Can I swim at the beaches on this tour?

Yes, but it depends when you’re traveling. In the summer, the waves are generally calmer and safe for swimming.

Always use your best judgement and please note there is only one beach with lifeguards on this tour and that’s at DT Fleming Beach.

Don’t Leave Your Hotel Without It

Don-Coyote | January 2022
Can’t imagine doing the Road to Hana without the Shaka Guide. Very informative, entertaining and educational. Especially appreciated the recommendations on where to stop and what to pass up if pressed for time. The musical accompaniments were wonderful. The only complaint is that we wanted to visit Charles Lindbergh’s burial site but no directions were provided. We could not find any road signs for where to turn and GPS was not working. But very pleased overall and highly recommend.

Best Way to Drive to Hana

Andyyc11 | January 2022
We traveled the road to Hana ourselves and took on the challenge of driving the one of a kind type road. This app and guide was the best $20 spent! It provided the perfect dialogue, commentary, music, and history for this drive. It kept us engaged and we didn’t miss a spot along the drive because of how perfectly laid out this app is. Looking forward to using this app again the next time we visit Hana!
