Maui

Maui

This laid back island is quintessential Hawai‘i. Small towns and social locals, you can park up solo on a beach with just your towel and your thoughts of what a beautiful place the island of Maui is. Be captivated by the changing landscapes around the island, take in that island air and forget what time of the day it is. In need of a shop? Visit Lahaina for boutique art galleries and outlet shops. While in this quaint town, where whaling ship crews once roamed, enjoy a cocktail while gazing out across the gorgeous blue sea to the neighbouring islands of Lana‘i and Moloka‘i. Get out and explore the beaches though, that’s the main attraction. There are resort laden beaches, long white sand beaches, secluded rocky coves, beaches fronted by parks and picnic areas, beaches for surfing, beaches for sandcastles – you get the picture…



SOME THINGS TO SEE AND DO IN MAUI



Road to Hana ROAD TO HANA

With over 600 hairpin turns and 54 narrow bridges over 104 kilometres of coastal road, the famous road to Hana is much less a thoroughfare as it is a life lesson. Slow down and enjoy the ride, there’s a surprise around every corner. 

Hiking Haleakala Crater HALEAKALA NATIONAL PARK
 

Rising more than 3000 metres from the sea, Haleakala is a dormant volcano that takes up 75% of the island of Maui and is one of its most memorable attractions. A sight not to be missed is watching the sunrise over the unusual lava forms. Don’t forget to rug up as it can be quite cool at the top of the mountain. On a clear morning you may even see the neighbouring islands of Hawai‘i, Lana‘i, Moloka‘i, O‘ahu and Kaho’olawe.

Makawao MAKAWAO
 

A thriving arts community in up-country Maui well worth visiting. Eclectic shops, boutiques and art galleries await, as well as the opportunity to watch artists at work.  A trip to Komoda Store and Bakery for a cream puff is worth the visit alone.

Stanley-Park IAO VALLEY STATE PARK
 
A peaceful, lush area centring around Iao Needle, a towering black rock pinnacle soaring over 365 metres high. It’s best to go in the early morning and there are lots of great hikes from which to admire the area’s rich foliage, natural pools and scenic mountain views.
