    Spencer from Valley Isle was a remarkable tour guide. We met at 3:30am to drive a winding road up the volcano to see an amazing sunrise. The highlight of the trip was the beautiful chanting of the native Hawaiian men in their native language, honoring and greeting the sun. It was freezing cold and very windy. Dresses like you are going to Alaska. But worth every second.

    Great tour, great tour guide and very friendly staff. We learned so much and the pineapples are out of this world sweet and tasty!
    Great value, wonderful items to take home and taking the pineapples through the airport was a breeze!

    Clean beach with soft sand. Small areas to gather. Nice area to snorkel. A family of turtles. No beach chairs - bring your own.

    This attraction is over-sold to tourists. While there are many stops available along the road, many involve a time-expensive hike to see if you only have 1 day to do the whole road. We researched the road carefully before going and decided to devote 2 days to it in order to avoid the crowds and have the time to experience things properly. On our first day, we did the early stops commencing mid-morning (to avoid the crowds) and on the second day, we skipped these early stops to get ahead of the crowd heading for the stops towards the end of the road either side of Hana. As an early stop, Twin Falls was worth the time - attractive water falls spilling into an easily accessible pool in which you could swim and approach the foot of the falls for photos. Only a short hike from the car park (USD10 fee) off the Hana Hwy. A few waterfalls are observable fee-free from the side of the road itself if you are lucky enough to fill a vacant carpark space nearby. All man-made attractions along the road we assessed as not worth stopping for (fruit stands, BBq stop, Garden of Eden etc). Towards Hana, while the town itself is entirely missable, the Oheo Gulch to Hana's south is worth the extra drive and the Lava Tunnel is outstanding (very long and wide). The state park where the black sand beach is is the highlight of the road trip in our opinion. Make sure you reserve a visiting time as entry without it will be denied.

    I am not sure what else to say that already hasn't been said about this place. If you are on Maui this is the one spot you truly need to hit as seeing the sunrise above the clouds is truly an experience. However, just make sure to dress warm as it will get very cold up there no matter what time of the year that you go. After the sun is up, you can't believe just truly high up that you are. This place is truly special and must visit if you are in Maui.

    Beautiful beach. Big drop-off. Big waves. Not great for kids. Shady places. we sat at the back of the beach in the shade and out of the wind. Very comfortable. Use your GPS for beach access. Family oriented.

    Such fun. Drinking and learning! Our guide, Jade, was very knowledgeable and it was so fun to get the story behind the tastes. After that, we ate the INCREDIBLE carbonara pizza- nothing like it. So delicious. Views and service were fantastic. Buying a bottle of Ocean back in the mainland.

    Maui Tropical Plantation was recommended to us as a nice lunch stop on our drive back toward Lahaina from the north side of the island. We are so glad we stopped! The lunch at Cafe Ole was fantastic. The drinks were delicious and the views of the valley and mountains were beautiful. They have a nice gift shop and market and other buildings with crafts, a zip line and plantation tour. We didn't have time to fully explore but will be sure to stop again on our next trip to Maui.

    It was neat to see so many turtles in one place along with watching the surfers; it was a great stop! Would recommend for an hour or so

    The Pipiwai Trail is a beautiful trail located on the backside (South-East Side) of Haleakalā National Park. 
    The 4-mile round trip trail is a steep hike that leads through lush bamboo forests where you hear the hallow bamboo knocking against eachother, the 7 sacred pools to the breathtaking towering sheer-cliff Makahiku Falls (almost 200’ cliffs) and Waimoku Falls (sheer 400′ cliffs). Plunging over a verdant cliff covered with bamboo, lush ferns and vines melting into the postcard-perfect Hawaiian rainforest valley below.
    Along the trail you will also find a gigantic banyan tree the size of a decent-sized house.
    This trail is considered the best hike on the island. The trail winds around the freshwater stream Ohe’o Gulch with very beautiful and diverse scenery throughout.
    And in true rain forest fashion it began raining 1/2 way through the hike but we continued on to make it a memorable experience. The pictures don’t do justice to the experience of this hike.

    We’ve done this hike many times with other individuals of various hiking and physical fitness levels. Plan accordingly to allow sufficient time based on the steep trials and sometimes wet and slippery conditions. There aren’t any facilities along the trail either so make sure to stop at the restrooms in the parking lot entrance.

    The Banyan Tree Park is home to the largest Banyan Tree in the United States. It provides shade and is a popular meeting place. The regular craft fair and art shows have been suspended. This tree is healthy and well maintained. At sunset the birds fly into the tree to sleep. There is a unique view of the tree from the 2nd floor of the Historic Lahaina courthouse or from Cool Cat Cafe.
