Lahaina JHM Driving Ideas Guide

Situated on the western coastline of the island of Maui, Lahaina JHM is one of the most popular tourist towns on the island. It is filled with many nightclubs and restaurants as well as excellent shopping opportunities including craft items.

The bay near the town is also a popular anchor point for cruise ships, and although the beaches in the town are not as popular as some surrounding areas, they are still beautiful.

There are a few attractions in the town itself such as the Banyan Tree, the Sugar Cane Train and the Old Lahaina JHM Lau (where you can experience traditional fire dancing and authentic Hawaiian cuisine).

Lahaina JHM to Hana

4 hours (136 km) (81 miles) via Highways 36/360

Although the town of Hana, situated on the east coast of Maui is relatively small, the journey getting there takes you along some of the most breathtaking coastal roads in the world! Make time in your itinerary as you will be stopping along the route to take pictures… lots of them!

There are some places along the route that are well worth taking some time out to explore. These include the Garden of Eden (a 26-acre botanical garden situated between mile marker 10 and 11) and the Waikani Falls (located at mile marker 18 and 19).

Hana itself is surrounded by rainforests. Activities in the town include the Seven Sacred Pools and the Waianapanapa State Beach, a beach consisting of black, volcanic sand.

Accommodation options in Hana include condo’s, resorts, cottages and bed and breakfast establishments.

Lahaina JHM to Haleakala National Park

1 h 22 minutes (75.6 km) (47 miles) via Highways 36/37/377

Perhaps the greatest attraction in the Haleakala National Park is the Haleakala Volcano and the landscape surrounding it. The spectacular sunrises and sunsets that can be seen from the top of the crater of Haleakala are legendary!

The landscape surrounding the volcano is teeming with wildlife and some local vegetation and is well worth exploring. There are many hiking trails in the park itself which take you through different microclimates, from the desert-like appearance near the volcano to lush rainforests further away. The most popular of these are the Halemauu and the Keoneheehee trails.

Accommodation options in the Haleakala National Park include camping and cabins while lodges, resorts or hotels can be found in towns surrounding the park.

Lahaina JHM to Kapalua

25 minutes (16 km) (10 miles) via Highway 30

One of the most popular destinations on Maui, Kapalua is situated on the west coast not far from Lahaina JHM. This area is known for its beautiful bays and sun-soaked beaches including Kapalua Bay, DT Fleming Beach, Oneloa Bay and Honolua Bay.

Water sports are one of the main attractions in the area and include snorkelling, kayaking, windsurfing and that Hawaiian favourite, surfing! Other attractions include hiking trails, ziplining and the longest suspension bridge in Hawai.
