Honolua Bay Marine Life Conservation District has amazing reef for snorkeling.
Check the weather conditions before going out as the waves can get pretty big here, primarily in the winter months.
Costco is the best place to buy gear at the best cost for both adults and keiki (children).
If you’d rather rent, check any of the local dive shops or Snorkel Bob’s, located conveniently around the island, or ask manaloha rent a car team.
The next time you find yourself on the Valley Isle, make sure to stop by Maui’s best hidden food gems as well as the famous local hot spots.
For true, authentic Mexican food in Central Maui, try Acevedo’s Hawaicano Cafe in Kahului.
They are only open from 11-3, Monday thru Friday, and often run out of the Carne Asada or amazing shrimp tacos.
Definitely a must try on Maui!
And while you are on the North Shore, be sure to stop by The Greek Oven Maui in Haiku for organic, locally sourced breakfast and lunch. And finally, no trip to the North Shore of Maui would be complete without fresh fish tacos and cold beer at The Paia Fish Market.
While on the South Shore of Maui, you’ll also find The Paia Fish Market, known for their fresh catch of the day in tacos, pastas, salads, you name it. If sushi is your thing, then Sansei in Kihei is a must. Maui is keeping up with the food truck trend all over the island. Be sure to grab anything from fish tacos to shave ice at Jawz. Food truck after a day of boogie boarding at Big Beach. Another great food truck to try, Horhitos on S. Kihei Rd makes the best Mahi-Mahi tacos. If chilling on the patio, listening to live music is your thing, then Nalu’s North Shore Grill is the place for you. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a great beer selection, Maui kombucha and nightly live music, it’s the perfect way to spend a Maui evening with friends.
On the road to Hana , you can visit this nice black sand beach.

Puamana Beach Park
Beginning 1,600 feet upslope from Maui’s beaches, a unique province emerges. This is Maui’s UPCOUNTRY, a scattering of picturesque communities blessed by fresh mountain air, cool afternoon mists, sprawling ranch land and delightful boutique farms.
Upcountry is a short drive from the coastal resorts and communities of lower Maui. Take Haleakala Highway (Highway 37) and keep an eye peeled for towns like PUKALANI, MAKAWAO, KULA, KEOKEA, HALI‘IMAILE and ‘ULUPALAKUA.
In the past, Makawao was a bustling paniolo town where ranch hands would come to pick up dry goods or a bite to eat before heading home after a long day branding cattle or working at the dairy. Today, whispers of the town’s paniolo past are still evident—hitching posts appear along Baldwin Avenue, and the annual 4th of July parade and rodeo draw crowds from across the state. Eclectic boutiques filled with LOCAL ART, HANDCRAFTED JEWELRY, DESIGNER CLOTHING and more line the streets.
In the rural areas, boutique farmers are making an appearance. Small farmers with lots of imagination are experimenting with both new and traditional crops, gradually transforming the landscape from a blanket of rolling green cane to a colorful patchwork of small, innovative farms, some of them open for tours.
Up the mountain on ‘Ulupalakua Ranch, TEDESCHI WINERY grows grapes for its red, white and sparkling pineapple and grape wines.
You must GO!!
Hana, it’s a isolated from the rest of the island, is truly the last undeveloped tropical paradise here in Maui.Spectacular waterfalls, the rugged Hana shoreline, and some of the best beaches on the island can only begin to describe what awaits you on this journey.
The 52 mile trip from Kahului will take about 3 hours drive. (with no stops!)
Explore the various parks and lookouts as you drive through Maui’s only coastal rain forest accessible by car.
The small town atmosphere, Hawaiian culture and most of all, its natural scenic beauty.
It’s something that if you are in Maui you must see!
Drive safety and don’t forget to do some Gas in your car , there is only one Gas station in Hana.
Have a nice trip!
