The Road to Hana is a scenic highway that twists and bends past cascading waterfalls through lush rainforests, bamboo jungles, and eucalyptus groves down the islands Eastern shore. With so much to see along this 55 mile journey, Polynesian Adventure Activities has curated the best stops and views to see on our Road to Hana tours.

Paia Town

Known as a “hippie-surfer town” since the 1970s, Paia Town is the “windsurfing capital of the world” This laid back town consists of only one main road and is filled with an assortment of charming coffee shops, restaurants and art galleries. Keep an eye out for local resident, Willie Nelson who is often seen here when not on tour.

Waianapanapa State Park and Beach

Waianapanapa in Hawaiian means “glistening water”, and you are sure to see that and so much more on this stop along the Road to Hana. Waianapanapa is a black sand beach filled with lava tubes, sea arches, and stunning panoramic views of the rugged East Maui coastline. The turquoise water stands against the black sand and bright green foliage surrounding the beach making for a truly gorgeous stop on your trip.

Kaumahina State Park

Just past mile marker 12 on the Hana Highway we meet Kaumahina State Park. This large forested rest stop offers scenic views of the northeast Maui coastline and a spectacular view of the Ke’anae Peninsula and village.

Keanae Valley Lookout

Spend time admiring the gorgeous taro fields at the Ke’anae Valley Lookout.This lookout is known for its amazing views of waterfalls, the Wailua Peninsula and even the rim of Haleakala. The coastline here is extremely rocky but the spectacular views make it well worth the stop, on your trek along the Road to Hana.

Pua’a Ka’a State Park

Further down the Hana Highway, we stop at Pua’a Ka’a State Wayside Park. Here, weather permitting visitors will get a chance to swim in a waterfall-fed pool. Keep your eye out for the mongooses that hang out in this park and call it home.
