The Best Resorts on Maui
For a relaxing day, travel to Lahaina and wander around the seaside streets. Why not pop into a restaurant and sample the local cuisine? Head to Kaanapali Beach and laze on the stunning white sand.
Located in central Maui, Wailuku gives you a great insight into day to day life here. Wander along Market Street and view the wooden shop fronts. It is also within striking distance of Iao Valley, so journey here to see the iconic Iao Needle.
If you enjoy a round or two of golf, then Wailea is the place for you. There are three courses to choose from, Old Blue, Emerald and Gold. There are also plenty more dotted around the island. Select one of the five beaches in Wailea to relax on and soak up the views of the wondrous environs.
Sightseeing on Maui
You must visit Haleakala National Park on a trip here. Herein lies a volcano with craters that would not be out of place on the moon. Go hiking on one of the many paths and trails on offer in the park.
Maybe do some fishing along the coast or get on a boat and go sea fishing. There are many local companies that offer deep-sea fishing trips and a chance to catch Yellow Fin Tuna, Dorado and Marlin to give a few ideas of what is out there.
Engage in some whale watching from December to May. The best spots are nestled among the West Maui Mountains where the waters are calm.
Why not go for a scenic drive along the Hana Highway, which offers approximately 65 miles worth of scenic driving? The highway is also popular with tourists due to the number of waterfalls it passes. It is also in close proximity to a variety of beaches which prove to be great stopping-off points.
