Ali’I Kula Lavendar Farm

Hana Lava Tube

Created by hot, flowing lava many years ago, this cave takes you to a whole new level on Maui. Explore the lavascape and marvel at how nature works as you traverse this unique path. Then, wrap up your day with lunch on the scenic property or try your luck on the Red Ti Botanical Garden Maze.
