THINGS TO DO IN HANA
Hana Town Center
Get a glimpse of community life by taking a stroll through the Town Center and browse the shops. The bank, post office, Hana Ranch Restaurant, florist, Hana Ranch Store and several gift shops are located here. Town Center is just a five-minute walk from the hotel.
Wai'anapanapa State Park
Walk along the ancient "King's Trail," explore a legendary freshwater cave, discover important archeological sites, visit Maui's only black-sand beach and of course, it all overlooks the Pacific Ocean.
Kapueokahi (the lone owl) is commonly referred to as "Hana Bay." It was the major shipping port for the sugar companies. Today, this quarter-mile slice of black and white sand is a favorite with local families for swimming, snorkeling and strolling. Snorkeling equipment is available for purchase in the gift shop.
