Best of Maui
When looking for things to do in Maui, stop by some of the world-famous beaches for breathtaking sights. Makena Beach (aka “Big Beach”) is one of the largest beaches on the island while Kaanapali Beach is West Maui’s “signature” beach. For a more local scene, experience Launiupoko Beach Park, south of Lahaina. It offers natural pools, perfect for everyone.
Hike to the Iao Needle in Iao Valley State Park to see one of Maui’s most iconic landmarks (it’s best in the morning) or visit the highest point on the island, Haleakala and take in the most magnificent sunrise. Standing on this dormant volcano while the sun rises above the Valley Isle will take your breath away. Bonus: the Haleakala crater is literally the quietest place on earth. (The Haleakala National Park requires reservations to watch the sunrise here.)
Road to Hana
Where does the Road to Hana lead? Easy: Hana. When staying in Maui, take a drive down Hana Highway (HI-360), which spans for 52 miles with over 600 tight turns and 50 bridges! The drive can last 3 hours to a full day, depending on how many pictures you stop to take and authentic, roadside food stands you visit. Highway 360 leads to the quaint town of Hana, where “aloha” is a way of life.
