"It is an ancient Hapan defense—and it leads to the only place I can ever be truly alone."
―Tenel Ka Djo to Jacen Solo[src]

The Secret Way was a passageway that led to an island, and was not used very often. Paan trees were found on the island. In 35 ABY, Tenel Ka Djo took Jacen Solo to the island for some privacy using the Secret Way.
