Full Description
Nahiku Cove is an amazing location off the Hana Highway and one we strongly recommend you stop at. It's not too hard to find, just look for the turn off to Nahiku Road around mile marker 25 and you'll head towards the ocean.

Nahiku Road is pretty long and winding and mostly a single lane of roadway so go slow and watch for oncoming traffic. You'll go passed a small community of houses and eventually the road will dead end when it reaches the ocean and your destination.

Park, get out, and look around. Hope you brought a camera because this place is the stuff photographers dream about. Tons of shades of blue, deep black rocks, and lush green plants make this a great place to shoot or just sit back and relax while you take it all in.

There is no sandy beach to be had here and while there is a rocky cove you'll probably die if you attempted to get down to it. This place isn't about getting in the water, it's about the peaceful views.

Even the drive down here and back up again is a lot of fun. Overall, it's one of my favorite places along the Hana Highway and a must-see location.

This is an incredible place to see in person. This is raw nature at its finest. Not to be missed on the Road to Hana.

Visited in 2013. My husband and I were doing the Road to Hana and decided to venture off a little ways to Nahiku Cove. The road to the cove itself is basically single lane and is maybe 3-4 miles long. You go through a lot of local lands and get insight on what "Hawaiian country" is. The cove area itself is beautiful! If you're short on time, I would pass this up, but if time is no issue, feel free to check it out! Total trip is maybe 45 minutes.

As you drive on the road to Hana, there is a special side road that is worth a visit. Nahiku Cove is at the bottom of a narrow road that is really quite beautiful. You won't be able to take a bad photo here. There is a grassy area with healthy palm trees. There isn't a beach here - just a rocky shoreline with a beautiful cove to your left. It's a peaceful area with very few tourists. It's also a nice road to take a walk through lush terrain. I wouldn't spend all day here, but It's a really beautiful area to enjoy.
