The Best Road to Hana Tours
This full-day Road to Hana tour provides breakfast, a picnic lunch (both with vegetarian and gluten-free options), and runs every day of the week. Get the most amazing photos at spectacular waterfalls, travel through many rainforests, and marvel at the Hawaiian bridges and coastal views.
Some of the many notable spots you’ll see include:
Hoʻokipa Beach Park Lookout
Just past our favorite little hippie town of Paia, Hoʻokipa is one of the more consistent surf breaks on Maui, known for continuously producing some of the world’s best surfers due to its large and challenging conditions. The cliffy lookout point allows for impressive views of the beach and a close-up look at the massive waves (in season) and brave north shore surfers.
Upper Waikani Falls – Three Bears Falls
One of the most picturesque waterfalls, Upper Waikani Falls offers a close-up view of waterfalls right along the road. It’s often also referred to as Three Bears, due to the way the water falls down the cliff face, and you’ll also drive by Lower Waikani, which can be truly impressive if it’s been raining upstream.
The Keanae Peninsula is steeped in rich history and has changed very little over the centuries. View the raw energy of the ocean as it strikes jagged lava rock formations, get some of the more incredible photos of palms and coastline, and see the REAL UNTOUCHED HAWAII you’ve been looking for!
Wai’anapanapa State Park
If you’ve never been to a Black Sand Beach, you’re in for a treat. Even if you have been to one, this is probably the most beautiful one in the world. Ranging from pebbles to fine sand, the contrast between the jet-black sand and the turquoise ocean and white foam offers memories you’ll never forget. Explore the ocean caves along with freshwater pools while hiking around the ancient Hawaiian grounds. This area is also filled with history and Hawaiian legends your guide will happily share with you.
Much like the rest of East Maui, Hana Town has changed very little in centuries. You’re likely to miss it if you don’t pay attention. This tiny town is as quaint and charming as you’ll find anywhere across our islands.
Much like Three Bears, Wailua Falls is usually the waterfall photo you see when looking up the Road to Hana. It’s AMAZING! Again, another waterfall directly next to the road, making for easy photos.
Charles Lindbergh’s Grave
Located at the Palapala Hoʻomau Congregational Church, you’ll be able to pay respects to the most famous aviator at his resting place. Charles Lindbergh fell in love with Maui and made Hana his home for his final years. Take heart in knowing that the Hana of his time is almost identical to the Hana you have been visiting. The ocean views from this area are pretty spectacular as well.

What a great trip! Our driver knew EVERYTHING about Maui and the many spots along the road to Hana. We’ve driven to Hana and back before, but this was way better. My husband didn’t have to drive, so he loved it too. Learning all the historical and cultural tidbits made each location much more interesting. I relish in ancient lore and legends, so that part was particularly fun for me. Our group were fast friends by the end of the trip. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
Hello, I loved my entire experience on Maui, but the part that stands out is when we took the Road to Hana tour. We stopped along the way, talked to one of the islanders, we learned about his tattoo, and how it was done using a sharks tooth and local berries, and I think he said he traded a pig for it too! We are coming back this fall or winter, cant wait to show my daughter “Paradise”!
I would do it again

Our trip along the beautiful road to Hana was magic! To be honest, I was a little disappointed when arriving on this island. I thought Hawaii would be waterfall after waterfall with a beach in between. I didn’t quite understand how big the island is and that you need to drive to these places. Otherwise, the waterfall would be paved over! Glad to see that you care enough about the east portion of the island to keep it pristine and natural. It was everything I wished Hawaii would be! I could sit at those waterfalls for days… Dream from chilly Nebraska….

Now I know why they call it Heavenly Hana. So beautiful. Thank you so very much for being our guide and showing us all the waterfalls (especially the Puaa pig ones. That was a great spot to stop.) Thank you so much!

I’m so glad you opened up again! We’ve been going to your luau each year we come (accept last year) and it’s been 5 times now. We didn’t think we could go, but really glad you opened. We snagged tickets as soon as we heard and were really happy with how you set it up. Much roomier and better for our kids too. Thanks

Thank you for stopping when I wanted to! I was the photographer that wanted to capture all the different falls and coastlines. You were patient as I shot flowers and vines, and I’m sorry for being a pain.

After hearing about the negative outcry from the communities along the road to Hanna, I’m really glad we did a tour instead of driving ourselves. Our guide was a local and also thanked us. With van tours, they don’t have as many cars on the road, which makes their “Highway” much easier to navigate. We want to be respectful of the people, and everyone we met along the way were a delight!
Jayne Fry –
Thank for your guidance and knowledge. You made our trip so much more than pretty visits along the road.

The last two times we came to your island we did not go on this tour. We heard great things but we also heard that it was quite a big trip and had winding roads. I think those that don’t want to drive a road like this are not adventurous. We certainly are, at least now we are! The jungles and small communities we saw along the way have to be the most beautiful places on Earth. When I need a happy place to think about, during a hard day, I’ll jump back into my seat by the big window on your tour van and watch the ocean cliffs, waterfalls, giant plants, and old churches. Thank you so very much!
