Of all the places in Hawaii, or even just on Maui, that you could visit, why would you choose Hana? There are a number of reasons, depending on what you want to get out of your Hawaiian vacation. After a very long trip from the US, you want to make every minute of your trip count.
Of course, there are public
beaches nearly everywhere in Maui. Beyond the sun and the surf, this jewel of
Maui County can offer things that you won’t find in many other places.
What makes Hana so special?
It’s A Beautiful Tropical Rainforest
Hana sits on the east
side of the island of Maui, and is one of the wettest places on earth. The
average rainfall is close to 80 inches, and the temperatures stay between 65F
and 85F year-round.
You’ll see beaches with red and black sands, bamboo forests, waterfalls jungle areas, and amazing groves of rainbow eucalyptus trees you’ll have to see to believe. Hanging vines that cover your drive from the airport. Palm trees, lava rock coast, and the sound of crashing waves are just part and parcel of going to and staying in Hana.
Visit the Hana Cultural Center & Museum for a tour of real Hawaii. You can also visit places like the Wai’anapanapa State National Park, or the Haleakala National Park, for even more rainforest sights and experiences.
It Isn’t A Big City
In fact, Hana is a small town that has worked hard to preserve the native Hawaiian way of life in spite of urbanization in other parts of the Islands.
There are no high-rise
buildings, suburbs, or other big-city developments. No public transportation or
“hot touist spots,” either. This is a city where you can truly get away from
everything, and enjoy your time with nature.
Hana is a place you’ll
want to stay for a few days, at least. How else would you get to see just the
places and things we have to offer?
The Famous Road To Hana Is An Attraction By Itself
waterfalls like no other. Beautiful landscapes that are as incredible nature
intended. You’ll see this and more on The Road To Hana, which is part journey
and part destination during your visit.
This 60-mile long
excursion is carved into the cliffs of a rainforest along the Pacific
coastline. This ride takes as long as four hours, and it’s not for the faint of
heart. This breathtaking journey is best with someone who knows how to drive
it. The right driver or tour guide will get you there and point out the amazing
things you’d miss if you were driving yourself. As one of the most famous road
trips in the world, you don’t want to miss anything.
Prefer to drive
yourself? Hang on tight! Rent a convertible, but be ready for anything,
including rain. It’s a rainforest, after all!
