DRIVING THE ROAD TO HANA in Maui, Hawaii – best stops to see waterfalls, a black sand beach & more!

By November 29, 2018 4 Comments

During my recent trip to Maui, Hawaii, I drove the Road to Hana and made many awesome stops along the way. This drive really is about the journey and not the destination. There are so many beautiful places to pull over and things to see, from cascading waterfalls to red sand beaches, black sand beaches and a bamboo forest.

These are the mile markers for the places I stopped:
22: Pua’a Ka’a Falls
32: Wai’anapanapa State Park (Black Sand Beach)
34: Hana Town / hidden Red Sand Beach
45: Wailua Falls
Last stop: Ohe’o Gulch / Seven Sacred Pools
2: Twin Falls

My gear:

    Hi Nicole. Again, love the video. It’s amazing the quality of your images and amazing drone footage. Love Maui already and never been. How did you find it? Photography wise how was it for you? Thankfully you got the hat (cap) back. Most of the times I wear one so might not follow your advise on that 😁.
    Love your work and will be finding you on your website and in any other media 😜 best wishes
