Be sure to visit Hāna, Wailea and Kā’ana­pali.

Road to Hāna

It’s said the 54-mile Hāna High­way (from Kahu­lui to east Maui’s Hāna) has 617 curves, 56 bridges, and num­ber­less wa­ter­falls and streams. It’s not cer­tain who did the count­ing, but this much is clear: Time is elas­tic on the Hāna High­way. You’ll get there when you get there. Bends in the road ap­pear with­out warn­ing, and cars move slowly. Pic­turesque sites with mel­liflu­ous names curl along the coast: Uaoa, Ho‘olawa, Waipi‘o, Huelo, Makaiwa, Wailua and dozens more. The road is el­e­vated, so the views are end­less. Just when you think you’ve reached the lim­its of ex­haus­tion and Cap­tion text hunger, a fruit stand ap­pears. And when you fi­nally ar­rive in Hāna, you’ll find it’s an­other be­gin­ning. There’s Ōheo and its ter­rac­ing streams and, be­yond that, a small Hawai­ian com­mu­nity called Ki­pahulu.
