The Road to Hana
The high point of any Maui vacation is the Road to Hana, generally considered to be one the most picturesque drives in the world. Beginning in Kahului, the Hana Highway winds past waterfalls, dramatic vistas and flowering rainforests until it reaches the small town of Hana. Filled with narrow one-lane bridges and hairpin turns, the 52-mile drive can take anywhere from two to four hours.
Hana itself is a quaint town on the island’s east coast that embodies the spirit of aloha. Once there, visit historic St. Sophia’s Church, browse for souvenirs at the Hasegawa General Store and Hana Ranch Store, or tour Hale Pilani, the state’s largest Hawaiian temple.
