Road to Hana // Part II

The Road to Hana is basically a metaphor for the cliched expression “it’s about the journey, not the destination”. You could spend days doing the drive, stopping at each bend for an attraction, or view. Our experience was a mix of periodic showers, the resulting rainbows, a few hikes, random stops, and punctuated with a visit to the Red Sand Beach of Kaihalulu Bay at Hana.

The trailhead for Twin Falls is marked by a simple turnoff and a fruit stand selling goods from the nearby farm. A quick walk through a garden path eventually leads to a small waterfall and swimming area. Worth stopping for, but because it’s so well marked, and non-treacherous it tends to be busier than other stops.

It had just finished raining when we drove by the Upper Waikani Falls, so we decided against following the slippery path down to the bottom of the falls. That said, taking a break from driving to stretch your feet in front of 3 waterfalls (a.k.a. the Three Bears) is one of the treats of driving the Road to Hana.

Once in Hana, we made sure to see the Red Sand Beach of Kaihalulu Bay. Finally, we retraced our driving back along the road, and made our way back to the South shore.
