Aloha! So, you have just landed at Kahului Airport. After you have donned your welcome lei and sipped your first Blue Hawaii, the last thing you want to worry about is how you are getting around and how much that may lighten your wallet. Maui cabs and car tours can be notoriously expensive and hard to pin down from a scheduling perspective. When everyone around you is on island time, but you want to make the most yours, make sure you rent a car to see the best of what Maui has to offer! Conveniently, you can do this online so you can pick up your set of wheels right at the airport right away.
Without a doubt, one of the most popular activities in all of Hawaii is driving the treasured “Road to Hana”. The Road to Hana is a gorgeous, winding, bridge and waterfall-stuffed 64-mile road connecting Kahului with Hana, an old Hawaiian village known for its sugar plantations,where production boomed from the late 1800s through the middle 1900s. This road is overflowing with activities for everyone, from the outdoorsman over the history buff to the foodie. The road’s easy-to-handle low speed limits and numerous roadside attractions make the flexibility of renting a car the perfect decision when road tripping this scenic drive.
While the lush jungles and overall beauty of the Road to Hana will leave you in awe with its dozens of gorgeous waterfalls, hiking trails, and jungle ziplining opportunities, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the road’s many offerings. The countless roadside stands create the perfect stretch-your-legs break along the drive. These stands are most famous for their locally manufactured jewelry, fresh pineapples, and other Hawaiian fruits. More than that, you can even make your own lei flower wreaths! Finally, you cannot skip a visit to the exotic and beautiful black sand beaches of Waianapanapa State Park, situated just three miles before the end of your journey.
