    Did this drive over two days spending the night in Hana. Highly recommend if that works for you. That allowed us to leave later in the morning and leisurely enjoy the sights knowing we had the next day to do the pipiwai trail and enjoy a relaxing night in Hana. Totally different vibe than the rest of the highway. Left paia about 11:30. We found parking on the roads and very little traffic. After driving the west Maui over the top road the road to Hana was so much easier. Yes the roads are winding and blind curves and one way bridges but the road to Hana is not paved. The back end is a different story. We were told it was closed which was not true. We had 4WD and were glad we did. Higher clearance better traction on unpacked and narrow roads. We made reservations for the black sand beach and it was lovely. We hiked about a mile into the hike. Saw waterfalls and beautiful coastline vistas. The next day we hiked the Pipiwai Trail. Took us 3 hours but a great hike. Spent the night in Hana Maui Resort. Was very relaxing. Took turns driving so we could both enjoy the road. Was fortunate not to have any bad experience with the locals being unkind.
    The road to Hana is not about Hana. That is not the destination the exciting part is the journey.

    Beautiful beach for watching sunset. There is a beach walk going along the hotels. Lovely walk. We just sat on the beach and watched sunset. Also the party boats dock and let people off from their sunset cruise

    Such a treat, once at the spot had to climb down then back up but definitely worth it. Closed toe shoes are a must. The area surrounding the blowhole was amazing.
    Easy to become mesmerized just watching the water shoot up, down then up again. The water shot up several feet high. It's a must do while in Maui 🙂.

    I first visited this beach 24 years ago and to my surprise it was just as perfect as I remembered it. The sand is fluffy and beautiful orange color. The water is warm and clear and a great place to swim. It is a state beach so you have to pay for parking but it is completly worth it. We got to watch locals skimboard and body surf. It is safe four tourists and the locals were welcoming.

    We have stayed across from this beach 4 times. Large sandy expanse with great boogie board waves, showers, snorkeling and a life guard station.

    We went as a party of 14 and had an amazing dinner. The ordering system is all on your phone using at codes which sucks until you get the hang of it. Food and beer were both good and the taco’s came out gluten free and celiac friendly, just ensure you ‘add notes’ and let one of the red short servers know. The kids were able to go to the lower area and play corn hole and giant connect 4 after dinner while we enjoyed the beer. Great place.

    We spend a few days in Maui and visited multiple beaches, this was one of our favorites... perfect for snorkeling, clean and easy to access, the beach is also next to a resort so you can have access to food and drinks easier than in other beaches..

    All you could ask for in one place! You know your getting the best price and there are choices galore. Everything from veggies, to jewelry, soaps, and T-shirt’s with prices reasonable and at every price point. The empanada is just ok….it used to be much better so be prepared if you’ve ordered them in the past. The best is the shaved ice. OMG….. delicious and so reasonably priced”…. Definitely a must have. So if you don’t want to spend your vacation shopping, simply spend a few hours at the swap meet and get it done in a morning.

    Well used trail from Ritz Carlton hotel about 1.75 miles in length, ending at the beach, There is a side spur leading down to the Dragon's Teeth park where wind/sea erosion has shaped volcanic rock to look like a row of teeth sticking up.

    Exhilarating experience sunrise on the mountain. Left Wailea at 2:45 am to get there an hour before sunrise. Pitch dark up the roads. Winding switchback roads. Make sure you have a full tank of gas. We parked at the lower visitor center and walked the white hill trail to see sunrise above the clouds but you get a smashing view of the crater from there. Dress warm. Like base layers winter coat hat and gloves. It is colllddd. Watched the sun peek through the clouds and slowly rise. Then drove up the upper visitor center to see the view from there. Walked red hill path to get view of the observatories. Started down the mountain and did several of the lookouts and hosmer grove nature trail. Note. The outhouse on hosmer grove was one of the grossest we saw.

    The second day we were in Maui it was extremely windy so an indoor activity seemed like the logical thing to do. So we decided to go check out the aquarium and Ocean center.

    Tickets are roughly $50 a person, at first it seems a little overpriced, until you actually start walking through the aquarium displays and see how beautifully laid out it is and the variety of aquatic Life and educational activities involved in your tour.

    The highlight of the tour was the humpback whale experience. You sit in a domed theater where the seats lay back and you literally look up while you wear 3D glasses. This is definitely a must be if you make a visit to Maui or you are looking for something to fill in your spare time. The 3D experience was a couple years in the making, and they did a very good job of presenting the video display, it almost seemed like you could just reach out and touch them! Very well done! My 15-year-old son even enjoyed it.

    They have a gift shop, everything is moderately priced, we did buy a couple things to support the ocean center.

    We arrived right at 8am. Ample parking at that time. We always love the walk to the bay. We entered at the ramp, we snorkeled out and to the right side. It was clear from the time we entered although we have had it be the complete opposite also. As we were heading back into shore the first tour boat arrived.

    We spend the late afternoon hiking, learning about the ecosystem and stayed to watch a spectacular sunset.

    I had never seen a banyan tree before and this was amazing! It's a whole block, a park that you can walk through and gaze up at this massive tree! There are signs everywhere that say "no climbing, no swinging" because who wouldn't want to? Cool shade and benches all over.

    When you're far away, wishing you can go to a place that is soothing; relaxing and close to everything. This is your spot. Wish it was longer. Beautiful Bay!
