waterfalls to have some baths and refresh ourselves. And last stop, the famous Wainapanapa black sand beach, Which is amazing.
It was a nice, long to Hana.
*There are no services on the road, make sure to take some food to picnic, and start with your full tank.
