Everyone knows a trip to Maui should include traversing the famous Road to Hana—52 miles of meandering, twisting miles of oceanside/rainforest filled road from kahului to hana. There’s so many scenic outlooks/waterfalls/mini hikes & beaches en route that the trip takes a full day.
Paia is well known as the best place to grab gas as there are no more gas stations until reaching Hana. Also some decent gelato & places to grab pack lunch. We however didnt stop since had picked up lunch (and dessert!) at leoda’s pie shop at Olowalu/south of Lahaina
