Untouched beauty and natural scenery flourish at Hana Town
, the islands’ “Last Hawaiian Place.” Maybe it’s the small town feeling that perpetuates it, or maybe the lush forests and the revitalizing Hana Bay
draw tourists and residents to Hana Town
. If you’re wondering what Maui really looked like in the 1970s and earlier, travel the Hana Highway
and visit Hana Town
—it’s been relatively unchanged for decades.
In the 19th century, Hana was a bustling town riding the wave of the sugar cane industry. Plantations were doing big business, and the trek from Pa’ia to Hana was a daily journey for many sugar cane field workers. Today, Hana Town
is a small, friendly community welcoming visitors who want to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of Maui’s most well-known destination.
