Plan a Vacation to Maui with Moon Travel Guides

Unique trip ideas and how-tos for all the things to do in Maui.

Discover Maui

For a 727-square mile island, there’s no shortage of things to do in Maui. Sure, the most popular daydream about Maui involves a sandy beach, a lounge chair and a mai tai, and while we agree that’s a pretty good way to spend an afternoon, there are a lot more traveler favorites that don’t make to the big-screen picture.

Imagine a hike through a dense bamboo forest to the refreshing dip in the cool waters as falls cascade around you. An easy morning snorkeling surrounded by underwater life, an afternoon of adrenaline-fuelled surfing, an evening with the water aflame from the calmest of sunsets. Stroll the streets of Old Makawao Town, browse the boutiques yourself or kick back against a hitching post and people-watch as art-enthusiasts and passionate fashionistas find their treasures. Picture a sweeping overview of the island from a helicopter, spotting all the places you’ve been and the ones you’ve yet to go.

Better make a list. You’ll be back.
