THINGS TO DO IN MAUI
Maui is a dream for the active traveler. It’s been consistently chosen as the best island in the world. There are so many things to do that you’ll never be able to do them all in just one visit. Here, however, are some of our picks for the best things to do in Maui.
MAUI BEST BEACHES:
– Hookipa Beach Park (NorthShore)
– Baldwind Beach (NorthShore)
– Baby Beach (NorthShore)
– Makena beach (Wailea)
– Secret Beach (Wailea)
– Hamoa Beach and Red sand beach (Hana)
MAUI BEST WINDSURFING
– Hookipa Beach (advance level)
– Mamas or Kuau (advance level and no crowd )
– Outside Reef of Speacksville (advance level and no crowd – access from baby beach)
– Kanaha Beach (all levels)
– Spreacksville Beach (all levels – this beach is located on stable road, the 2nd right, follow the dirt road until the beach)
Being an island, it’s little surprise that some of the best thing to do on Maui take place on or under the ocean.
As wonderful as Maui’s beaches are, no trip to Maui is complete without experiencing all the the sea has to offer.
- Surf Lessons and Stand up Paddle lessons
- kitesurfing lessons
- windsurfing lessons
- Snorkeling and Scuba Diving
WATER SPORT RENTALS:
MAUI OCEAN ACTIVITIES:
- Private Boat Trips to Lanai and Molokini with chef (up to 6 guests) email us
- Regular Boat Tour
Sheltered by Lana‘i and Moloka‘i, the breezy offshore waters of Maui are ideal for sailing. Try a Boat Trip Tour or a Private boat trip. The nearby award-winning Lana‘i Cathedrals at Lana‘i is considered to be one of the most beautiful dive sites in the world, and there is also the famous Molokini volcanic crater.
Lanai Maui Dolphin Watch & Snorkel – (boat trips or private boat)
Maui Molokini & Turtle Towne Snorkeling Tours
Whale-Watching. Every year between December and March, humpback whales congregate in the warm waters near Maui to mate and birth their young. There are so many whales over such a small area that one researcher has termed it ‘whale nirvana.’ Dozens of whale-watch companies run 2-hour inflatable-boat trips out of Lahaina and Maalaea harbors.
WOLRD BIGGEST WAVE
Watch the Biggest Waves in the World. Peahi Only when the North Swell is big and there is a High Wave warning for Maui Northshore between november and march. Jaws is roughly three miles east of PAIA from the hana hwy . A mostly unpaved road leads north from the highway between mile marker 13 and 14. The lookouts on the cliffs above the break are the best vantage points for spectators; professional photographers use boats or helicopters. There have been several “World Cup of Tow-in Surfing” contests held, but the changing conditions mean the dates cannot be set in advance.
If you plan to visit Hana, calculate at least the full day trip. Hana is the most popular drive on Maui, and in all of Hawaii, is the Road to Hana with 54 bridges in 56 miles along a winding lava shore, through old plantation towns, past miles of beaches and through towering forests. There are many Waterfalls next to the road, nice to stop and have a swim, specially if you are feeling car sick.
Some of the places we advice to visit on your Hana Day are:
Waianapanapa State Park visitors come to this state park for its black sand beaches and hiking trails. If you follow the trails you will see some nice fresh water caves, great for swimming. When the waves are small, the ocean is very nice for snorkeling .
- SEVEN POOLS : While still part of Haleakala National Park, Ohe’o Gulch is accessed via the Hana Highway (about a half hour drive past Hana town). There are at least 7 pools with water flowing into and out of each one. The pools can be closed to swimming for either excessive water flow or stagnant water depending on the rainfall in the forest. Rains in the mountains above can cause a flash flood in the pools.
The Pipiwai Trail begins from the park entrance at Ohe`o Gulch and is a 1.8 mile hike from there to Waimoku Falls. The hike can be slippery, and muddy in parts, but it is well worth the 800′ climb. Several waterfalls can be seen along the trail, and the bamboo forest is a site to behold all on it’s own.
– visit Hana Town and eat in the local style Hana Thai Restaurant.
– Red Sand Beach in Hana Town.
Parking is at the corner of Uakea and Hauoli Roads. The trail head begins at the Hotel Hana-Maui’s Sea Ranch Cottages. Short ten-minute walk to red cinder sand in a secluded cove.
– Hamoa Beach is also very nice to visit.

You know the saying when people like something they will tell 1 person, when they don't they will tell 20? Well, seeing some of the negative reviews here motivated me to voice by positive experience with Kimo's.
He is arranging, he has a wide variety of cars for any budget, if you are wanting to pay less then the big car rentals but won't some quality he offers a whole line of premium cars. If you on a budget and want to live the true Maui experience without looking like you freshly landed from the airport Kimo's is the place to go. Not only you'll support a local business, you'll can look like a local if you rent one of the many pick up he offers! Can only recommend!Agustin Filippo

We had a great time in Maui (vacations, August 2014, and prior to that August 2013), and among other things we had the pleasure of dealing with the people at Kimo's rent a car. This should be the option for people looking for a car rental with a family and friends managed company. Don't hesitate to check their website for useful tips of what to do in Maui! See you next time, hopefully August 2015.Lisa Reeber

Inexpensive, local looking cars. Nothing fancy, but they have been responsive when I have had problems with a car. Convenient airport pick up and drop off.Katie Titosky

At first we were detoured by previous reviews we had read online, but we decided to go with it anyways due to the low fees. When we first arrived at the rental lot it was not what we expected as it was very run down. In the end we were able to rent the cheapest car available ( white PT cruiser) for 12 days for only $250. This was an unreal deal considering how much the national brands cost, especially when renting a car under the age of 25. We were able to travel all over the island in our Maui cruiser. We strongly recommend going with Kimo's, however we suggest spending a little more to get a newer vehicle model.
