The Road to Hana is a famous drive along the northeastern coast of the island of Maui between the towns Ho’okipa and Hana on the Hana Highway (HWY 36).
It is famous for its remarkable views and startlingly narrow road. As the highway winds around canyons, overlooks, and waterfalls, drivers are greeted with view after view of lush tropical forest and blue ocean.
