Hawaii: Hana Highway

Hawaii: Hana Highway Also known as the Road to Hana, the 64-mile Hana Highway connects Paia and Hana on Maui’s lush northeast coast. It’s a leisurely drive, thanks to multiple one-lane portions of the road, hundreds of hairpin turns, and inviting waysides that invite Aloha State travelers to pull over for a picnic, swim, or hike. Bonus Drive: “Most people turn back at Hana, but I recommend continuing the adventure along the southern slope of Haleakala,” says Virtuoso travel advisor Larry Klein. “A good portion of the road is one lane and either rough pavement or dirt, but it’s worth it. The views are unreal – both of the ocean and the volcano because of the scale of the terrain.” Home Base: Most of Maui’s best resorts are located on the west coast near the towns of Wailea and Kapalua – both are about a 30-to-60-minute drive from the start of the Hana Highway. The sleek oceanfront villas at the Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort have private pools, gourmet kitchens, and direct beach access. Pro Tip: “Bring water bottles and snacks,” Klein says. “There are fruit stands and some other vendors, but no real restaurants to stop at for a meal.”
