An aerial view of Hana.

For many years, Hana was actually closer to the big island of Hawaii than it was to the rest of Maui – only 34 miles of ocean seperated Hana Bay and the other island.  In fact, the naturally fortified Hana Bay was the landing site for over 1000 canoe fleets gathering for battle, usually warriors from Hawaii coming to invade.  Today the Road to Hana has brought Hana together with the rest of Maui, but the big island can still be seen just off the coast on a clear day.
