Road To Hana Sights For Active People

The Road to Hana is one of the most enjoyable things to see on Maui. This road stretches across the island, and people often drive it, stopping along the way to see various sights. There are also tour companies that organize private tours along the road. In fact, there are so many tours that you may not know which one to choose! A good strategy is to look at the stops on each tour and choose a Road to Hana private tour that stops at attractions you're most interested in. Here are some attractions you'll want to make a top priority if you're an active, athletic person.

Twin Falls

Twin Falls are two stunning waterfalls that tumble into a pool where you can go for a swim. There's a short trail that takes you to the lower falls, but if you're up for more of a challenge, you can take the longer, upper trail to the upper falls. From the upper falls, you can get an incredible view of the water and landscape down below.

Upper Waikani Falls

If a tour stops at the Waikani Falls, that's definitely the Road to Hana tour you want to be on! These falls are hidden away among rocks and forest. You have to climb down a pretty treacherous trail to reach them, but it is so worth the effort. The trail is not long, but it is steep, rocky, and not for the faint of heart. The payoff view of the waterfall, however, makes it worth the effort.

Hana Lava Tube

There are lava tubes all over the island of Maui, but they are not all as easily accessible as this one. The Hana Lava Tube is not far from the road. In fact, there is a parking area right next to it where your tour guide will likely park. You can simply stop and look at the lava tube if you want, but there is also a maze that's fun to work your way through if you have the energy.

Wai'anapanapa State Park

Wai'anapanapa State Park is known for its black sand beaches. If you're feeling tired at this point, you can just take a walk on the beach and relax. But there is also a longer trail that will take you to some nearby caves. It's worth exploring if you're feeling up to it.

If you're an active person, you'll love these tour stops on the Road to Hana. Maui is sure to be memorable.
