Maui


This summer I spent three full days on Maui, exploring the island as much as possible. I think I saw a good amount while there, but I must say Maui is probably my least favorite of the four major islands. I like the slow pace of Big Island life better, the dramatic scenery of Kauai better, and the nightlife and hidden beaches of Oahu better. I would however eagerly return to Maui because I desperately want to visit Lanai and Molokai.

Day Trip I: Road to Hana

This was my favorite day trip on Maui, although the Road to Hana made me sick enough that I swore I’d never do it again. We visited a beautiful red sands beach and took an amazing two-mile hike with plenty to see along the way.

If you carefully make your way along the path to this red sand beach, the view and seclusion are worth it!

Day Trip II: Mt. Haleakalā

On the second day in Maui my father and I drove to the summit of Mt. Haleakalā. Unfortunately, we picked a cloudy day to do this and never got an entirely clear view of the crater. Nevertheless, you could tell it would be amazing on a clear day.

We warmed up in the Visitor Center and gift shop for about a half hour, while thick clouds filled the crater. Just as we were leaving, the clouds thinned enough to get a partial view of what normally makes for beautiful photographs.

Day Trip III: Nakalele Blowhole

Our third day trip was on the western side of the island, where we visited Lahaina, the Nakalele Blowhole and took in a magic show by Warren & Annabelle.

Upon arrival at the Nakalele Blowhole, we were standing about fifteen feet above the base. It put on this little show for us and combined with the ocean breezes, gave us a pretty good splash.
