Things to do in Hana
The road to Hana is one of the most popular and iconic trips in Maui. Hana is a quite, scenic town in East Maui that offers a more authentic Hawaiian experience for tourists. Hana is mainly reached mainly via the winding and famously Hana Highway along Maui's northern shore. Hana is 52 miles from Kahului and the drive can take two to four hours to complete because of narrow one-lane bridges, hairpin turns, and stops to see breathtaking island views.
SpeediShuttle also offers Road to Hana tours through IMI Tours. Book a tour to historic Hana today.

Hasegawa General Store
Hasegawa General Store is the best place to stop, stock up, or hit the ATM on the Road to Hana. The Hasegawa family has operated this general store in Hana since 1910, and here you’ll find a range of goods, including local food, produce, books & convenience items. There are also items marked as “Uniquely Hana.”
East Maui Taro Festival
The most Hawaiian town throws the most Hawaiian party: the East Maui Taro Festival. Tarofest includes a taro pancake breakfast, poi making, hula dancing, lauhala weaving, kapa/tapa cloth making, 20 Food Booths, and tons of Hawaiian music. Held on the last weekend in April, it’s a must see if you’re in Hana.
Located between the 10-11 mile marker on the Hana Highway, the Puohokamoa Falls is actually two waterfalls: the Upper Puohokamoa & Lower Puohokamoa Falls. The Upper Puohokamoa Falls was once a favorite stop on the Road to Hana due to it being one of the most accessible waterfalls on Maui. However, it is now located on private property and fenced off from the public. However, you can still take great photos of the Upper Puohokamoa Falls from the Garden of Eden Arboretum.
Perhaps the most beautiful beach on east Maui, Hamoa Beach is a crescent-shaped beach just a few miles beyond Hana town. There isn’t a lifeguard on duty, so make sure you follow all rules and signage. Hamoa is open to the public, and because the beach lies beyond the point that most day-trippers venture, the beach not as crowded as might be expected.
Wai'anapanapa State Park
Near the 32-mile marker on East Maui's Road to Hana, walk along the ancient "King's Trail" at Waianapanapa State Park. The only black-sand beach in Maui brings in plenty of tourists as well as its lava blowholes, legendary freshwater cave, and scenic picnic area. If you’re Hana bound, this is a must stop spot.
