Fun things to do on Maui!

Written by Marie Glodt travel agent at Travel to Maui located in Hawaii.

As a resident of Maui and a Hawaiian travel agent I like to give my clients lots of ideas of fun things to do while they are here. Many things are very inexpensive or in some cases FREE!

Maui is captivating, romantic, charming and so much more!  Enjoy a day trip to the waterfalls in Hana, or or just sit back and relax and watch a great sunset at the beach!
Maui is blessed with wonderful weather year round. One of the many things I love about Maui is it has something for everyone.
Not a water person?  Not to worry Maui has lots of different options for your Hawaiian vacation.
Do you like adventure tours? For example a zip line cruise, or horseback ride, or a helicopter tour.

Love the ocean and want to snorkel on your own? The best location will be depending on the time of day (mornings are best) and the time of the year. Our surf comes from the North during the fall and winter months, and the South during the summer and early fall. So what might be an awesome snorkel spot when your friends were here in December might be a terrible spot for you in the summer.
Another great option is to go on a snorkel boat. Molokini crater is a marine reserve just off the coast of Maui.
Want to see a waterfall up close? Looking for rainbows in Hawaii? Then the road to Hana is for you. This 75 mile drive is best when planned as an all day event. The reason is the road is very curvy, narrow, and often times just one lane.
The best tips I can give you for Hana would be: don’t go if you get carsick, pull over if you get a local behind you (or they will pass on a curve) and pack plenty to eat and drink. And don’t forget to fill up with gas before you leave your hotel!

Another popular day drive would be the dormant volcano of Haleakala Crater. This is a very popular destination at sunrise. But dress warmly as even in the summer this 10,000+ summit is in the 40’s or sometimes colder!

Maui has great beaches! This would include Kaanapali Beach, Makena Cove, Kihei, Big and Little Beaches, Kapalua and Napali.

One of my favorite beaches would be Big Beach in Makena. This is located on the south side of Maui. This means expect big surf in the summer months and use caution as no life guard is present.
As you can see there are many things to do on the Magical island of Maui. Check out these great videos on youtube from the Hawaii Visitor Bureau:
