Trip Planner USA  /  Hawaii  /  Maui  /  Kipahulu
Kīpahulu is an unincorporated community in the Hāna district of Maui, Hawaii. It is a sustainable farm community located in a remote area in the southeast part of Maui.Location and accessKīpahulu is unincorporated and is located in the southeastern part of Maui, south of Hāna and east of Kaupō. The only land access to the area is from the north by Hana Highway driving about 45 minutes past Hāna or from west by highway 31 (Piilani Highway) which was reopened after it was closed for a period of time due to earthquake damage. Piilani Highway is the only major road in Kīpahulu and all populated areas are located along this road.Kīpahulu currently does not have any electric or water utilities. The only public utility is the telephone. Water is obtained from the streams coming down from Haleakalā and these services are provided to the community by Kaupo Ranch, Ltd.HistoryThe first written description of Kīpahulu was made by La Pérouse in 1786 while sailing along the southeast coast of Maui in search of a place to drop anchor: I coasted along its shore at a distance of a league (three miles) …. We beheld water falling in cascades …. The inhabitants, which are so numerous that a space of 3–4 leagues may be taken for a single village. The huts are on the coast so that the habitable part of the island is less than one half of a league. After passing Kaupō no more waterfalls are seen, and villages are fewer.
