I have enjoyed watching the amazing windsurfers from the safety of the beautiful shore.

Been here several times, it's a great start to the Hana Hwy drive. Ho'okipa Beach Park is the place to watch wind surfers get air and tackle some rough surf when the wind is up. Two sections - one at beach level and one up above give you some great views.

We drove the road to Hana and past Hana around the southern end on brand new pavement. Beautiful beaches, waterfalls, and historic sites. One of the most beautiful drives in America or in the World. Make sure you get out to explore or the curves will make you dizzy! Enjoy!

The Hana Highway! This should be on everyone's short list of scenic drives. 64 total miles (approximately 52 from Kahului to Hana) through mostly lush tropical rainforest hugging the steep slopes of Maui's northeast shore. It is slow and winding with amazing views as you pass the 600+ curves and 59 bridges (most just one lane wide). I have done it twice...both times a number of years ago. But it is something you don't forget. Don't miss Waianapanapa State Park, its trails and wonderful black sand beach. But the highlight for me was swimming in the clear blue freshwater cave pools (just be prepared for the very cold water that has flowed down from Haleakala). Hana also has a red sand beach and the beautiful Hamoa Beach, where we boogie boarded in large waves. Great memories!

Cool drive nice trails along the way, be warned though the drive is Sketchy but amazing and worth it. I would say it's a Maui must do.

Absolutely breathtaking drive with beautiful hikes, waterfalls, and beaches. A must if you are on Maui!

Many very interesting stops, such as black sand beaches. Winding road with lots and lots of turns. Feels very very long.

Very easy walk down the rocks to the beach. Large sea turtles down on the one end, didn't realize they would be that large. Tons of surfers today which was cool to watch. Good breeze while down by the water.

The road to Hana is the best Maui has to offer...54 one lane bridges and 280 hairpin turns. There are mudslides and flash floods often, so be weary in the rain. Hana is absolute heaven: bamboo forests, black sand beach, red sand beach, lava tubes, and waterfalls. Fruit grows everywhere here.

Turtles come up on the beach here. The windsurfers are cool to watch.

Worth the sketchy drive for sure. Make sure to stop in the Bamboo forest and do the hike that takes you to four different waterfalls, it will blow your mind.

Beautiful views. You can see sea turtles sunbathing on the shore, but keep away and respect the animals. Good viewing of surfers, kite boarding, and windsurfers.
