Wailua Falls off the Road to Hana

Wailua Falls

Wailua Falls is a beautiful waterfall to see from the Road to Hana. It’s easy to see from the road, plus there’s usually plenty of parking nearby so you can stop for a good look.

You’ll find Wailua Falls Between mile markers 45 and 44, past the town of Hana but before you get to the Oheo Gulch on Highway 31. The waterfall will be on the mauka (mountain) side of the road. Parking will be on the makai (ocean) side of the road.

I took a quick 14-second video of Wailua Falls for you to see.

  1. Beautiful!!! Anybody else have any must-see spots on the Road to Hana? mile markers are helpful

      Here are some other road to Hana must see’s with detailed directions:
      – Wainapanapa State Park is another stop to see before you get to Hana. (I’ll have an upcoming post on this one.)

      – Oheo Gulch at the coastal side of Haleakala National Park.
      If time and weather permit, this is a great hike: https://www.govisithawaii.com/2011/10/04/follow-the-pipiwai-trail-to-waimoku-falls/

      I recommend you purchase a Maui guidebook that covers the road to Hana. Maui Revealed is the most thorough one for the road to Hana in my opinion. That will help you see what you’re interested in to help make your plans. There’s more stops than you can possibly do in one day so you’ll just have to hit the highlights of your interests.

  2. We were there last year with my wife’s parents. We took a helicopter ride from Kahului to Hana, stayed the night and rented a car in Hana and drove the road back. What untouched beauty. We found a waterfall/pool that my wife visited when she was 8. We were able to take a picture from the same spot 22 years later.

    1. Lee – I bet that helicopter ride to Hana was spectacular. That’s awesome to have found the same waterfall pool.
