This resort situated in the Maui County of the world-famous Hawaii and is one of the island?s hidden gems. Hana boasts some stunning scenery and even during the drive to get there from the mainland tourists will be treated to some memorable sights. But those who like to mix their R&R with a bit of adventure will find that there are also many outdoor activities to be done in this locale. And thanks to the warm year-round temperatures, visitors don?t have to wait for summer or winter to head to Hana. In terms of accommodations there are options galore in this resort. Holiday houses and cosy cottages that can accommodate groups of 2 to 11 travellers are the most attractive choice. Some of them boast incredible ocean views.
Whenever one thinks of a tropical coastal destination like Hawaii, stretches of fine sand bordered by turquoise waters is the first image that comes to mind. Hana, being such a locale, does not disappoint in this regard. Hamoa Beach offers tourists the opportunity to spread their work-weary bones on soft golden sand as they watch the waters of the Pacific roll ashore. The waters off this shore are safe for swimming. Hana Beach Park also offers the same comforts. But even during the ride to Hana is an exceptional experience. The road meanders through some of the most glorious scenery featuring lush unspoilt rainforests broken by the odd waterfall. It also offers wonderful viewpoints from which to view the coastline and the deep blue.
For those willing to get an up-close view of the diverse marine life in these parts, a snorkelling expedition at Waianapanapa State Park is highly recommended.
Those who enjoy a hike will be delighted to take on the Pipiwai Trail as it offers the reward of seeing the 400-foot Waimoku Falls.
Situated about 10 miles away from Hana is the Haleakala National Park, one of the must-visit places in Maui. This park covers the geological gamut, bringing high mountain peaks, beautiful coastline and, believe it or not, stretches of desert together in a highly satisfying tour. The sunrises and sunsets seen from this corner of Hawaii are exquisitely beautiful and unlike anything seen anywhere else in the world. Hiking here as one would expect is an incredible experience, yielding one picturesque scene after another.
There are few places blessed with the wonderful all year-round warm weather that Hana, and indeed most of Hawaii, enjoys. From to January to December, temperatures remain above 27°C and rise to 31°C on the higher side. Most of the rainfall recorded here falls between December and March. But monthly average rainfall does not exceed 75mm and those heading to Hana for their summer holidays probably won?t see any rainfall.
An air taxi to Hana Airport is how most visitors get into this locale. To get there they will first have to fly to Maui?s Kahalui Airport and grab another flight.
