Best Kept Secret

West Maui Mountains

  • $299/Person

  • Two Person Minimum

  • 6 - 8 hours

  • Start time: 7 a.m.

Discover the remote upper west side of Maui. The West Maui Mountains tour is ideal for those staying in Ka'anapali or Lahaina Town, and who have already experienced the Road to Hana. While the route on the west side of the island is a little rougher than the more famous Road to Hana, our expert guides are capable drivers. This adventure offers the option to stop at a variety of places, such as Punalau Beach, one of our favorite hidden locations. Known by a few locals, it can only be accessed by a 4×4 vehicle, like our convertible Jeeps, down a rough dirt road.

Another favorite cultural spot is the historic town of Lahaina. This old capital of the Kingdom of Hawaii (1820-1845) is rich in culture and history, as well as a former whaler’s port. Lahaina currently showcases great restaurants, art galleries and many souvenir shops along Front Street. Other highlights of the West Maui Mountains adventure include historic Iao Valley State Park, Honolua Bay, Makaluapuna Point, and the Maui Tropical Plantation.

Happy Adventurers

Amazing! We had a great adventure with Marcus in the West Maui Mountains. He took the time to find out what we wanted to do as a family and we enjoyed every minute of the trip. This is an experience we will never forget.

Why are the West Maui Mountains the Best Kept Secret?

The island of Maui is beloved for its world-famous beaches, the awe-inspiring sunset and sunrise views from atop Haleakala, and the long, winding road of the Hana Highway. However, if you have visited all of that and want a brand new adventure, come experience the West Maui Mountains with us!

Also known as Mauna Kahalawai, the West Maui Mountains are a seldom-visited tourist destination with routes that offer breathtaking views. You read that right. The road to Hana is not the only scenic drive you can take around the island. Going through the west region of the Island even rivals that of the Hana highway. You’ll see lush rainforests and valleys one moment and the never ending coastlines of Maui the next.
