Visit Maui: Road To Hana Tour Review
A Road to Hana tour is probably one of the more popular tours that visitors to Maui want to go on because this is the most beautiful way to see the countryside. There are more things to see during this awesome drive and they are all along one road.
A typical Road to Hana tour is about 12 hours, so it’s a full day of fun and begins with you being picked up in a luxury vehicle or van and being taken to the historical town called Paia. Here you will find all kinds of ethnic art, jewelry, crafts and clothing. They also have antique shops and the entire town is engulfed with pineapple and sugar cane fields.
Your tour continues and your Road to Hana guide starts to point out places of interest all along the North Shore. You will see perfectly white sand filled beaches with waves that top 15 feet, easily.
Next, you will arrive at Twin Falls, which is one of the best Road to Hana waterfalls your eyes will ever see. However, if you choose to, you can hike to see even more waterfalls. If you prefer to stay at Ho’okipa Beach Park, you can simply sample some of their popular refreshments including sugar cane juice.
The next stop includes a journey through Keanae, which is one of the best places to visit in Hawaii, although it is not very well travelled. In fact, this is a town where time seems to have stood still. It was created by lava flow and there is a church there that was constructed by using lava rocks and mortar made from coral. There, the natives will offer you banana bread as you spy on a few sea turtles.
Your Road to Hana tour continues with exceptional views at a place called Keanae Lookout. The views are stellar and you can see for miles as you gaze along the peninsula complete with rows of taro fields. Just as soon as your eyes seem to get full of magnificent beauty, you will head over to Honokalani Beach, where the sand is as black as coal.
Spending time here is one of the best things to do in Maui because the beach is nestled between lava cliffs and the way the san feels is sublime. Unlike regular sand, this is lava pebbles, smooth and tiny. You will be able to explore sea caves and even a few lava tubes that are there as well.
Your Road to Hana tour also includes spending time in Hana, of course. This town pays homage to Kaiwio Pele, which is translated as Pele’s bones. This is a very important part of Hawaiian history that should be treasured. You will also spend time on Hamoa Beach, which actually has grey sand that is fine to the touch.
Your final stop on your Road to Hana tour includes a visit to Tedeschi Vineyards, where you will sample a few of their specialty wines and learn the history of winemaking in this area. Since this is the only winery in Maui, this is a great way to end your day.
