The town of Hāna, known as “The Heart of Old Hawai’i” is a small, remote and traditional village located on the easternmost end of the island of Maui.

The winding “Road to Hāna” is famous for its stunning coastlines, lush forest, scenic pastoral landscapes, world-class beaches, rich history, Hawaiian cultural practice, and friendly local people. It is recognized as one of the premier destinations in Hawaii, and one of the most popular visitor activities on Maui.
The East Maui region—through which the Hana Highway passes—is comprised of four traditional moku, or districts: Ko‘olau, Hāna, Kīpahulu and Kaupō. Along with the town of Hāna itself, East Maui or Maui Hikina also includes numerous small communities spread out along the coastline, each with their own distinct characters, while also sharing much in common.
For visitors to Hāna and East Maui, with aloha we invite you to come to our places and learn what makes Maui Kahikina so special. We only ask that you come with aloha and respect. Drive with Aloha while on the Road to Hāna. And Maka’ala—be aware and be safe!
