Hana Town


Accessed primarily by the Road to Hana, Hana Highway (36 and 360), Hana Town is the most isolated town in the Hawaiian Islands. With a tiny population of less than 1,000 people, Hana is strongly “Hawaiian” having had less exposure to tourism and outside culture than any other area in Hawaii. The actual town of Hana is very small with few shops, including the Hasegawa General Store.

The East side of Maui is generally known as Hana. This area is home to the Oheo Gulch (Seven Sacred Pools), the Bailey Bridge (built by the Army Corps of Engineers), the Travaasa Resort (which is one of the nicest resorts in the State) and huge stretches of lush coastline, waterfalls, and vast rainforest. As winds from the Northeast sweep over the ocean, it pulls with it dense humidity. As this moisture rolls up Haleakala, it cools and precipitates on the Hana side making Hana one of the wettest places in the world.
