Maui-bucket list: 44 Best activities on the coolest island of Hawaii
Maui has something to herself. With so many things to do on Hawaii's hottest place, you'll never be tired unless you want to. During my journey through the second biggest of all Hawaii' isles, many gates were ticked off from my bucket list - everything from funny activity and fresh rides to stunning scenery, delicious food and old-fashioned luau.
There are not many travellers all the way to Hawaii without participating in the quintessence of the city. Lele in Lahaina is one of the few Lauaus in Maui that is not a bar (that's why I picked this one and the scenery was not too shabby). As you think about which of the stations of the Road to Hana you will make, don't miss the one at the 32 miles, the Wai'anapanapa Black Sand Beach.
This was one of my favourite activities in Maui. No, you didn't sample any pins until you tried one right out of the outback. Cruise a Maui Gold Tours pinapple ranch to see the intriguing ripening and your guides will allow you to try the three different ripening stages of the pine apple so you can choose your favourite.
It is one of the best things in Maui to take the scenic 53 mile winding road to Hana. Featuring stunning falls, walking areas and beautiful sandy shores, this trip should definitely be on your docket. Have a look at my 17 stations on the way to Hana to see what you would miss if you didn't go.
Before I went to Maui, I had never even known of a yacht. In the Luana Resort Spas in Hana you can not only stay in a cosy yurte, but also enjoy a wide range of spas in one. The Maui is home to the surfing go-at dairy, which is situated in the lower Kula of Maui's Upcountry and has been making top quality goat's cheese for nine years.
Although the road to Hana is the most popular road in Maui, it is not the only place to take an unbelievable one. This exciting 27 mile long dowhill cycle tour offers a view of the Bicoas valley and craters as well as pits along the way. A must in Maui is to be in a fun surfing city - and Paia is a great one.
Its beachfront shops, breathtaking riverside promenades and crisp seafood restaurant make it the embodiment of a fun, serene city. It' also a great place to begin on the way to Hana. The Alli Kula Lavendel Farm is located in the highland area of Maui. Though Maui is not home to Maui and does not always bloom, a stroll through the garden during the summer is definitely worth a visit.
Ukulelele, i.e. bouncing fleas, is often associated with music of Hawaii. So what would be more ideal than to learn how to gamble on Maui? This is a festive dress, a lantern which is a sign of love and which is put around the throat on arrival in Hawaii.
Most of the time these Thai Token are made with delicious and exquisitely clean flower, although in most places on the island they have been substituted by the Kukui Tree Nut lei, which is much longer lasting. But with all the beautiful floral beauty you'll find in Maui, it's definitely a good idea to look for a new one.
A further attraction in Maui is a ride along Makena Road and through the Ahihihi-Kinau Natural Area Reserve to enjoy a refreshing view of the caves. You can take the Pipiwai Walk into the magnificent bamboo forest along Maui's Road to Hana. Climb up from children's snows and treat yourself to a delicious shaved ice spicedhawiian.
Taste one of the best in Ululani's Shave Ice Store, which has three stores across Maui. Everything from Bananenbrot over moothies to shrimps is available at the side of the road of Maui. Heading to Hana, stop at Halfway to Hana for some of their famed slices of pancake sandwiches.
Alternatively, drive to one of the most famous road-side stops: Geste Shrimp, a tasty Hwaiian Kahalui lunch lorry that would make a great pit stop on the way to the city. I love to drink different kinds of wines all over the globe and here you can do a trip as well as a free toasting.
Don't miss the pine-apple toast! Besides shaving rice, Spam Musubi is another of Hawaii's favourite delicacies. The Kaluas are boiled in an earthen stove, a typical Hwaiian cuisine. This is a good way to remove this spicy meats from the pail lists. Situated in a discrete shopping centre, you will find one of the most favourite toucos with the freshest seafood and the most delicious activities in Maui.
The Nahiku Marketplace is a small Hana mall, consisting of a small bunch of productshops. Here I found one of my favourite Maui dishes, the chocolate candies. Well, it was the $5 a pocket and a place on your pail manifest for you. During the trip on the isle you will see several unsupervised stalls with a small choice of apricots.
Think about getting a crisp apple for the journey. Who of these activities in Maui will you be adding to your mailing lists?
