Meandering along Maui’s eastern coastline is the famous Road to Hāna, which offers over 50 miles of incredible island views.

With a series of 600 bends & 54 bridges, the road leads through verdant landscapes of lush rainforests, native settlements, rugged coastline & cascading waterfalls. It’s a twisty pathway to the quaint and peaceful town of Hāna, once home to the ali’i, Hawaiian Royalty. With especially stunning seascape views, a journey on Maui’s most famous road is one you will always remember.

On a Private Tour, the entire family can enjoy the ride. No one needs to navigate the hairpin turns, figure out the best places to stop or search for hidden treasures along the way. That’s our job. Leading the way is our specialty.

In addition to exploring the beauty of the island we invite you to forge an intimate connection with your very own personal tour guide. Receive undivided attention with space created for an intimate experience. Enrich your journey with stories of old & visions of new. Consider mythology and study history. Learn botany & examine geology. Expose yourself to period music & cultural food. Conclude the day with a new friend and deeper understanding of who Hawaiians are and what Hawaii is all about.

We offer several different routes that can be catered to your vacation needs. Please find sample itineraries below. These inclusions are based on a semi-active tour. This means light trail walking and perhaps swimming.

Some envision a scenic experience while others seek action & adventure! Know that we will mold and modify until it’s just right for you.

Full Length Description

As your journey begins, we pass the swaying jurassic grasses of Maui’s sugar cane fields. Stories of Maui’s plantation era will bring these giant grass fields to life with rich history. Our first stop is Ho’okipa Beach Park to take in a bird’s eye view of this  world class surfing and wind surfing hot spot. Then we will visit the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles basking on the shoreline. Next, the rolling countryside of Huelo gives way to thick bamboo forest. We stop at the vibrantly colored rainbow eucalyptus for some tree hugging before moving deeper into the winding turns of the Road to Hāna. Along this shady curving road, we see streams and waterfalls packed with ferns, moss, fruit trees, birds and bamboo. We may stop for a swim in waterfall pool (depends on strength of flow).  Then visit fruit stands for shave ice & Maui’s famous Banana Bread.

The apex of this tour is our visit to the Keanae penninsula. We will drive down to this traditional Hawaiian village known for its taro fields. Tended to by mahi’ai (cultivators) in the same fashion as their Hawaiian ancestors. Visit an original stone missionary church built in 1856; the lone building to survive the devastating tsunami of 1946. End with a drive to Wailua, the village next door, featuring the best waterfall the road has to offer. A grand, three-tiered falls named Waikani. If you wish, we can take a short, adventurous trail to the base of the falls.

The beauty and majesty of nature on this tour is stunning. Yet the depth of the tour comes from the stories and history woven in along the way. We invite you to come, enjoy the ride with us.

Next, we head to an underground path through an ancient lava flow.  With the use of headlamps we observe many interesting features making it a must-see for those interested in caves, geology & Hawaiian mythology. Here, we learn about Pele, the Goddess of Fire, creator of the Hawaiian Islands and a well-known deity often referred to as Ka wahine ʻai honua, “The earth-eating woman”.

Do you believe in dessert before lunch? If yes, then we will park at Coconut Glen’s to fully explore the culinary delights of candy & ice cream made from Maui coconuts.

As we glide closer to Hāna town, we stop at Wai’anapanapa Beach Park. The translation for Wai’anapanapa is “glistening water” or “water flashing rainbow hues”.  The name is perfect as the powerful contrast between the black, pebble lava field and the deep blue-greens of the ocean are dazzling. A path leads us to a naturally made lava and powerful blowhole. The cove-shaped black sand beach opens to an ocean cave on the east side that can be traveled through to the ocean. Here we can dip in the ocean, swim through the sea caves or just enjoy the glorious tropical beauty at this world famous Maui beach park.

Next, is the Nahiku Marketplace, a mini-village of tropical delights. This is a great place to enjoy local-style cuisine such as smoked fish, coconut shrimp or baked ‘ulu (breadfruit)–so delicious! Find a variety of locally made gifts, including rare shell and semiprecious stone jewelry, spiritual icons, woodwork, glass art, paintings and more.

Our final destination is Hāna town. An area once favored by the Ali’i (royalty) and the seat of power for the entire island in the 15th Century. Learn about the metamorphis from these native times through the plantation era ending in modern day.

Here we can dip in the sea, swim through the caves or just enjoy the glorious tropical beauty at this world famous Maui beach park. 

Next, is the Nahiku Marketplace, a mini-village of tropical delights. This is a great place to enjoy local-style cuisine such as smoked fish, coconut shrimp or baked ‘ulu (breadfruit)–so delicious! Find a variety of locally made gifts, including rare shell and semiprecious stone jewelry, spiritual icons, woodwork, glass art, paintings and more.

Following Nahiku is Hāna town. An area once favored by the Ali’i (royalty) and the seat of power for the entire island in the 15th Century. Learn about the metamorphisis of this native fishing village through the plantation era ending in modern time. 

Just beyond Hāna the road becomes narrow and rugged. The dripping jungle of Kipahulu gives way to the barren lava fields of Maui’s hidden side; the road less traveled.  The leeward part of Haleakalā is exposed; grass and shrubs scattered over jagged lava rock. We see canyon formations where ferocious wind has carved its way into the land. In this area, Maui’s most recent lava flow is still exposed and cinder cones are still in tact. Observe the stark contrast between the wet & dry sides of the volcano. Next, we climb up high on the shoulder of the mountain to get a birds eye view of Maui’s coastline and outer lying islands.  Then, as the sun sets, relax, reflect, or nap as we take you down the mountain back towards our original starting point.
