Destination(s): Maui

You'll thank me on day four!
Having grown up on Maui, I know what beaches and experiences should not be missed if only on the island for a short weekend/3-day escape. read more about If you only have 3 days on Maui...

Molokini

Molokini

Molokini is an uninhabited, partially submerged volcanic caldera or cinder cone, whose summit is only 160 feet above sea level. It is located two and a half miles off Maui's coast, between South Maui and the island of Kaho`olawe, and is the only underwater park in Hawai`i, sanctuary to approximately 250 aquatic species, many of them native, and well-preserved coral reefs. Its crescent shape protects the park area against strong currents and waves, providing the ideal snorkeling spot, with an average depth of only ten feet and visibility of 150 feet in all directions. In addition to the countless tropical fish, it is common to see aquatic birds, harmless sharks, turtles and an occasional seal. As Maui's trade winds usually arrive in the afternoon, early morning snorkeling reservations are recommended. read more about Molokini

Ho'okipa Beach

Ho'okipa Beach

  • Mile # 9, Hana Highway
  • (just past Paia Town)
  • tel:808-572-8122
  • Visit website
  • Pa'ia, 96779

This is the world's best place for windsurfing, the former site of two major world-class competitions. Windsurfing at this beach is for experts only, however, due to the strong surf. A 1/8 mile coral reef makes Ho`okipa perfect for an early morning swim, however. "Jaws" (Peahi), a bit farther along the coast towards Hana, breaks only when there is a major North swell (usually in winter). Jet skis are used to take the surfers out once the waves hit 20 feet. Nearly seventy-foot waves here caused international headlines as the world's largest a few years ago. Ask a local surfer to take you. read more about Ho'okipa Beach

Road to Hana

Road to Hana

  • Highway 360
  • Maui, 96713

World famous for panoramic seascapes and towering waterfalls, the road to Hana has been selected as the most beautiful "highway" in the U.S. On Maui's east end, Hana town, because of its ongoing battle against overdevelopment and the destruction of the Hawaiian culture, is known as "The Land That Time Forgot." Get a very early start (rent a convertible), as you will want to stop many times to swim (bring a towel), photograph and picnic on the local breadfruit and coconut. Even better, take the tour and relax! read more about Road to Hana
