Visit Maui’s Beaches 

The alluring blue waters and sandy beaches are what probably brought you to Maui in the first place! After a day of hiking or exploring all of Maui’s offerings, set aside some beach time so that you can truly catch up on some rest and relaxation. From snorkeling to swimming, hanging out at the beach is the perfect way to spend the day. Our exceptional Maalaea Bay rentals are located in the most central location on Maui, allowing you easy access to the beach and Maalaea’s shops and restaurants.

Cruise Road to Hana

If there’s one thing you should add to your must-do in Maui list, it’s cruise the Road to Hana. The Road to Hana provides visitors with gorgeous views of Maui’s natural landscape. The road was completed in 1926 and features 620 curves and 59 single lane bridges taking anywhere from two to four hours due to the narrow roadway, tight turns, and one-lane bridges. You can either drive the Road to Hana yourself or use a tour guide, which we highly recommend. Make plans to stop and see the Twin Falls, Garden of Eden, and more.

Go on a Whale Watching Tour

If you’re visiting Maui during the months of January-March, then make sure to book a whale watching tour! During these months, Kohola (humpback whales), migrate from the north to Hawaii’s warm waters. Whale watching tours allow you to view these magnificent creatures up close, but if you’re lucky enough, you may be able to spot whale activity from your lanai!
