Hana Day Trip Itinerary

We will be coming Maui in late June. We will be driving the Road to Hana on a Monday. We plan to drive to Black Sand Beach and then turn back. Please advise on my itinerary with the current times and activities if they are reasonable and doable. I especially do NOT want to drive back in the dark! Is there room to stay later than 4:00 and still make it back before dark?

Twin Falls/Caveman Falls - Swimming in Falls & Exploring

Not bad, overall :-). But I would probably be open to adjusting times to suit the attraction and conditions.

Late June can mean small waterfalls. I also doubt that you need an hour at Nahiku Marketplace, for example.

Be careful of the ocean conditions near the lava tunes and at Waianapanapa.

No, you shouldn't stay past 4.

4:00pm is the absolute latest I would stay to get back before dark. There is a good chance by the time you get to Aunt Sandy's she will already be sold out. I would throw the times out the window and make it as spontaneous as possible. You never know how much time you will want to spend at any given spot or traffic you might hit!!
