The Fantastic Road to Hana
The Road to Hana should be on the top of everyone’s bucket list and is accessible from a short drive from any of the Maui Man condo rentals. This 64-mile magnificent adventure takes about 2.5 hours with no stops hugging Maui’s East coast line the whole way. The route includes rainforest-studded highways that open up to exotic, varied colored beaches from black to red sand with waves crashing against the lava-built rock. On the island-side of the road, green, lush forests and waterfalls pepper the road filled with exotic plants, colorful flowers, and unique wildlife that can only be seen in these areas.
To begin the journey, the Road to Hana can be accessed from either the North or South end of the Hana Highway. Be sure to start early, as this is a full-day trip and you still cannot see it all. If you didn’t bring snacks and supplies with you for the outing, you’ll want to stop in Pa’ia to fill up on food and gas, as it is the last reliable stop. Several fruit stands are scattered throughout the drive, but there is no guarantee they will be open.
Once you are on the road, you will have to decide which magical stops you want to enjoy. If you try to stop at all the beautiful wonders on the Hana Highway, you will feel rushed to finish by dark. Instead, it is suggested to pick two or three spots per trip and maximize your time soaking up the beauty of those locations to make lasting memories.
Some of the highlights of the Road to Hana include walking through the Hana lava tube around the 31 mile marker, viewing the spectacular Wailua Falls at the 45 mile marker, and exploring the black sand beach at the Wai'anapanapa State Park.

Careful planning for your Road to Hana adventure will help you have the best trip possible. With limited resources along the way, staying in a Maui Man condo vs a hotel, will give you the space and refrigeration needs to prepare your meals and pack for the perfect experience.
