DESCRIPTION

The road to Hana is a gorgeous, winding coastal road with breathtaking valleys, lush rain forests and spectacular waterfalls. The first stop is the quaint old sugar mill town of Paia, with its wide variety of ethnic crafts, art, clothing, jewelry, and antique shops surrounded by sugar cane and pineapple fields.

Just a few minutes east, is the world famous Ho`okipa Beach Park. This breath-taking white sand beach boasts perfect wind-surfing conditions and wind surfers from around the globe travel here to challenge themselves against the ever-changing waves.

Next, is Twin Falls, which is a must for it is amazing, a memorable photo opportunity. You can hike the short distance to the tropical waterfalls or just refresh yourself with a sugar cane juice and enjoy the lush landscape. Back on the road, we pass through the rural area of Haiku and you may see banana patches, sugar cane blowing in the wind, and forests of guava, avocados, papaya, palm, and Kukui nut trees.

You will be entranced with the historic area of Huelo as it is adorned with vistas of bamboo, remarkable cliffs, and exceptional ocean views that certainly qualify as breathtaking!

Visiting the small community of Keanae will be like stepping into the past. Located on an peninsula which is an old lava flow, it is graced by Keanae Congregational Church, built in 1860 of lava rocks and coral mortar.

Dont miss an opportunity to feast on the best banana bread in the Hawaiian islands and possibly catch a view of the honu,Hawaiian sea turtles.

Next, get a birds eye view at the Keanae lookout that will take your breath away, with its panoramic views of the Keanae peninsula, and its taro fields.

Experience Honokalani Beach, a gorgeous black sand beach at Waianapanapa State Park. This magnificent beach is set among lava cliffs and the sand is actually small, smooth, lava pebbles. A small sea arch, sea caves, and seaside lava tubes are located right on the beach. An ancient Hawaiian footpath leads to the beach area which appears like a vivid dream, with bright green jungle foliage on three sides and cobalt blue water lapping at its feet. Spectacular!

Quaint Hana Town! Hasegawa General Store, established in 1910, is Hana's oldest family owned business and a famous Hana landmark. Hamoa Beach is a long strand of soft grey sand tucked between lava rock outcroppings, in the shape of a half moon. It is rimmed by boulders of lava and guarded by tall volcanic needles. At Koki Beach overlook, you will see a red rill (which is actually an eroding cinder cone) known as Ka Iwi o Pele, meaning "the bones of Pele". At the base of the cone is the only red sand beach in all of Hawaii. From this vantage point, you can also get an excellent view directly offshore of `Alau Island, a seabird sanctuary with a 150-foot summit, topped by swaying coconut palms.

O`heo Gulch is also known as The Seven Sacred Pools. They are not particularly sacred and do not number seven, but they are a series of picturesque waterfalls and tranquil pools which flow through the O'heo Gulch into the ocean. The Pipiwai Stream feeds these falls and the numerous pools starting two miles inland.

Visit Charles A. Lindbergh's grave. The famed aviator lived his last days on this lush Hana coast. Today, he lies at rest on the serene grounds of the Palapala Ho'omau Church in lovely Kipahulu. The adjacent limestone coral church was built in 1857.Driving through the Kaupo district, with its rugged coastline, desert-like landscape, and unpaved roads you will think you are in the latest Indiana Jones adventure!
