It’s a known fact that Maui is an incredible vacation destination, one of the top places to visit in the world, and a place to retreat from day-to-day life and enjoy time in one of the most beautiful places in the world. A visit to Maui is more than just a vacation, it’s a chance to escape and have a memorable experience in a place that will take your breath away. From natural beauty to fun things to do, Maui offers so much, and you are going to have the time of your life during your visit.
Whether you’ve been to the island before or if this is your first time, you have plenty to do and become acquainted with. The entire island has managed to maintain its low-key lifestyle and laid back feel that Hawaii has long been known for, and this is especially true way out on the island’s eastern coast, where you’ll find the heavenly town of Hana. Located far away from the bigger towns of Kahului, Lahaina, and Kihei, Hana encompasses the spirit of Hawaii, embracing peace, quiet, and isolation.
Located 52 miles from Kahului, it really is a world away. Way over on this part of the island, hidden beaches, scenic lookouts, and lush landscapes dominate the scenery, and is one of the quietest areas in Hawaii. The only way to get to Hana is along the world-famous Hana Highway, the highway that was constructed to bring workers from the west side to the east to work in the sugar plantations. Travel to Hana is easier said than done, though a short distance, the highway winds along the steep slopes of Haleakala, with more than 600 bends in the road and more bridges that you can count.
Hana is a rural community and one of the most isolated towns in the entire island chain. Though most visits to Hana are single day visits, you can choose to stay here, with the Hotel Travaasa-Hana offering first class accommodations and a perfect place to really get away from it all. The beauty and scenery of Hana are nearly unmatched, with close by destinations giving the chance to explore and get to know the area. Sites like Wai’anapanapa Black Sand Beach and State Park and Koki Red Sand Beach provide exotic, tropical beaches to relax at, and the slopes of Haleakala offer plenty to do.
During a visit to Maui, there are a handful of must do activities, like snorkeling, a tour around the Road to Hana, and of course an authentic Hawaiian luau. The scenery along the Hana Highway is incredible and you are going to love seeing a throwback Hawaiian town.
