Welcome to Hana

Surprisingly, Hana does not try to maximize its benefit from the many day-trippers who arrive each afternoon. This is one of the most Hawaiian communities in the state, with a timeless rural character, and also home to many transplants willing to trade certain privations for a slow, thoughtful and personal way of life in a beautiful natural setting. Though ‘Old Hawaii’ is an oft-used cliché, it’s hard not to think of Hana in such terms. Slow down, spend a night or two and enjoy it.
