Some more happy moments from Maui - I always like to share a bit of a "guide" when I head somewhere new, so I am going to share a few spots we discovered on our adventure!
Big Beach (my favourite, really long with white sand, so nice!)
D.T Fleming Beach
-Chutes and Ladders - Make sure to check the tide, it can be dangerous & you also have to be prepared to climb down a rope ladder - A bit sketchy but cool! It is on The Road To Hana at Mile 37 - Park on the side of the road where the trees look "burnt".
-Haleakala Crater- Make sure to make a reservation & bring something warm, it is chilly up top - Also, you can stop for banana macadamia nut pancakes afterwards at Kula Lodge.
-Black Rock - The perfect jumping spot! On the North end of Ka'anapali Beach
-Nakalele Blowhole - There is a heart shaped rock here, so cool! Tide can be sketchy, make sure to check the tide before you go.
-Molokini Crater - A great place to snorkel to see tons of fish! We headed out on a sunrise tour with Kai Kanani Sailing, and it was spectacular - We saw dolphins, tons of fish and turtles, and they had coffee & tons of food on the boat. A really sweet way to start the day!
-Twin Falls - The easiest waterfall to access! At 45 mile mark on the Road To Hana- You can park and walk to the first falls within 5 minutes, and there is a huge snack stand and washrooms out front, so it is a good place to visit with children. The water is refreshing and you can jump at the first fall, so it is fun! If you want to go where the crowd is a little thinner, you can walk up the the top fall.
-Wailua Falls - On Road To Canada at 45 mile marker. A short path to falls
-Waimoko Falls and Bamboo Trails - Super cool path surrounded by bamboo! Above Ohio Gulch off of Pipiwai Trails. It is a longer hike, 4 miles round trip (2-2.5 hours)
-Hanawi Falls- Make sure to walk down to the 2nd pool
-Lahaina- Really cute town on the side of the ocean with tons of shops & restaurants to visit (great area to watch the sunset)
-Pa'ia Town - Gives a really local feel, located on the North Shore - Very cute shops and restaurants, also has some amazing beaches close by (But check the weather, the wind on this side of the island can be intense!)
-Aloha Wow Wow - Great Acai Bowls
-Fork & Salad- Healthy Build Your Own Salads
-Belle Surf Cafe- The cutest decor, the most delicious coconut latte's and really lovely books & gifts you can purchase. A must!
-Mana Foods - Located in Pa'ia Town, it is a really wonderful organic grocery store and offers a huge variety of yummy foods & pre made goodies so it is perfect for grabbing lunch for a beach picnic.
-Humuhumunukunukuapua'a Restaurant at Grand Wailea - Yup, this is the real name! Reserve table 70 if you want a super romantic evening, it has a private view so it is perfect for that special evening.
Until next time when I can add more to the guide!
