Hana

Hana Maui

Hana, isolated from the rest of the island, is truly the last undeveloped tropical paradise on Maui. 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.

Location: Maui’s eastern coastline.

Pools of Oheo

Pools of Oheo

On the lower slopes of Haleakala are the famous Pools of Oheo in Oheo Gulch. Here you’ll discover beautifully tiered, pools fed by waterfalls. Weather permitting, you may take a dip in these tranquil pools fed by streams starting two miles inland. Here you'll find the Pipiwai Trail a 3 to 5 hour hike, one of the best trails on the island, which leads to the 400-foot Waimoku Falls.

Location: Ten miles south of Hana at Mile Marker 42.
