Between Haʻena and Hanalei rests a little neighborhood steeped in ancient history. The narrow, green recesses of Wainiha Valley were the last hideout of the menehune, the legendary 'little people' of the islands. Today the valley remains as it was in the old days: a holdout for Hawaiians, though some vacation rentals have popped up in the area. An unwelcoming vibe is not uncommon. When the locals stare you down, don’t take it personally.
