Aunty Sandy’s banana bread has been featured on TV on the National Geographic Channel.

It was a part of Gordon Ramsay Uncharted on an episode about Hawaii’s Hana coast.

I did watch the episode, and this was THE spot that Gordon Ramsay ate banana bread in Maui.

In addition to this stop for banana bread, Gordon Ramsay also made a stop for huli huli chicken.

  • For women: Search for a rash guard for swimming and you won't have to worry as much about putting on sunscreen!
  • Water shoes for snorkeling if you won't be wearing fins, or just generally for the beach!
  • Cheapo waterproof phone case so you can capture pictures of colorful fishies swimming underwater!
    • I always have a camera float attached to my phone case that I put around my wrist
  • Snorkeling set: mask and fins
    • Fins allow you to propel further faster (aka see more in less time and energy!)
    • Go cheap if you accept that you need to come up for air frequently: regular swimming googles. They are not as fashionable but if you get swimming goggles, make them the clear kind so you won't be seeing dimmed colors of the colorful fishies!
    • If you are able, I recommend trying out the mask at your local lake (in summer) or pool so you will be good to go in Hawaii when there's actually stuff to see!
  • Travel-friendly turkish towel for the beach (lightweight compared to regular beach towels)
  • For women: Teva walking sandals (one of the best sandal brands for the outdoors, perfect for lots of walking around outside - that's not a lava field!)
  • For men: Teva sandals
  • For women: Merrell hiking shoes (one of the best outdoor shoe brands, perfect for walking over rugged terrain like lava fields!)
  • For men: Merrell hiking shoes
  • Moisture-wicking tech t-shirt for women perfect for hiking and hot days when you'll be outside a lot sweating
  • tech-t-shirt for men
  • For more ideas, do a search for hiking clothes or swimming clothes!

When can you get Aunty Sandy’s banana bread on the Road to Hana?

What hours is it open?

According to Aunty Sandy’s website, the banana bread stand is open every day from 8:30am to 2:30pm.

That said, it’s possible that they may sell out of banana bread before 2:30pm, so it’s better to go earlier rather than later!

So you may want to buy the banana bread on your way to Hana, rather than on the way back just to make sure you’ll get some!

 

 

How much does the banana bread cost?

When I went in February 2020, the cost of a loaf of banana bread was $6.

 

 

You might want to bring cash.

When I went, it was cash only under $10. So if you only want one loaf of banana bread and that’s it, be sure to bring along some cash! Add cash to your list of what to bring to Maui.

Location of Maui’s famous banana bread

Aunty Sandy’s banana bread stand isn’t directly on the Hana Highway.

So it’s not one of those food stands that you’ll naturally come across as you’re driving along.

Basically, you’ll want to pay attention for the sign to Keanae. There is a sign, but it can be easy to miss if you’re not paying attention. So pay attention! 😜 It’s a small road off to the side that goes to the Keanae Peninsula. As you are driving towards Hana, it will seem like it’s a side road that goes straight ahead.

Once you pass Paia, it’ll likely take you over an hour to reach the Keanae Peninsula. And it can take longer with traffic.

Explore the map.

 

And then once you turn off to get onto the Keanae Peninsula, you’ll come across the first scenic lookout spot.

You can stop here to take in the views.

Then, keep driving!

Just a little bit down the road you’ll see Aunty Sandy’s banana bread and you can’t miss it.

There are a few parking spots.

If the parking is full, you can turn back around to park at the lookout area you just passed, or you can keep going and park at the next Keanae lookout, and then walk to the banana bread stand! It’ll be a few minutes walk from either lookout for a nice leisurely stroll along the Hana coast. The Keanae Peninsula is not that big.
