Waiʻānapanapa State Park

Since we are talking about the beautiful places to visit, Waiʻānapanapa State Park has a certain uniqueness to it that you will rarely see in Maui. The most interesting thing about this state park is the black sand beach that is completely rare and unconventional from the white and regular sand beaches.

Black sand, turquoise blue water, and vibrantly colored foliage along the seashore present a sensational contrast and makes this place look absolutely exquisite. You can’t get enough of strolling around this scenic place.

Molokini Islet

If you are into mystical places and islands, you should definitely have a look at the Molokini islet. It is a small islet and the interesting thing about this islet is that it’s a crescent-shaped volcanic crater and looks absolutely stunning.

You will be up for a treat if you’re a fan of birds because the place is a Sanctuary to the Seabirds of the state of Hawaii.

Makana Beach

Since Maui is an island, you are going to find a lot of cool beaches to hang out. One that stands out is the Makana beach. It is one of its kind and highly recommended for its beauty. Otherwise known as the Big beach. It is on the south side of the island of Maui.

The extended stretch of this White sand beach becomes very happening with the waves. On top of that, if you are the kind of person who likes to party, there are a bunch of interesting local festivities that happen throughout the week.

Helicopter Ride

It goes without saying that Maui is out of this world, absolutely breath-taking. What if there was a way to see the most of it from an Arial view. Well, you can! The Helicopter and other glider rides allow you to see the mystic waterfalls and magnificent valleys having a panoramic view from the helicopter.

The other things to look for are Islands, tropical forest, shoreline seas cliffs, iconic puffy clouds, and oceanic horizon, plus you get to feel the cool breeze of Hawaii. Everything about this venture is fun and I dare you to describe it in words if you visit.

Pa’ia Town

What’s a vacation if you don’t get to shop a little and try different local foods! The town is one of those places where you can find a lot of interesting things to do apart from the beach activities that you’ve been doing all day. There are a lot of different restaurants here that you can try (definitely try out the Mama’s Fish House) and hang out with your family and friends observing the local life.

Tip: Try out the ice shakes here, they’re amazing. The street art and the plantation are other cool spots that you can visit to discover a little bit more about the town.

Front Street

The extended street is the place where you can find a little life in the town. if you have been to the beach all day and want to try something new this place is it. It as close a bar vibe that you will get visiting this place.

It is also amazing for shopping, trying out different restaurants, mingling or simply observing the local crowd, and exploring cool streets. Palm trees and all that beachy luxurious vibe.

Gazebo Restaurant

One of the other important things to consider when you visit a place is the restaurants and the food that you’re going to try. Gazebo restaurant is one of the best restaurant s on the island so much so as there is a huge line to dine in the place. If you manage to dine here, you’ll be stunned by the ambiance, quality of food, perfect view to the sea.

The best time to visit is during lunchtime when you get to avoid the relatively larger line to dine in the restaurant.

Haleakalā National Park

Haleakalā National Park is one of the best things to do in Maui

Haleakalā national park is one of the most beautiful sites to see on your visit to Maui. This heaven of a place is filled with breath-taking tropical Scenery. You could walk along the trails and experience the charming natural scenery.

The Seven sacred pools, beautiful bridges, and trails are alluring spots of this place. Another most interesting thing about the park is the Sunrise and Sunset of this place are the best compared to anywhere in the world with clouds turning to a vibrant array of colors with the sun on the horizon.

Tip: Make sure to book in advance.

Ho’okipa Beach

Maui offers a lot of calming spots to soothe your soul but this next destination is for the true explorer in you that is just longing for adventures that this tropical heaven has to offer. The waves here are amazing and perfect for windsurfing, kiteboarding, and other interesting things to do.

If you’re lucky you will find some sea turtles napping along the beachside undisturbed. if you think you’ve had a lot of quiet for your weekend and want to head someplace interesting. This is the place for you.

Other honorable mentions that could make your list are the cliff house for cliff jumping, the Kaanapali beach to observe the local wildlife up-close, and the thermal blowhole.

When you are in a place like Maui the one regret the person can have is not being able to explore more about the place. So, do your research beforehand and enjoy this tropical heaven to the fullest on your vacation.
