How To Commit A Day Trip In Hana, Maui


Through our tiny staycation with good friends on Maui, we decided to dedicate a single complete day to lovely Hana. Hana is a remote town with endless waterfalls and beautiful scenes – the best spot to getaway and disconnect. (Seriously – there’s hardly any online/cell service at all.)

It is a bit rough to get to even though – with hundreds of turns and narrow passages, make positive you give oneself lots of time if you are going to go to. We suggest staying in Hana for 1-two nights if doable, as it is a extended day trip. (Really doable even though!) We left Lahaina at about six:30am, began down Hana Highway at about 7:30 am, and got to the finish of Hana at about 10:30am.

Waianapanapa is a single of our favored areas in Hana. The region reminds me of Neverland from Peter Pan – it is completely lovely! The black sand beach is need to see, while it is extra like pebbles than sand, and it hurts a bit to stroll on lol. Take caution at this beach, as the waves can get pretty rough.
