Hana overnight



Description:

Hana trips are not for sissies! You'll want to leave well before dawn, so as to arrive on the North Shore in time to enjoy the sunrise (and an early swim?) on Baldwin Beach. Then, on to one of the local cafes for a continental breakfast and a picnic to go (and lots of water), as you'll want to stop frequently on the un-commercialized road to Hana. Before you hit the highway proper, stop at the overlook for an early glimpse of the world-class windsurf action at Paia's Ho`okipa Beach. Now, you're on the most beautiful highway on Earth and there are more possibilities than time and/or stamina might allow. The Kaumahina and Pua`a Ka`a State Waysides offer glimpses of what Maui might have been like in pre-contact days. Enjoy botanical walks at the Kaenae and Garden of Eden Arboretums, then on to Kahanu Gardens and the Ka`eleku Caverns self-guided tour, finishing the afternoon with a swim at the black sand beach at Waianapanapa State Park. Check in at your hotel in time to wash up and head for the Hana Ranch Restaurant for dinner and, if not yet ready for bed, a stroll through the Hana-Maui Hotel in the center of town. Sweet dreams! You won't want to waste a moment in Hana, so you're up early enough to stop at Hasegawa's General Store for provisions on your way to the Kipahulu area of Haleakala National Park at dawn. You've brought your bathing suit and will swim in the Seven Sacred Pools, hike Oheo Gulch and the Kuloa Overlook and Pipiwai trails. Back in Hana town, check out the Hana Cultural Center and Hana Coast Gallery, then swim at Hana Beach Park. You will want to head back towards Pa`ia early enough to arrive before sunset. There, you can visit the Maui Crafts Guild, then have a seafood supper at the Fish Market restaurant before heading back to your hotel, tired and happy.
