Save Place
Hana Hwy, Hawaii, USA

Get your motor running and head out on the Hana Highway, connecting Kahului with Hana in eastern Maui. This 83-kilometer (52-mile) scenic stretch actually takes about 2.5 hours to drive, thanks to 62 twists in the road as it winds through rain...

Save Place
675 Wharf St, Lahaina, HI 96761, USA

Alaska might be the place to observe humpbacks in summer, but from December to May their favorite spots remain the shallow waters off Lahaina along with other parts of West Maui and South Maui. Once this former whaling port hunted the...

Save Place
Hawaii, USA
Witnessing the sunrise from the summit of this otherworldly national park is on many a bucket list--and for good reason. At just over 10,000 feet, the volcanic Haleakalā resembles Mars. There are species of plants, including the spindly...
Save Place
Haleakalā, Hawaii 96790, USA

What goes up must come down. And on the volcano Haleakala, that means cycling from summit to sea level. It can be challenging for novice riders; you're on the same road as the cars winding their way up to take in the view. Go self-guided if you're...

Save Place
671 Front St, Lahaina, HI 96761, USA

Cool off with a shave ice in the Lahaina Banyan Court Park under the shady branches of this iconic tree. Hawaii's oldest non-native arboreal giant, it arrived from India in 1873. Maui sheriff William Owen Smith planted it to commemorate the 50th...

Save Place
Take your snorkeling up a notch with a visit to a partially submerged volcanic crater. Boats leave daily from Makena Beach and Lahaina Harbor for the ancient atoll of Molokini, 2.5 miles off the south coast of Maui. Excursions take you straight to...
Save Place
Paia, HI 96779, USA
The final stop before the Hana Highway, Pā'ia was once a plantation town; today it’s a boho enclave full of galleries, independent boutiques, lazy cafés, and a Tibetan Buddhist stupa (place of meditation). Stock up on fuel for...
Save Place
Poelua Bay HI 96793, Wailuku, HI 96793, USA

In Hawaiian, Nakalele means "the leaning," but you'd better not do too much of that here. This landmass on Maui's northern tip is known for its spectacular seawater blowhole, which creates a mean undertow when it empties. Nevertheless,...

Save Place
810 Olowalu Village Rd, Lahaina, HI 96761, USA

If you snorkel only once while you're here, make it at Olowalu, home to Maui's most diverse marine populations. Slap on reef-friendly sunscreen and join all sorts of wonders along 40 hectares (99 acres) of some of Hawaii's healthiest coral...

Save Place
Haleiwa, HI 96712, USA
One of surfing's most famous sites, the North Shore churns out giant walls of water for world-class riders each winter. When the wave faces loom to around 30 to 40 feet at Waimea Bay, the Super Bowl of surfing kicks off. The Quiksilver in Memory...
