This island is truly a vibrant paradise. This island is like none I’ve ever seen and experienced before. I went in June and it was so remote and there were not a lot of people there during that time. I felt like everywhere I went it was like a private island vibe. Everywhere I ate was literally ocean front view. The island is so small everywhere you go you have the ocean in your view. It is truly a paradise with a chill vibe.
Mahalo= thank you
These are my two favorite words I learned and of course you always have to throw the Shaka sign/hang loose to people as a form of waving.
We stayed at Kahana Falls Resort in Lahaina, Hawaii. I got the trip on https://www.expedia.com and it was $1000 for flight and hotel. The flight was Delta. We were right across the street from Kahana Beach. It was so secluded and a little paradise. We went to this beach for a day because we had to explore different beaches.
We walked the town of Lahaina each night and it has food and shopping places. We went to Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave ice. It is the best shaved ice on the island.
The next day we went to Makena Beach. The waves there were LARGE. If you want to get in the water I would avoid this beach. It’s giant waves that crash and they request you not get in to swim. It was a remote and secluded area but we did drive an hour across the island to get to this beach. It was nice getting to see the other side of the island.
Snorkeling the Molokini Crater was by far my favorite excursion and sight in Maui. We took a tour and rode a boat out to the crater. They provided lunch for us while we were there. We snorkeled the crater and got to see fish and enjoy the view of Maui off in the distance. I would recommend renting a wet suit because the water was still a little chilly. We left from the Maalaea harbor on the boat Four Winds II that we booked through Trip Advisor. The harbor wasn’t too far of an Uber from our resort.
We went to Black Rock Beach/Kaanapali Beach (either name) and it was amazing. We went through the Sheraton Maui Resort and Spa and it is definitely a must to walk through. The views from the resort are stunning.
Luau! Luau! My first time in Hawaii I had to do a luau. We did the Drums of the Pacific Luau at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa. The Luau was outdoors and it was right on the ocean. They fed us food and they did a series of Hawaiian Luau dances. They used fire and they had amazing hula dancing. It was a neat 2 hour experience that is a must when visiting Maui. We paid $120 for the Luau but that included food, alcohol, and the performance all with a view of the ocean.

This island had some amazing sunsets and rainbows each day. If I didn’t see a rainbow I saw a breathtaking sunset. Here are a few that took my breath away.
