Start EARLY and leave hana with enough time to make it out before the sunsets because it gets pitch black and the windy roads in the forest are tough to navigate quickly. I felt it was a long drive but if you start early you can stop often to buy fruits sugar cane see the black sand beach etc. Buy... More

I know that I will disapoint some people by saying this but we were just not impressed by the pools. Maybe it was the crowds or maybe it was the heat or even just the long drive to get there, but nothing here stood out for us as impressive. Yes they are pools, but there is other scenery on the...

We drove the half hour or so past Hana to visit this and sadly we were not impressed. Its a hike from the visitors center to the pools. When we got there the pools were crowded and the scenery was not as impressive as what we had seen on the other parts of our drive. For someone who has never... More

We spent a lot of time exploring the sights along the Hana Highway. Haleakala National Park has free parking and clean restrooms. First, we elected to hike the Pipiwai Trail to Waimoku Falls. Don't get to close to the falls. Two weeks earlier a little girl died when she was hit by a falling rock. Second, we saw the Seven... More

We took the road to Hana, which of course is a must do while in Maui, but the best part for me was at the end of the road when we reached the Seven Sacred Pools. This place brings to mind what people think of when they think of Hawaii, waterfalls and deep clean pools of water, but in this... More

AKA: seven sacred pools. About another 30-40 min past Hana with scarier road. Totally worth the drive my husband said...and he was driving. Beautiful pools that u can swim in and cliff dive. Some hiking over rocks or cliff sides if u choose to go to higher pools. Lower pools easily accessible to all. Great time. Don't do the road... More

This is part of the Haleakala National Park hikes. To get there you drive the road to Hana, pass Hana, then get to the park. The pools are quite lovely and it's a short hike. Don't miss the bamboo forest while you're in the National Park.

I enjoyed having the opportunity to see the Seven Sacred Pools during my trip to Maui; however, it's not the only reason you should be going on the road to Hana and Haleakala National Park. It certainly is a beautiful sight, but by the time you get there you've already seen several waterfalls, and the pools just didn't give me... More

The seven sacred pools was a great excursion from Hana. Though the drive could be even narrower than the road to Hana, at slow speeds it was at no time scary. Got there later in the day and spent some time climbing on the rocks and swimming in the pools. Enjoyed listening to the ocean crash in the background and... More

In Maui, there are wonderful surprises at every turn, this was one of them. South of Hana on Hwy# 31, you will find the Oheo Gulch. Unless you are staying in Hana, the drive to Oheo Gulch is a full day venture but well worth it. Tip: try to go Monday-Thursday, weekends are very busy. We arrived mid afternoon and... More
