Discover the quintessential road of HawaiiDiscover this route
Hana Highway is considered one of the most scenic routes in the world, taking in amazing views of the coastline around Maui and the tropical rainforests inland. With its numerous serpentines and thrilling hairpin bends the narrow road is sweeping but also demanding.
The lush landscape is sprawled with cascading waterfalls and steep drops overlooking the magnificent ocean. Luckily the road offers plenty of opportunity to pull over to take in the breathtaking vistas of the second largest island of Hawaii. The scenic road winds from Kahului to Hana, before descending down to the volcanic landscapes and rain forests around Haleakalā National Park. The bedazzling waterfalls of the Seven Sacred Pools at Ohe’o is the official end of the trip, although an exploration of the National Park with its awe-inspiring bamboo forests is also a unique experience and worth a little hike, so consider this before returning to Kahului taking the same route.
Please note: Road closures can be frequent so plan you trip ahead.
