Take the road to Hāna. Maui’s remote eastern coast is home to Hāna, a peaceful, unspoiled paradise. Reaching Hāna entails one of the world’s most enchanting and awe-inspiring drives. Leave early because the Hāna Highway—a 52-mile drive from Kahului with 620 curves, 59 bridges, and amazing vistas can take a few hours. You’ll drive through rainforests and bamboo forests, and by cascading waterfalls, deep pools, taro patches, botanical gardens, and beaches. Stop along the way to hike, get wet, snap a few pictures, or picnic. Once in Hāna, visit Hasegawa General store and Hana Ranch Store for souvenirs or sunbathe at Hāna Beach Park.
