Things To Do In Maui

Updated on February 22, 2013

Maui. The name has long since been equated as bright sun, vast stretch of sand and breathtaking beaches. When people are asked where there dream vacation would be, Maui is sure to rank in the top five. In fact, it is considered as one of the best places by travel magazines.

Yet, beyond Maui's endless span of beaches there are several other things to do and we have put a list together to aid you in making the most out of your trip.

A. Haleakala National Park

Set foot on the world's largest volcano. It's peak is also the highest point in Maui. Nothing to worry about though, as the volcano had been dormant for ages. To reach the top, one can take the two-hour drive along the winding roads of the park.


The volcano top is a great place where one can stargaze or witness the sunrise. The volcano is not the only attraction in the park, the Seven Sacred Pools of Oheo Gulch can be reached via a four-mile trek on the park's popular Pipiwai trail. And if one feel's up to it, the park provides two campsites, so visitors can explore more of the wilderness on the next day.

The Road to Hana

Running along its east coast side, the road to Hana is Maui's most famous road. It is also considered as the world's most romantic road with its seemingly endless display of magnificent forest, beautiful beaches, amazing lava cliffs and relaxing waterfalls. Going back, one can take a few moments to gaze at the windsurfers at Hookipa Beach Park.


The Molokini Island

Unbelievable as it may seem, but this crescent-shaped island located about 3 miles from the south coast of Maui is actually the crater of an extinct volcano. The island provides a safe haven for birds and marine life, which one can discover by snorkeling on its clear waters. The island is actually considered as one of the word's best snorkeling and diving sites.


The Town of Lahaina

To educate oneself with the rich history of Maui, he must head off to the town of Lahaina. The Lahaina Heritage Musem is just one among those that exhibits the development of Hawaiian societies. The Maui Ocean Center, on the other hand, offers a close encounter with the various exotic Hawaiian marine life, like stingrays, turtles and sharks. Also, if one visits the island in the months of November to April, they may have the chance to see some humpback whales.


Old Lahaina Luau - for an authentic Hawaiian experience featuring music, dancing, food, and fun. This is one of the best rated Luaus in Maui


Iao Needle State Park located in Central Maui, this park is known for its lushness and needle like shaped rock formations. It will be a great sight to see during your stay.
