For those who want to experience the most that the road to Hana has to offer, Circle Hana Road is your adventure. Our Circle Hana Road adventure begins along the famous northern route of the Hana Highway, continues past Hana Town, and travels along the less-explored southern coast.
Experience lush, tropical rainforests, numerous cascading waterfalls, breathtaking coastline views and secluded beaches, as well as popular roadside stands and the vast variety of climates and landscapes Maui has to offer. Highlights include numerous waterfalls, lunch in or near Hana town, Ke’anae Village, green sea turtles at Ho’okipa, a lava cave, rare colorful beaches, panoramic ocean views and opportunities for light off-roading along a secluded beach.
This adventure does not include the Pipiwai Trail/Seven Sacred Pools and the red sand beach at Kaihalulu. The Pipiwai Trail/Seven Sacred Pools is located within Haleakala National Park and we do not have a permit to enter the park. Tour companies are also not allowed to take anyone into the park, even if the guests have their own pass.
In addition, the trail to the red sand beach in Hana is dangerous and crosses private property. Hana residents have asked tour companies to not take visitors here and we have respected their wishes. As an alternative, we stop at Koki Beach, where there is gorgeous red sand and picturesque views for the option of eating lunch by the sea.
All are optional (weather permitting) and customized to your preferences.

We provide a cooler in the Jeep with ice, water, Hawaiian juices and ginger ale. Lunch is not included, but your driver will recommend the best places to eat and take you where you would like to go! This allows us to support the local community, as well as give you the most possible options for an immersive, local dining experience on your adventure.
Right from the start I realized we made the right decision by not driving ourselves. The Circle Hana drive is very beautiful! Our driver pointed out many beautiful sights, allowing us to stop any place we wanted to along the way to Hana. We stopped (and swam) at many beautiful waterfalls, saw sea turtles, explored a lava tube and ate at a stand that sold possibly the best banana bread I ever ate in my life. Our driver was very informative and showed us many different places and even a few secret places that we would’ve never found on our own. I highly recommend going on this excursion with Hoaloha Jeep Adventures!
