Hana

— 3 nights
Hana is one of the most isolated communities in Hawaii, with a permanent population of just over 1,000 people.
Hana Coast Gallery and Kahanu Garden are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Escape the urban bustle at Hana Highway - Road to Hana and Hamoa Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Hana: Haleakala Crater (in Haleakala National Park) and Huialoha Church (in Kaupo). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Wai'anapanapa State Park, get great views at Epic Experience Maui, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Wananalua Congregational Church, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Red Sand Beach - Kaihalulu Beach.

To find more things to do, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Hana road trip website.

Crown Jewel of Maui

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
Take a break from the city and head to Ka'anapali Beach and Napili Beach. Get some cultural insight at Lahaina Front Street and Saint Theresa Roman Catholic Church. Explore Lahaina's surroundings by going to Helicopter Tours (in Kahului), The Awakening Church (in Kihei) and Wailea (Wailea Beach, Makena Beach, &more). There's still lots to do: get outside with Outdoor Activities, kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, get engrossed in the history at Alexander & Baldwin Sugar Museum, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Lahaina United Methodist Church.

The Valley Isle
The second largest of the eight major Hawaiian Islands, Maui features a rugged landscape ranging from high mountain peaks to deep valleys. Half of Maui lies within 8 km (5 mi) of the coastline, and most tourists come for the sandy beaches, many of them backed by fashionable resorts offering every modern convenience. Diversity of tourist attractions is Maui's major allure, with each of the island's shores offering a different set of vacation ideas. You can swim with dolphins, snorkel with sea turtles, or hike over the otherworldly landscapes of the world's biggest dormant volcano. A foodie paradise, the island also features dozens of small farms and gourmet restaurants.
