Things to do in Maui

Haleakala

It’s worth the early wake-up call to watch the sun rise over the volcanic crater.

Molokini Crater

One of the best snorkeling trips you can take on Maui. It’s home to giant sea turtles, whales and rock formations.

Surfing

To watch pro surfers, head to Honolulu Bay and Ho’okipa Beach. For beginners, try The Cove at Kalama Beach Park.

Road to Hana

Drive along this road with frequent cool stops such as waterfalls, bamboo forests and stunning coastal vistas.

Waterfalls

Maui has plenty of waterfalls including Wailua Fallas.

Mama's fish house

This is known as “the” place to eat on the island. It specializes in seafood and the aesthetic is classically Polynesian.

Luau

Enjoy a traditional Hawaiian feast and cultural celebration featuring music, dance and delicious island cuisine.

Beaches

Hawaii has some of the world’s most beautiful beaches and Maui has no shortage of them. My favorite is Wailea!

The Fish Tacos are a must, but if you’ve had it and want to go back the next day for more, try the Ono!!
