Drive around West Maui
  • Drive around West Maui
  • While much of West Maui is occupied by oceanfront resorts, manicured beach parks, and simple sandy coves, West Maui's rugged exterior comes alive once the resorts and large highway give way to a single winding lane.

Drive the Back Road to Hana
  • Drive the Back Road to Hana
  • For people who love to explore the world from the road, the back route to Hana is a rewarding journey through the most desolate part of Maui. There are no stores, very few houses, and only the occasional passing truck or cattle guard to remind you of people.

  • Golfing
  • Golfing in Maui is all about the view. Vast expanses of green look out over a glistening sea of blue. Dramatic cliff drops and white sand frame the neighboring islands of Lanai and Molokai, like oil paintings hanging in the distance.

  • Hiking
  • From the dry cold summit of Haleakala, to the desert of Kihei, to the steamy wet rainforests of Hana, Maui's 730 square miles houses 11 of the world's 13 climate zones. This extraordinary fact means there is literally an environment here for every outdoor enthusiast.

  • Horseback Riding

  • Lu'aus
  • There are certain things you can expect at any Hawaiian Lu'au: All-you-can-eat grinds, all-you-can-drink tropical cocktails, a lei greeting, dancing, singing, and steep prices.

  • Parasailing
  • Dangling from a parachute high above the water off Lahaina provides some of the best views of the islands that make up Maui County. The steep valleys of the deeply eroded West Maui Mountains pop in and out of view to the east as clouds form and recede along the sharp peaks.

Whale Watching
  • Whale Watching
  • Like dark submarines traversing the ocean depths, more than 10,000 humpback whales migrate to the Hawaiian Islands every year, filling the waters with sub aquatic shapes and sounds.

  • Ziplining
  • If trekking across long, swinging bridges and dangling from a harness high above the forest floor sounds like a great way to spend a day, try ziplining.
