Hiking: The area is home to some of the most breathtaking trails in Hawai’i. The Pipiwai Trail within Haleakala National Park is a popular choice, with its towering bamboo forests and stunning waterfalls. Another must-see hike is the Wai'anapanapa State Park Coastal Trail, which offers stunning views of the rugged coastline and the Pacific Ocean including access to the only black sand beach on the island. 2. Beach lounging: If you're looking for a more relaxing outdoor activity, consider spending a day at one of Hana's many beaches. Hamoa Beach is a local favorite, with its white sand and crystal-clear water. The Red Sand Beach is also worth a visit, with its unique red sand and turquoise water. 3. Leisurely water sports: For those more active water people, Hana has plenty of options! Snorkeling is a popular activity, with the area's clear waters and vibrant marine life. You can also try your hand at stand-up paddleboarding or kayaking. Kayaks can usually be rented locally, and you can add a stand-up paddleboard to your camper van reservation with us! 4. Surfing: You’re heading to Maui, so of course surfing would be on our list! Hit up spots like Koki Beach and Hamoa Beach for catching some waves, then grab lunch at local fave Hana Farms, Pranee Thai or one of the many food trucks/stands in Hana town. Overall, Hana and its surrounding areas offer some of the best outdoor activities in Hawai’i. Whether you're looking for a challenging hike, a relaxing day at the beach, or an adrenaline-pumping water sport, there's something for everyone in Hana! So pack your bags and get ready for an unforgettable outdoor adventure in one of Maui's most beautiful locations.
