The Thompson Family shares their top 5 Hits from their recent trip to Maui, Hawaii. If you’re thinking of visiting Maui this a must-read to find out how to spend your time there!
HIT ? Kapalua Beach
Located in the Northwestern most part of the island, Kapalua was the best snorkeling we had on our trip! We saw several sea turtles in addition to so many different colorful fish and coral. It looked like something out of a go pro advertisement video!
HIT ? Road to Hana
The Road to Hana is a highway that goes around the east side of the island. Start early in the morning so you don’t have to drive back in the dark. Use the Gypsy app to make the most of it and best decisions about where to stop along the way. The official website can also be helpful and is found here. Stop at a road stand for fresh banana bread and shave ice. Make sure you have time at the end to hike Makahiku falls, Bamboo forest, and Waimoku Falls. Breathtaking!!
HIT ? Haleakala volcano
Driving up through the clouds to the top of the volcano is breathtaking. It’s high enough you can even see some of the other Hawaiian islands and it is an amazing, different landscape at the top. This volcano is a national park and rightly so, It’s a beautiful drive with views of the vast ocean. The Gyspy app gives great historical and informational facts as you drive to all areas of the island.
HIT ? Kamole III Beach
Kamole is a series of 3 beaches with Kamole III being one of the most popular beaches in Maui due to its excellent break for boogie boarding. Due to its popularity among both locals and tourists, it can get crowded on weekends and holidays so be aware of that when planning your trip.
HIT ? Luau at the Grand Wailea
This activity is a little more on the expensive side (as are most of these kinds of experiences in Hawaii) but experiencing a cultural experience like this was fun. Here’s a brochure put out by the website that outlines the evening. It may seem touristy (and some of it probably is) but they do attempt to do these kinds of experiences justice. It was yummy food and great entertainment for our family! Definitely a nice way to spend an evening in Hawaii.
