An island adored for its sensational beaches, lush rainforests, impressive volcanoes and traditional Hawaiian culture, Maui is the second largest island in the Hawaii archipelago. Let yourself be warmly welcomed to an oasis of nature on a Maui holiday. 

Take a helicopter tour and get a bird’s eye view of the island fondly known as the Valley Isle, or hike up mountains and through rainforests. If you like a challenging hike, head to the Haleakala summit on the Sliding Sands trail and drink in the majesty of this impressive land. Back at sea level, you can take your pick of beaches; every beautiful mile of the red, white and black sand beaches is as breathtaking as the last. Swim or learn to surf on the gentle waves of Kihei, and kayak and snorkel at Turtle Town. 

Maui’s Road to Hana 

The journey along the Hana Highway is a must on a holiday to Maui. The 64 miles of highway is meant to be travelled slow, so meander along at your own leisurely pace, passing through lush rainforests, stunning waterfalls and sea views as you go. When you reach the serene town of Hana, you’ll find the journey was more than worthwhile. Thought to be the last remaining untouched Hawaiian frontier, this is the place to discover traditional Hawaii. Rest up from the journey at Travaasa Hana, a luxurious retreat, before exploring the Hana Beach Park and the Hana Cultural Centre

With a whole archipelago of lush tropical islands on your doorstep, a Maui holiday is the perfect start to a Hawaiian island hopping adventure. Explore the contrasts of the islands, from seren Maui beaches to the buzz of Waikiki on Oahu, or head somewhere entirely different and explore the infamous Strip in Las Vegas or shop your days away in Los Angeles

Destination Highlights

  • Watch as the sun rises from Haleakala Volcano
  • Witness migrating whales from November until May
  • Enjoy the journey on the Road to Hana
  • See Seven Sacred Pools at Ohe'o: waterfalls and pools set in a valley cut by a rainforest stream

Discover hidden beach coves off-the-beaten-path or soak up the sun's rays on the world famous shores of Kaanapali Beach. Snorkel, dive or swim in the oceans surrounding the 120 mile Maui coastline or try your hand at many water based activities such as windsurfing and paddleboarding. Head to the skies in a helicopter and land in a remote part of the rainforest or take a boat trip to look for whales, dolphins and other wildlife. And of course a visit to Maui would not be complete without a trip up to Haleakala; with so many things to do, what will you choose.

Green Sea Turtle

Underneath the sea

Snorkel or scuba dive among the colourful coral reefs, where you can watch the green sea turtles grazing on the sea grass while the yellow butterfly fish dart between the rocks. Maui is most popular for whale watching and between late November through early May you will see water spouts across the horizon from the humpback whales that migrate to these warmer waters to breed and nurse their calves.

Road to Hana

Road to Hana

The Hana Highway has 620 curves and 59 bridges where you can enjoy flowing waterfalls, lush rainforests and dramatic sea cliffs. Get up early to start your drive and wind your way along the rugged eastern coastline, taking your time to stop off and enjoy the lovely views.

Haleakala

Visiting this national park, also know as 'the house of the sun' is a must visit on anyone's trip to Maui and is breathtaking no matter what time of day you choose. Whether you decide to wake up in the early hours to witness the first glimpse of light on the day as the sun rises from beneath the clouds or await the sun to descend to the horizon at sunset and reveal the bright, starry sky.

Helicopter tours

Some of the best views around Maui and the neighbouring islands can be seen from above on a helicopter tour. Witness towering sea cliffs and dense rainforests, hidden beach coves and cascading waterfalls all from a unique vantage point.

Whale watching tour

Whale watching

Whales from Alaska come to Hawaii to enjoy the warm waters to breed, birth and raise their young in safety. Each winter from December through May, thousands of humpback whales can be seen in the waters surrounding Maui as they are drawn to the shallow waters and the Auau Channel between Maui, Molokai and Lanai. Take a boat trip and enjoy scenic ocean views as your expert guide takes you to the best spots for seeing the spouts of water shoot up into the air from the whales blowhole or swimming playfully and tail slapping the surface. If you don't have the sea legs, there are also plenty of areas where humpbacks can be frequently seen from land during whale season - McGregor Point Lookout and the beaches of Kaanapali, Kihei and Wailea to name a few.

Steven, Destination Executive

"If you want to catch the sunrise at Haleakala, make sure you head up nice and early as it takes about two hours to drive to the summit from Kaanapali and Wailea. It’s also worth bringing warm clothes with you, as it’s pretty cold before the warmth of the sun breaks through and you are at 10,023 feet above sea level. The sun rise makes it all worth it though; it’s one of the most incredible things you can ever see."

Steven
Destination Executive
Charlie, Destination Manager

"The road to Hana can get quite busy, so make sure you set off early to give yourself plenty of time to stop off at waterfalls and lookout points on route throughout the day. Once you get to Hana, you can either continue around the island through the south side of Haleakala National Park or get a different perspective and drive back the way you came."

Charlie
Destination Manager

Kapalua Wine and Food Festival

Held each June at the wonderful Kapalua Resort, the Kapalua Wine and Food Festival brings together experts in food and wine. There’s seminars and wine tastings, as well as live cooking demonstrations and meals cooked by some of the country’s best chefs. 

Banana Bread

This cake is enjoyed all over the world but Maui has some of the best. You’ll find them being sold from fruit stands along many roads around the island, so they’re easy to find and well worth a try.
