Destination guide

Take the "Road to Hana"

Set on Maui's eastern tip, Hana is one of Hawaii's most isolated coastal townships. It sits at the end of the Road to Hana, a scenic highway that hugs the coast for many picturesque miles. It's an iconic American road trip, though despite its fame Hana itself remains wonderfully laid-back. The town is home to a tightknit community and has managed to retain its status as an untouched tropical paradise. If you're searching for a glimpse of 'Old Hawaii' Hana vacation rentals could be just the place to seek out.

Things to do

A taste of tropical Hawaii

With its black lava sand and hidden sea caves, Wai'anapanapa State Park is a just a stone's throw up the coast. Whether you want to relax on the beach or peer into tidal pools, it's an enchanting slice of Maui's east coast. Run by a local family, Hana Farms is brimming with tropical fruits, colorful flowers, and fragrant spices. It's a great place to stock up on edible souvenirs, or devour a slice of banana bread and a refreshing ginger lime soda.

Activities

In search of Hana seascapes

Most visitors arrive via the Road to Hana, an impossibly beautiful highway that winds its way past cascading waterfalls, lush hillsides, towering cliffs, and rugged seascapes. Not to mention a handful of white-knuckle hairpin bends and narrow bridges. For fun in the sun, Hana Bay Beach is a firm favorite. The bayside park is perfect for splashing in the surf, unpacking a picnic, and listening to locals strum ukuleles as the sun goes down. If you'd rather enjoy a private sunset session, Hana vacation rentals treat guests to breezy decks and sparkling ocean views.

Weather

"Hang 10" at Hana's Koki Beach Classic

Maui is a sanctuary for winter sunseekers, with high season spanning from December to April. Resorts are often crowded and booked to capacity, which makes Hana vacation rentals a fantastic option for those in search of rest and relaxation. If you want to beat the crowds, plan a visit in spring or fall. For a glimpse at Hawaii's surf culture, visit in September, when Koki Beach hosts the annual Hana Surfing Classic. The town also fills up for April's East Maui Taro Festival _ a lively weekend of hula dancing, Hawaiian music and of course, plenty of poi.

Natural features

Welcome to the "House of the Sun"

Just west of Hana is Haleakala National Park, known by locals as the "House of the Sun". It lives up to its name, with spectacular sunrises in the Summit District. Perched high above the clouds, the Haleakala Visitor Center is a fantastic place to watch the fiery display. The Summit District is also known for its otherworldly landscape of towering volcanoes, cinder cones, and ancient lava flows. You can explore the region by car, or take on one of the rugged hiking trails. If you're a birder, keep an eye out for the park's endangered Hawaiian geese.
