Challenges of the Road to Hana
It’s not easy trying figure out what to do once you’ve decided on a Maui vacation and this includes how and when to travel the road to Hana. As an example, a google search will show you over 566,000 pages about this road…reviews and top 10’s abound! It’s easy to understand that people can become frustrated with limited time restraints while on a Maui vacation. It happens to everyone including folks who try to jam in a couple of different Hawaiian island visits into their 10-14 day vacation. However, there are plenty of other reasons you may have time restraints, and it’s important to know how much time the road to Hana can take.
Maui is not a small island. Even though I’ve lived on this island for over 20 years as a professional photographer I still cannot say I’ve experienced everything. I’ve come pretty close though, and I’m still working on it as I’m constantly building up my photo/video archive of Maui. One thing I often hear when people are contemplating a Maui vacation is whether they should do the road to Hana. I’ve traveled this road in every condition and in almost every way possible, including by helicopter, so hopefully, I can share a few useful things I’ve seen and learned about traveling this road. It’s one of the top 5 scenic drives in the world making it a busy place.
