What’s There to do in Maui?
Maui, Hawaii has a lot of attractions. If you’re staying on Maui, you might be a honeymooner. Or you might just be into eco-tourism. Either way, there is something for you on this island. Here are a few of the top attractions in Maui:
- The Road to Hana is very famous. Hana is a sleepy town on the Eastern side of Maui. The road to get there is the true adventure—taking you along a winding and gorgeous landscape as you travel hours to get to Hana. Along the way you’ll see rainforests, tropical birds and waterfalls galore. You’ll also encounter more than 100 one way bridges, making the drive a bit harry. No worries though, you can hire a tour company to drive you in a mini coach so you can see the entire journey and snap photos along the way.
- If you want to see something on a different island, that’s not a problem. Hawaii interisland tours from Maui are quite popular and can be your gateway to Volcanoes National Park and Pearl Harbor. These tours are convenient options because you can get the complete Pearl Harbor experience in one day but still be back for dinner and to sleep in your own bed in your Maui resort. Consider a day trip to Oahu or an interisland tour to Kauai. You won’t regret traveling to another island for just one day.
- If you want to get some authentic Hawaiian culture, you’ll love attending a luau. The Maui Luaus are a way for visitors to better understand the Polynesian influence and history on the island. You’ll also be treated to a traditional Hawaiian feast and you’ll see some amazing hula dancing and even fire dancing!
- Finally, the sunrise over Haleakala is amazing and not to be missed. This tour picks you up around 3am and drives you to the top of Haleakala, Maui’s dormant volcano. More than 10,000 feet in the air, you’ll watch the sunrise from above the cloud line. Get your cameras ready but also be prepared with gloves and some warm layers! The altitude makes it cold up at the top of Haleakala, especially before the sun comes up. You can either take a mountain bike down the volcano or you can get back in your mini coach and snooze on the way back to your hotel. Either choice is a fine way to spend the morning!
