For the duration of our small staycation with pals on Maui, we decided to dedicate one particular complete day to stunning Hana. Hana is a remote town with endless waterfalls and beautiful scenes – the great location to getaway and disconnect. (Truly – there’s hardly any net/cell service at all.)
It is a bit rough to get to even though – with hundreds of turns and narrow passages, make positive you give your self lots of time if you are going to take a look at. We advocate staying in Hana for 1-two nights if doable, as it is a extended day trip. (Pretty doable even though!) We left Lahaina at about six:30am, began down Hana Highway at about 7:30 am, and got to the finish of Hana at about 10:30am.
Strategies For The Road To Hana:
-The road to Hana is a extended, curvy journey. With 620 curves and various narrow bridges, do drive with caution on this highway. This is specifically correct if it has been raining.
-If you get even remotely carsick, take Dramamine. I get sick each and every single time we go to Hana, and each and every time we leave! 🙁
-Make positive you have a complete tank, as there is no gas station till Hana town. It is practically $six a gallon as soon as you get there!
A well known initially cease in Hana is Twin Falls, appropriate close to the commence of your winding drive. It is a good waterfall and swimming hole place that we visited previously!
Stop by The Bamboo Forest
There are a couple of bamboo forests that you are capable to take a look at in Hana. A well known one particular appropriate pass Twin Falls is positioned close to mile marker six.
We visited the bamboo forest at the quite finish of Hana in Kipahulu. The forest is positioned at Haleakala National Park, and we also got to see quite a few pools and waterfalls along the way, such as Waimoku Falls pictured beneath.
See The Black Sand Beach (Waianapanapa Beach) and Caves
Waianapanapa is one particular of our preferred areas in Hana. The location reminds me of Neverland from Peter Pan – it is totally stunning! The black sand beach is will have to see, while it is extra like pebbles than sand, and it hurts a bit to stroll on lol. Take caution at this beach, as the waves can get quite rough.
Waianapanapa Caves is lesser identified, but a quick stroll will lead you to some freshwater caves that you can swim in. It is fairly dark in there – a small eerie but very exciting!
Watch The Sunset At Venus Pools
A lowkey place that we discovered about from one particular of my pals, this remote spot has a giant brackish water pool, and a exciting 20 ft. rock to jump off of. It is a bit off the map, and you have to stroll by means of a field to get there, but it was a exciting location to finish the day in Hana with the sunset.
