This place is absolutely beautiful, from the blow holes, to the lava cliffs, the black sand beach, and the caves. I don't think you can take a bad photo anyway at this place. And it's free!

This is a black gravel and sharp rock beach so take your water shoes. Swim only when their are not signs posted for rip currents or box jellyfish. They are not fun to get stung by. This beach is fun but be sure and take...More

This is a very scenic and restful stop on the road to Hana. Bring a picnic lunch and claim one of the picnic tables and enjoy a meal with a view.

Hi everyone, First trip to Maui (actually Hawaii) and wondered what the best and most unique places were to visit as we travel the Road to Hana. It seems that there are alot of things to do (only looking to do about 3-4 I think) and not sure which are best. Oh, our group consists of adults in good health (ages 25-35) and kids ages 4-14. Thanks in advance guys.
