Explore the Wonders of Maui

story by: Inspire Magazine

You can't beat the island of Maui for its natural charm and splendid scenery. From strolling the beaches and hiking in the jungle to watching out for whales, it's a nature-lover's paradise.

TAKE A STEP BACK IN TIME
Start off in the glorious streets of Lahaina, a historic town that was once Hawaii's capital and a whaling village. Take in the old-worldly feel of this destination by wandering Front Street. Travel the self-guided Lahaina Historic Trail and walk in the footsteps of those from days gone by.

WATCH FOR WHALES
Head out for a spot of whale-watching. West and South Maui are famous for their clear water and calm conditions, making it easy to spot humpback whales December through to April. Watch as the creatures playfully blow water spouts up into the air and splash around right before your eyes. Great island vantage points for spotting whales also include McGregor Point lookout, Kihei, Wailea and Ka’anapali.

PARTY LIKE A HAWAIIAN
Experience a lua’u, a traditional Hawaiian party and feast with plenty of entertainment. Savour the flavours of food cooked in earth ovens, known as imu. Kalua pig, coconut pudding and Hawaiian taro are all on the menu. Watch hula performances, listen to local songs and settle into the laidback and friendly Hawaiian way of life.

DELVE INTO THE UNDERWATER WORLD
Maui's a great place to take the plunge and explore the underwater world. Snorkel or scuba dive to come face to face with an array of bright coral, friendly sea turtles and tropical fish all colours of the rainbow. Some of the top spots are the northern section of Ka’anapali Beach near Black Rock, or the small island of Molokini, which is just southwest of Maui.
