As some of you may have discovered from watching our San Francisco video (check it out here!), my family and I spent Christmas holiday in Maui. I’d visited Oahu in the past and heard great things about Maui, so I was quite stoked to get some much needed rest and vitamin D. I have split my Maui travel series into 4 separate posts; the first one of course is the video attached above. The second post will go more in detail about Road to Hana, South Maui beaches, and Upcountry Maui. The third post will highlight Kapalua and Honolua. My fourth and final travel post will note the must-see food places everyone should try while on the island. Stay tuned as I will try to have a Maui post up every other week!
Day 1 was spent mostly settling into our hotel and exploring our surroundings, which includes Lahaina, the “downtown” of Maui.
Day 2 features the greater Kapalua area, specifically the Kapalua Coastal Trail.
Day 3 was spent beach-hopping alongside Southwest Maui, some which include Big Beach and Ulua Beach. We then drove for a hour to upcountry Maui, where we visited the lavender farms. To make the 6 pm sunset, we spent another 1.5 hours driving up Haleakala.
Day 4 is all about Road to Hana. We left at 6 am in the morning to make multiple stops along the trail. My favorites are Keanae Arboretum (where we saw rainbow eucalyptus trees!), Waianapanapa State Park (black sand beach), and Koki Beach.
Day 5 we spent in Honolua exploring Honolua Bay and the Village Walking Trails.
Day 6, which is our last day, was spent by the beach and pool.
