Welcome to The Road to Hana
Roadside distractions? Eden-like swimming holes, sleepy seaside villages and hiking trails through cool forests. If you’ve never tried smoked breadfruit, explored a spring-fed cave or gazed upon an ancient Hawaiian temple, set the alarm early. As for rental cars, Jeeps and Mustangs are the ride of choice.
Once you’ve left Haʻiku behind, houses give way to thick jungle, and the scenery gets more dramatic. One quirk? After the 16-mile marker on Hwy 36, the Hana Hwy becomes Hwy 360 and the mile markers begin again at zero.
