First time in HI, 10 days in Hana

We are first timers to Hawaii and very much outdoor people. We will have a grill and kitchen amenities available. Any suggestions?! We are staying 10 days, so plenty of time to explore.

One thing you must, must do if you're going to be in Hana...do the motorized hang gliding. It is freakin' awesome. I'm 55 and was the youngest in our group of 4 to take the adventure. Armin, the pilot was absolutely fantastic. He will gear the excursion to suit your comfort. It is my lifetime best memory. Near there is the black sand beach. Safe travel and enjoy your time on Maui...where ever you are, it will be great.

Aloha TA forum friends! I posted a trip report but I'm not sure how to navigate this site very well...I called it 10 days Hana/Wailea. I guess you might find it under my screen name? Anyway, time of my life!!! Ended up staying 7 days in Hana (went to a treehouse for 2 nights) before heading to Wailea. What an adventure, and it was truly perfect! And no, I promise I didn't trespass!! ;) Hiking, surfing, swimming, biking....we really did it all! And...THANK YOU for the Highway to Hana: Mile by Mile recommendation. I think we saw almost every single item in that book, and its 100% accurate! (even the admission prices and hours of attractions!) Please don't hesitate to contact me or ask anything I may have left out. Honestly, I can't wait to go back...wouldn't it be nice to just pick up and move!!

Hmmm, you haven't posted a trip report on the forums ( according to your screen name) - was it a review on one of the locations you stayed at? I'm super curious to see it!

Hey flyvidak.....so glad you had a blast! We're on our sixth day having the best vacation ever. My best TA mess ups were my awesome double, triple and even once, quadruple posts. I know how to use my fancy phone much better now. :-) Deb

From experience, My husband and I just returned from our first trip to Hawaii this past October. We stayed 10 days. On our way back to the airport, we looked at each other and said, "we did this island (Maui) right." We spread our stay out on different parts of the island. Our last 3 nights were spent in Hana. If I had to do it all over again, I would do it the same way. There is too much to experience on the entire island. The road to Hana is hours long. We bought groceries before the trip to Hana and I have to agree with all other comments. Our stay in Hana was magnificent as we wanted to experience everything that Hana offers. With that said, Hana is your opportunity to experience "real Hawaii." It is very isolated and I'm so pleased that we experienced other parts of the island as well. Trust me, three days in Hana is perfect and enough. So consider Hana, but also consider other parts of the Island. You won't regret it.
