There is a lot of history associated with Hana Bay in Hana.  The pier located here was the sight of the first sugar to leave the area being loaded onto freighters, in the time before steam-powered trucks began to carry Hana’s sugar crop to the rest of the island.  Back in the more distant past, the hill near the pier was the birthplace of Queen kaahumanu, favorite wife of King Kamehameha, who united all of the Hawaiian islands for the first time.  This lovely peir and the hill covered in ironwood trees and red soil represent big pieces of the history of Maui and of Hawaii.
