Hana is one of the most isolated communities in Hawaii, with a permanent population of just over 1,000 people.
Get in touch with nature at Hana Highway - Road to Hana and Honokalani Black Sand Beach. Do some cultural sightseeing at Hana Coast Gallery and Laura Mango Art Gallery. Step out of Hana with an excursion to Haleakala Crater in Haleakala National Park--about 54 minutes away. There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Pools at Ohe'o, explore the different monuments and memorials at Charles Lindbergh's Grave, admire the sheer force of Wailua Falls, and kick back and relax at Red Sand Beach (Kaihalulu Beach).

For photos, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read Hana trip itinerary maker app .

Boston to Hana is an approximately 16-hour combination of flight and car. You can also fly; or do a combination of ferry, flight, and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Boston to Hana. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Boston in August, with highs in Hana at 90°F and lows at 73°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Sun) to allow time to drive to Kihei.

Stretching over 9.7 km (6 mi) of pristine south Maui coastline, Kihei is the island's driest and sunniest region, making it a perfect location for water activities and beach leisure.
Maria Lanakila Catholic Church and Old Lahaina Courthouse are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Visit Ka'anapali Beach and Wailea Beach Path for some beach relaxation. Get out of town with these interesting Kihei side-trips: Lahaina (Kahekili Beach Park & Lahaina Banyan Court) and D.T. Fleming Beach Park (in Kapalua). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Ho'okipa Beach Park, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, stroll through Keawakapu Beach, and look for all kinds of wild species at Honolua Bay.
