Waiʻanapanapa State Park is located off Hana Highway at mile 32. It was my favorite stop on The Road to Hana. Its focal point is a beautiful volcanic black sand beach, with hiking trails extending out from each side of the beach. The park also...More

Beautiful park! This park has a black sand beach and beautiful lava formations that create lovely wave breaks and blow holes for thrills! The caves were closed when we stopped, and not sure why, but the park is so worth stopping and visiting along the...More

We camped here for 3 nights and had a great time. Although it rained every day, it usually only lasted short periods of time. The black sand beach is so picture-esque and there are many beautiful trails in the area. PLEASE DON'T TAKE THE LAVA...More

Drove the road to Hana and stopped here for our picnic lunch. They have done a great job getting rid of the mongoose. The picnic area is good and there are several walkways to use or go down to the black beach.

We stopped here for our lunch and had a gorgeous view. After lunch, we hiked along the rocks and enjoyed seeing all the swimmers at the black sand beach. Beautiful must-see on the road to Hana.

Nice little stop off on the Road to Hana. The black sand is really cool. There's also an interesting little cemetery in the middle of the park. Some trails from the beach but we didn't have time to fully explore - the bit that we...More

The color contrasts were so sharp it almost didn’t seem real. One of the most beautiful spots in that area.

This was a very cool stop. We were able to see a pretty view without doing any real hiking. We had a disabled individual with us and they were still able to enjoy the park (although not all of it obviously) but very pretty! One...More

Must do. This black sand beach is awesome! The lava tubes are fun to explore, the beach is great to sun bath in and the water is refreshing. Definitely a must do on Maui.

A very long drive from the cruise ship. Drive to get there is slow and on a very winding road. Park parking is very limited.

I will not add much more to what has already been said here. Start early, pack a lunch, have a full tank of gas, and be alert throughout the drive. (It's easy to gawk at the spectacular scenery surrounding you). We came... More
