Welcome to Hana Bay Harbor and
Wharf on the island of Maui.
Hana is located at the eastern end of the
island of Maui and is one of the most
isolated communities in Hawai'i. Hana is
reached mainly via the Hana Highway, a
long, winding, 52-mile-long highway
along Maui's northern shore.
Like most of Hawaii, Hana was probably
first settled between 500 and 800 AD by
The first sugar plantation in the area was
established by George Wilfong in 1849,
and by 1883 there were six plantations
operating in the area. By 1946, however,
the last sugar plantation had closed,
leading plantation workers to move
mostly to the west side of Maui. That
same year saw the opening of the
Ka-'uiki Inn, today known as the Hotel
Hana-Maui, which helped transition the
economy towards tourism.
The winding, famously scenic Hana
Highway was completed in 1926.
Originally paved with gravel, it provided
the first land vehicle access to the town.
Hana's population peaked in the first half
of the twentieth century, with a
population of about 3500.
