Be sure to visit Mana Foods, Charley’s, and Mandala Creations for an authentic Paia experience.
- Watch the surfers at world-famous Ho’okipa Lookout A famous spot for windsurfing, Ho’okipa Beach Park is located in Paia on the Road to Hana. The park is also known as Ho’okipa Lookout, and is a popular destination for watching the surfers, hanging out, or enjoying the scenery.
- Hang out with sea turtles at the North Shore Hang out with the Honu, the Hawaiian word for “sea turtles,” on Maui’s North Shore beaches. Get up close and personal with the Honu and you’ll be amazed at the size of these giant turtles.
- Swing from jungle vines at Kaumahina Kaumahina State Wayside Park is a great rest stop on your Road to Hana Private Tour, complete with picnic tables, a public bathroom, and lush greenery, including Tarzan-size vines. With a scenic view of Hana and the ocean, Kaumahina is also a popular spot for memorable photo-ops.
- Set your sights on Waikani Falls Upper Waikani Falls, also known as “Three Bears Waterfalls,” is a breathtaking stop on the Road to Hana, and a must-see on any Maui waterfall tour. Check out the lush greenery and three individual falls about ½ mile past mile marker 19.
- Discover Upper and Lower Puohokamoa Falls Puohokamoa is one of the most accessible falls on the Hana Highway. Located near mile marker 12, there are two impressive falls, Upper and Lower Puohokamoa Falls. Upper Puohokamoa is a small waterfall that is about 30 feet high. You can get a view of it from the nearby Garden of Eden. Lower Puohokamoa Falls is a much larger waterfall and roughly 200 feet. The cascading falls provide a visual treat.
- Get a taste of Maui’s iconic banana bread Everyone on Maui has a favorite banana bread, but Aunty Sandy’s is known as one of the best. Make a stop at her famous stand on the Keanae Peninsula on the Road to Hana, and decide for yourself if it’s as good as they say.
