Activities for the Adventurous in Hana, Maui

Although many people want to take a ride on the Road to Hana, that’s not all there is to our little city by the beach. We’re well known for rest and relaxation, but Hana also has much to offer visitors who are a little more adventurous.

Activities for the Adventurous in Hana, Maui

Hike To Fagan’s Cross

Paul Irving Fagan, Sr. is a renowned figure in Hana history. He’s credited with starting the first cattle ranch in Hana with 1,400 acres. The cross was built in his memory in 1960, and visiting early in the morning to see the sunrise is a popular activity. It’s quite a hike, and you must get up early to see the sun rise.

But as anyone who has been there will tell you, well worth the time and trouble to get there. Easter sunrise services are also conducted at the cross, meaning you can also have a spiritual adventure if go during that time of the year. You’ll drive up and park, and then hike the rest of the way. Wear good walking shoes, and bring your flashlight, camera, as well as some water with you.

Hana Bay Snorkeling

It’s one of Maui’s best snorkeling spots, especially for snorkelers who prefer to stay in shallower waters. Also called Uakea, Hana Bay hosts a black sand beach that’s also ideal for beginners. Eroding lava from a nearby freshwater stream flows into the bay, giving the beach its black sand.

Hana Bay is also a popular weekend destination for people visiting with families. The park includes amenities such as picnic facilities, including barbecue pits, restrooms, a snack bar, and covered pavilions. Be aware that there are no lifeguards on duty here, so pay attention to all signage and warnings when visiting.

Bicycling Tour On The Road To Hana

If you’ve been here before, you know that the Road to Hana is more than a trip on the freeway—it’s an adventure with lots of twists and turns.

Bicycling enthusiasts with a taste for adventure can take privately run bike tours of this well-known road with Maui Easy Riders. Starting early, the meetup is at Lower Paia Park at 8:30 or another start time if you and your party prefer. These are private tours for you and your party, and no other parties will be on your tour. 

The Road To Hana By Air

Driving to Hana from elsewhere is well known to take a long time. But if you really want to take the tour and not take all day, there is a solution: hop a helicopter!

You’ll be able to see lots of Maui in less time than it takes to drive or take a tour. Air Maui offers a wide range of helicopter tours of Maui, including the Road to Hana and Haleakala with a cliffside landing. The tour takes just over an hour, and a media package is available after your flight.
