Towns, Villages, Outer Islands & Areas of Maui, Hawaii

  • Haleakala


    Haleakala Crater is one of the largest dormant volcanoes in the world. It rises to just over 10,000 feet and boasts views of the Big Island, Kaho'olawe, Lanai, Molokai and most of Maui. Haleakala National Park extends down to the ocean to the southeast at Kipahulu.

  • Kanaio Coast


    Hana is famous for the road leading to it, "The Road to Hana." The town of Hana is really an incredible place that is often overlooked. Many of the Hana residents rarely leave this charming area. The people of Hana are deeply prideful of their Hawaiian Roots and live at a pace unfamiliar to the rest of the world.
