Maui is such a beautiful island! Although I’ve visited twice, there are things on this list that I’ve missed. Thanks for giving me a reason to go back at some point!
I am going for my second time this summer but this time I am taking my kids. We shall see how that goes. 😜
The whale watching looks so amazing there! Are there dolphins too?
There is! It is so cool because you can see the Dolphins interactive with the whales!
Maui is just a gorgeous place! That’s a great tip to use the time difference to easily get up early for the sunset hike. I know once I get used to the time zone, I won’t want to get up at 3am on vacation!
Exactly! 3 am is never a fun time to get up at but that first day when you acclimating it is MUCH easier! And really there is nothing like the Halekala Sunrise.
Thx for sharing your pics and suggestions … the whale watching looks great and the sunsets spectacular. Looks like a great place to visit
It is truly a beautiful place! I can’t wait to go back in August.
Thanks for sharing this nice and exhaustive Maui travel guide. The photographs tempt me to be there right now.
What is the drive like going the opposite of the traditional direction on the road to Hana? Is it harder to get across the one lane sections?
Hi Crystal! We drove this way in the morning when most people were starting their Hana Hwy on the opposite side so we hardly ran into any other cars. But there is just a few spots that don’t fit cars side by side and they have areas to pull over to allow the cars to pass. As you get closer to the Seven Sacred Pools area, it is a bit narrow but just drive slow around corners.
