No two neighborhoods are alike on Maui. Here are a few you will want to check out while on the island.
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.
