Travel Destination: Maui, HI

Country: United States

Free Things to Do:

Mile Marker 14 incredible snorkeling, also behind Kannapali Shores free beach access has unbelievable snorkeling available. Also this location has a giant sea turtle that calls it home.


Low Cost Things to Do:

Snorkeling - Snorkel Bobs for about $20-$30 will get you all the gear you need for a full week of snorkeling fun.

Expensive But Worth It:

Roy's Restaurant in Lahaina. About $100 for 2, but well worth it. Steak so tender it just about falls apart, and you have to check out their chocolate souffle, prepared to order and served warm with a scoop of ice cream. Definately heavenly. Staff is excellent and tends to every need. Linens and fine china. Awesome experience.


Nature - sunsets, waves crashing on the beach, no need to go any further

Seasonal Information:

Muggy humid, with afternoon showers in May ... but has rewards right around every corner as you slip into the calm ocean for a dip.

Inexpensive Lodging:

Noelani Condos - about $100 per night, includes a kitchen and laundry area, pools, and 20 feet from the ocean

Interesting Facts or History:

Learn about the native Hawaiian culture.

Additional Comments:

Take and book a trip to Hana with a driver, you won't be disappointed. 50+ hairpin turns and one lane bridges, scenery that you just can't find anywhere else.

When taking pictures of the sunset on Kamaole Beach III, I seem to have captured the green flash we so often look for! Beautiful.

What is the green flash we are always looking for? I see the green dot to the right of the sun, but why are we looking for that?

Love the mental pic you provide in describing the scene. I've always loved silhouettes. Sigh.

While taking a drive and looking at the beautiful scenery in Maui, we stopped at a beach and saw a Mynah Bird sitting in a tree. What a chance for a photo op.

My family and I all went to Maui for a big birthday for my Mom. My husband and I were lucky enough to get a little time to go do a few things without the kids, and snorkeling was one of those things.

On my recent vacation in Maui, we were watching the sunset and I saw this beautiful ray of sunlight coming through the clouds with a ship entering into the light. Had to take a picture.

This was a great warm day in Maui, while checking out the different beaches on the west side of the island. I would definitely go back for more! The water was fantastic compared to our year round cold.
