Here are a few of our favorite things to do in Maui.

Snorkel at Ulua Beach

Ulua Beach is one of the most popular Snorkeling and Scuba Diving beaches on the south side of Maui, in Kihei-Wailea-Makena.

There are Turtles everywhere along the coastline, so you have a great chance of seeing the Hawaiian Sea Turtles.

Hike the Kapalu Coast Trail

You’ve seen Moana. These mountains must be the inspiration for the Disney favorite. This 2.5-mile out-and-back trail near Lahaina, Maui is well worth packing everyone up for. Generally considered an easy route, it takes about an hour of steady hiking start-to-finish.

Surf Like a Local

Book a family-friendly group surf lesson at Kalama Beach or sign on with the locals at Zach Howard to get away from the crowd. Click here to learn more and book a lesson.

Maui Ocean Center

The Maui Ocean Center is a world-class aquarium featuring exhibits on Hawaiian marine life that are both educational and fun for kids. A great place to spend a rainy day or fill some time before a late day flight. To learn more, plan a visit, and purchase tickets, check out their website here.

Try Whale Watching on an Outrigger

Let the masses line up for a motorized whale watching tour while your family gets up close and personal with the majestic humpback whales while paddling an outrigger canoe right from shore. Learn more and book your tour here.

Let the Spirit of Aloha move at a Luau

Indulge in a traditional Hawaiian luau, complete with fire knife dancing, hula dancing, and a feast of local cuisine that will surely delight both kids and adults alike. While there are loads of options, the Feast at Mokapu will not disappoint – plus, its walking distance from the condo. Click here to learn more and purchase tickets.

Visit the Surfing Goat Dairy

Yep, you heard us right. Take a day-trip to Kula and stop at the Surfing Goat Dairy – kids will love hanging with the goats and even get a try at milking. Bonus, the cheese is amazing at night with your wine during sunset!

Exploring with the Kids

Drive the scenic Road to Hana and stop at kid-friendly spots like the Twin Falls, Ho’okipa Beach, and the Garden of Eden Arboretum.

Maui Brewing Company

Visit the Maui Brewing Company for a family-friendly brewery tour and tasting of locally crafted beers & root beers. Visit their website here.

Kid-Friendly Beaches

While you can’t beat the convenience of Keawakapu (it lines the shore of Wailea Ekahi), a day trip to kid-friendly beaches like Baby Beach (in Lahaina), Kamaole (in S. Kihei) or Sugar Beach (in N. Kihei), to build sandcastles, play in the waves, and soak up the sun is a must-do for the adventurous family.
