Ka ʻĀina O Ka Makani Kāʻili Aloha
Land of the love-snatching wind.
This area of the coast has been inhabited by native people for hundreds of years and remains an integral part of a thriving culture. Visitors to the Kīpahulu District are treated to views of waterfalls, sweeping ocean vistas, and Hawaiian cultural experiences.
The Kīpahulu District of Haleakalā National Park can be accessed by driving 12 miles past the town of Hāna, on the famous Hāna Highway that circumscribes the northeast coast of the island of Maui.
There are plenty of opportunities for visitors to experience the wonders of Kīpahulu. You can take a hike! Observe the streams from the Pīpīwai trail and see if you can spot the freshwater shrimp and rock-climbing goby.
