Explore Hāna responsibly

Sponsored by Maui Visitors and Convention Bureau

HONOLULU (HI Now) - Whether you’re kamaʻaina or a visitor, here are a few key points to keep in mind to ensure the safety and ease when driving the Road to Hāna:

  • Drive as slowly and carefully as you like, and use pull outs to let faster drivers pass.
  • Look ahead for one-lane bridges and tight areas, and yield for oncoming traffic.
  • Don’t stop on bridges, or park where there are “no parking” signs and traffic may be impeded.
  • East Maui weather and road conditions can pose dangers ~ including flash flood conditions that come with mudslides, high surf and rip tides along the coast.
  • Take a guided tour to Hana with outfitters like Valley Isle Excursions. That way a seasoned driver can negotiate the curves and bridges while you relax and enjoy the journey.
  • Only visit areas that indicate safe access and respect no parking and no trespassing signs.
  • Park in designated parking stalls; vehicles protruding onto the highway are subject to being towed.
  • Allow locals behind you to pass when safe to do so.

Along the Road to Hāna, don’t forget to visit County, State and National Parks and local businesses.
