Hana Highway 

Hop on the next flight to Maui, Hawaii, to escape winter's chill and bask in warmth and sun. Then adventure the island with your significant other, hunting for waterfalls and the region's many colorful sand beaches. A romantic drive on the the Road to Hana offers the perfect fun-in-the-sun adventure.

Visitors have said that the road to Hana is about the journey, not the destination. The full drive takes a day, and we highly recommend not rushing it. During your road trip, you’ll want to stop off at these places: 

  • Spot sea turtles sunbathing on the shore at Ho’okipa State Park in Paia. 
  • Sneak at kiss overlooking two stunning waterfalls at Twin Falls.
