Maui is home to heavenly beaches and scenic beauty, making it one of the most popular islands to visit while on a Hawaii vacation. Although it is the second largest Hawaiian Island, Maui is less populated than expected and has a unique combination of sophisticated luxury and quaint small towns.
Known as the “Magic Isle,” Maui offers something for everyone. Some of the top activities in Hawaii are scuba diving, cruises, and whale watching. Excursions on Atlantis Submarines are also a popular way to discover the island’s unique underwater paradise.
Some of the best ways to see the beauty of the island are with Maui tours like Blue Hawaiian Helicopter Tours, guided tours to Hana with Discover Hawaii Tours and horseback riding with Mendes Ranch and Trail Rides. Other Hawaii attractions include bike excursions with Maui Downhill, an outfitter offering biking excursions down the Haleakala Crater, and NorthShore Zipline Canopy Tours.
Maui Beaches are another of the top activities as there are more than 80 beaches featuring over 120 miles of combined shoreline. Some of the best include Kaanapali Beach, Wailea Beach, Big Beach, Kihea Beach, Kahana Beach Park and Homoa Beach Park to name a few. These red, white and black sand beaches feature some of the world’s best surfing and windsurfing conditions, as well as fabulous spots to simply snorkel, swim and sunbathe.
Even More Things to Do in Maui
Other great attractions in Maui include exploring the Haleakala National Park, hiking through Iao Valley, strolling the seaside streets of Lahaina – a historic city brimming with art galleries and Hawaiian culture and discovering the unspoiled terrain of Hana, a scenic small town boasting incredible views. Culture-infused shows like Drums of the Pacific Luau, Old Lahaina Luau, and Ulalena are also top things to do in Maui.
