Hana is one of the most isolated communities in Hawaii, with a permanent population of just over 1,000 people.
When in Hana, make a side trip to see Haleakala Crater in Haleakala National Park, approximately 54 minutes away. There's much more to do: take a memorable drive along Hana Highway - Road to Hana, enjoy the sand and surf at Hamoa Beach, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kahanu Garden, and admire the sheer force of Hanawi Falls.

To find maps, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Hana trip planning tool .

San Francisco to Hana is an approximately 9-hour combination of flight and car. You can also fly; or do a combination of train, flight, and car. Traveling from San Francisco to Hana, you'll gain 2 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from San Francisco in September, expect Hana to be somewhat warmer, temps between 90°F and 72°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Mon) early enough to travel to Lahaina.
