The Road to Hana is a standout among things to do in Maui and breathtaking natural beauty of Hawaii. Stretching for 68 unforgettable miles, the Hana Highway itself was designated by President Bill Clinton as part of the Hana Millennium Legacy Trail in 2000. There are more than 600 curves on the drive from Kahului to Kipahulu, many of which are hairpin turns. The road is in view of miles of dazzling waterfalls, rugged cliffs set against vast ocean expanses, lush rainforests scented by white ginger blossoms, and secluded black sand beaches, as well as historic sites such as the grave of aviator Charles A. Lindbergh, which is located at the Kipahulu Point Light Station. The Hana Highway or Highway 360 forms most of what is known as the “Road to Hana.”
