There’s a saying, “Maui No Ka Oi,” or “Maui is the best.” Whether or not the statement holds true, it’s probably how you’ll feel when you visit this romantic island paradise. From lush rainforests and pristine beaches to the moonlike landscape of its highest peak, Haleakala, “The Valley Isle” offers endless possibilities for adventure and relaxation.
When you’re in Maui, you’ll find an endless list of things to do. Witness a spectacular sunrise from high atop Maui’s dormant volcano with a Haleakala Sunrise Special tour. Daring souls can even ride a bike down the cliff later that morning on a Haleakala Summit Deluxe Bike Experience. Or stay and explore the magnificent 30,000-acre Haleakala National Park. Take a Haleakala Crater 4-Mile Hike, an exhilarating Bike’N Zip or a horseback ride through this magical terrain, nearly 10,000 feet above the sea. Stay long enough, and you can even watch the skies burst with color at sunset before a million stars illuminate the night.
Another must-do activity on your vacation is snorkeling the crescent-shaped Molokini Crater, which peers starkly above the azure waters off Maui. This unique underwater preserve and bird sanctuary offers some of the best snorkeling in Hawaii. Experience an exhilarating afternoon on a Maui snorkel tour aboard the Four Winds glass-bottom catamaran.Explore Central Maui’s serene emerald landscape at Iao Valley State Park or take a West Maui Horseback Ride. Head towards Upcountry Maui on a Haleakala Upcountry Van Tour and discover otherworldly volcanic landscapes, cowboys, and fresh, eucalyptus-scented breezes.
