Maui has been described as a bucket list vacation destination. Filled with beauty at every turn, this exciting place has turned into the traveler’s best friend. Whether you enjoy food, adventure, or just relaxing in an exquisite location, Maui has something for everyone. Not sure how to fill your sun-filled days? Here is a list of five fun things to get you started.
Go Kayaking or Paddleboarding
Book with a group or book with just your party. Whatever you choose, you can’t go wrong by doing a kayak or paddleboard tour. See the wonderful waters surrounding Maui alongside an expert guide who will take you to the incredible sights you can only see from the water. You’ll probably encounter a friendly sea turtle or two on these tours, and they’re a delight for anyone.
The Molokini Crater is one of only three volcanic calderas in the world, and it’s located just off Maui’s shores. This marine sanctuary is a favorite for any ocean lover to see the rich diversity of the marine life due to the wonderful clarity of the water. This is because the crater is made of rock and is absent of any sediment to hinder a diver’s or snorkeler’s visibility.
Watch Dolphins and Whales
Watching wildlife is a thrilling experience. Many dolphins and whales call Maui’s waters home, and they’re a popular attraction. You can even swim with them! Enjoy seeing bottlenose and spinner dolphins or humpback whales, or simply tag along for a scenic cruise on the calm waters that everyone in the family will love.
Look past the beaches, and you’ll see that Maui offers excellent hiking and incredible views. Explore the red sea cliffs of West Maui, experience the iconic Road to Hana, pick your way through the lava fields of South Maui, or trek to Kahakuloa for unforgettable banana bread made from bananas grown right on the island.
Rent a Slingshot
Maui has some of the most breathtaking views. Why not add a bit of flair to your sightseeing trip? Don’t rent a car that anyone can drive, and avoid the big, crowded buses that don’t let you see everything this beautiful place has to offer. Explore with the air filling your hair, and let your adventure begin with a wonderful trip around Maui in a Polaris Slingshot. Discover the magnificent wonders of Maui at your own pace rather than what everyone else will see when they take one of the bus tours.
