“Holiday in Hana” is how Jeff sees this tropical rain forest village. Hana is located at the eastern end of the Hawaiian island of Maui and is one of the most isolated communities in the state.
The Hana Highway, also known as the “highway to heaven” is a winding, adventurous, 52-mile-long highway that features 600 hairpin turns and 54 one-lane bridges. When it comes to driving the infamous Hana Highway, it’s the journey, not the destination, that is the main attraction. There are few words that can describe the sheer natural beauty of the drive with its cliffs cloaked in green, bamboo jungles, tropical flowers, tranquil ponds, scenic vistas, lush valleys bursting with giant waterfalls and rainbows along the way.
When visiting Hana, be sure to picnic at the Waianapanapa State Park alongside it’s beautiful black sand beach.
