Next up on the itinerary: find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, observe the fascinating underwater world at Maui Ocean Center, admire the majestic nature at Iao Valley, and enjoy the sand and surf at Ho'okipa Beach Park.

Hana is one of the most isolated communities in Hawaii, with a permanent population of just over 1,000 people.
Venture out of the city with trips to Charles Lindbergh's Grave (in Kipahulu) and Haleakala Crater (in Haleakala National Park). There's much more to do: take a memorable drive along Hana Highway - Road to Hana, stroll through Pipiwai Trail, make a trip to Kalaloa Point, and take in the dramatic scenery at Hanawi Falls.
