Maui’s Road to Hana
Sure, any number of books can tell you approximately how to find a place. But, since many of the interesting sites on the Hana Highway have no signs, these books use “mile markers”. This means that you have to look at the side of the road for these signs, while driving on a slow, winding, and unfamiliar highway. How fun is that?
With Maui Road to Hana, you receive audio notifications before you come to a site. Then when you arrive, a display pops up with a picture of the place. You get to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Hana Highway, and Maui Road to Hana does the rest.
Maui Road to Hana does not require a cell phone connection for our notifications to alert you. That’s a good thing, too, because for much of the drive your reception will be spotty at best.
Here are just two of the over 40 places that Maui Road to Hana contains:
- The Charles Lindbergh grave. Our guide alerts you not only to the church in which the grave is located, but also to the turnoff for the side road that takes you there.
- Alelele Falls. This little-known section of Haleakala National Park is a great place for a short hike and a dip in an uncrowded pool. Maui Road to Hana guide leads you right to the spot.
