East of Maui: Hana

About Hana

Hāna is located at the eastern end of the island of Maui and is one of the most beautifully lush and tropical, yet private and isolated communities in the State. It is reached mainly via the Hana Highway, a long, winding, 52-mile-long (84 km) highway along Maui's northern shore and also using boats.

Hana Town Center

After you’ve navigated the more than 600 white-knuckle turns and 50 bridges along Hana Highway, you’ll enter Hana—a charming small town where time seems an abstract concept and aloha is a way of life. With a tiny population of less than 1,000 people, Hana is small with few shops, including the Hasegawa General Store.

Hana Highway

The Hana Highway is a 64.4-mile-long stretch of Hawaii Routes 36 and 360 which connects Kahului to the town of Hana in east Maui. To the East of Kalepa Bridge, the highway continues to Kipahulu as Hawaii Route 31.

Waianapanapa State Park / Black Sands Beach

Waiʻanapanapa State Park is a 122-acre state park in Hana. It is located at the end of Waiʻanapanapa Road off Hana Highway at mile marker 32. The Park features a small black sand beach (known as ‘Black Sands Beach’) in a cove with a lava tube and more.

Red Sands Beach

Red Sand Beach on Kaihalulu Bay is a pocket beach on the island of Maui, Hawaii on Kaʻuiki Head. Red Sand Beach is a dramatic and beautiful hidden cove unlike any other. The ocean outside the cove is almost always a surreal blue and rages relentlessly against the dramatic coastline.


Kipahulu is a remote farming community about 10 miles (16 km) south of Hana - a paradise of rainforests, waterfalls, pools, mountain valleys and sweeping ocean views. A popular Kipahulu attraction is Oheo Gulch, also known as the Seven Sacred Pools. Several hiking trails, including the Pipiwai Trail to Waimoku Falls are located in this area.
