Getting There

The turn-off for the lava tube is at mile marker 31. This is the largest and most accessible lava tube in Maui. A must-see for those interested in caves and geology. You will encounter rare lava stalagmites, and stalactites that almost seem to be dripping chocolate from the cave ceiling. This is the largest and most accessible lava tube in Maui. A must-see for those interested in caves and geology. You will encounter rare lava stalagmites, and stalactites that almost seem to be dripping chocolate from the cave ceiling. While the lava tube is much longer, visitors are only allowed to hike 1/3 of a mile into it which is the edge of the property above. It is open year round, seven days a week, between the hours of 10:30am - 4pm. $12.50 per person. There is also a one-of-a-kind Red Ti Botanical Garden Maze that is quite interesting.

Plenty of parking. A visitors center. Port-A-Potty. Picnic area.

The guy at the entrance said there was no lighting in the lava tube and they could lend us the flashlight for 12.5 USD. After I told them we had brought our own headlight (for the lava tube on the big island), he said the flashlight was free, and the 12.5 USD was the park fee because this was a private tourist attraction. I looked around And there was no sign of pricing. We had no issue paying for the park, private or not but they should be more transparent on the price.

$12.50 per person entrance fee. You get flashlights to use and it’s a self guided tour. They also have a maze on the property. It was a nice easy hike.

I didn’t know this was classified as a hike, but it was very easy. They give you flashlights, and there are signs you can read about the lava tube inside. It was a cool, one-time only experience.

A bit expensive to enter at $12.50 but worth it if you’re into caves. Quick hike in and out with great cave formations.

This is cool .33 of a mile hike into a Lava Cave. It’s $12.50 per person. The hike takes about 30 mins to complete. Really cool formations from the lava.

Pretty neat place, worth the stop. Staff provides good info but there is a cost to incur. Locals get a discount.

Great to explore. They provide flashlights and it is self guided. The road to Hana is winding & narrow. make sure you research what you plan to do. Plan to make it a day trip. Price is still $12.50 per person. They are very friendly, grounds are beautiful, cave is clean & maintained. They have clean Portalets for those needs.

Nice stop on the Road to Hana, but I believe it was about $20 per person to enter.

A great stop on the road to Hana. A bit pricey, but you are on Maui! Property owner was supper nice and helpful. This was my 3.5 year olds intro to caves. Flashlights were supplied.

Very cool experience and place though I think it was overpriced a bit. The owner of the land was super nice and friendly and the caves were amazing. Wish we could of went down farther.

Keep in mind I am from Alaska. When I first stepped off the plane in Hawaii all I wanted to do was crawl under a rock. Honestly, I am not a huge fan of Hawaii. It is beautiful, and I met a lot of wonderful people. I am just not a water person and my idea of paradise is a tundra under "the great one" Denali and glaciers. The Hawaiian gods understood and guided me to their beautiful caverns on their island of Maui. If you ever drive the Road To Hana don't miss this lava tube. It gives you a glimpse of the life blood of Hawaii by allowing you to walk a volcanic artery. This underground is why we see the incredible forest above.
