Hana

Send to friendSend to friend

Along Maui's rugged eastern coastline is the peaceful town of Hana, considered one of the last unspoiled Hawaiian frontiers. The legendary road to Hana is only 52 miles from Kahului, however the drive can take anywhere from two to four hours to complete since it's fraught with narrow one-lane bridges, hairpin turns and incredible island views.

The Hana Highway (HI-360) has 600 curves and 54 bridges. The road leads you through flourishing rainforests, flowing waterfalls, plunging pools and dramatic seascapes. There are plenty of opportunities to stop and enjoy the lovely views, so get an early start and take your time on your drive.

Historic St. Sophia’s Church is in Hana, where the pastures roll right up to the main street. The historic Hotel Hana-Maui is a luxurious retreat in this village rooted in Hawaiian tradition. Browse the Hasegawa General Store and Hana Ranch Store. Swim and sunbathe at Hana Beach Park or Hamoa Beach, cited by author James Michener as the most beautiful beach in the Pacific. Snorkel at Waianapanapa State Park, a beautiful black sand beach, or the isolated Kaihalulu Beach, a red sand beach. Hale Piilani, the state’s largest heiau (Hawaiian temple), in Kanahu Gardens, is one of five National Tropical Botanical Gardens in Hawaii.

Beyond Hana, 10 miles south to the outskirts of Haleakala National Park is Kipahulu. There you’ll find the popular Pools of Oheo, where waterfalls spill into tiered, tranquil, natural pools leading to the sea. The Pipiwai Trail takes you to the beautiful, 400-foot Waimoku Falls.
