Three Lookout Points To Stop At On Your Road To Hana Tour

The Road to Hana stretches across some of the most beautiful parts of the island of Maui. Taking a tour of the Road to Hana is a lovely way to see the top sites the road has to offer. You can book a private tour, or you can rent a car and take a self-guided tour. Regardless of which option you choose, here are some lookout points you'll definitely want to stop at.

Honomanu Bay

Honomanu Bay is an incredible lookout that's about halfway to Hana. You can park on the side of the highway and walk down to the lookout point. Or, if you're driving a vehicle with 4-wheel drive, you can probably drive down the access road to one of the closer parking areas, which makes the walk shorter. When you reach the lookout point, you'll know it. You'll see black sand beaches and a peninsula stretching out into the ocean. It's also a special land in the spiritual tradition of Native Hawaiians. 

Kaumahina State Wayside Park

This is an easy lookout to stop at because it is just off the highway. You can park, take a very short walk through some forest, and enjoy a stunning view of Maui's coastline. The plant life is really dense here, which makes for a lovely scene. From the lookout point, you can see the land stretching out in the distance, which also tends to feel surreal. There are picnic tables right by the lookout, so this is a good place to take a lunch break.

Wailua Falls

Wailua Falls is one of the easiest waterfalls to see on the Road to Hana, although you will see it from a lookout point located across the river from it. These are actually two waterfalls, situated right next to each other in the Wailua River. To see them, you pull off the road and take a short hike toward the water. You'll be standing on one side of the river, looking across at the top of the falls.  Sometimes, the lookout area will be misty from the water, depending on which way the wind is blowing.

Lookout points are some of the most incredible sights you can see on your Road to Hana tour. Make sure you stop at one or more of the lookout points mentioned above and see the island of Maui in a new way.
