Hana Highway

Get your motor running on one of the world’s most epic drives, connecting Kahului with Hana in eastern Maui. This 83-kilometer (52-mile) scenic stretch actually takes about 2.5 hours to drive, thanks to 62 twists in the road as it winds through rainforests and past waterfalls, pools and seascapes. You shouldn’t rush a good thing, though, so plan at least half a day to do it properly. Aficionados know to slow it way down and overnight in Hana, so they can linger at places like the Twin Falls, Ke’anae Peninsula, Garden of Eden arboretum, and the black sand beach at Waiʻanapanapa State Park. Water babies should budget plenty of time for Hāmoa Beach and Ho’okipa Beach Park.
