Planning a Summer Vacation of a Lifetime to Sunny Maui


Planning your summer vacation to Maui is an exciting time as you anticipate your arrival to the island. Preparing in advance is a great way to ensure that your vacation goes as smoothly as possible and that you’ll have time to fit in all the activities you would like to experience.

Prior to travel, consider the purpose of your trip to Maui. For instance, if your goal is to relax, the activities you want to do will be very different from those individuals seeking a vacation full of adventure. Will you be traveling with children? Consider age appropriate activities, as certain activities won't accommodate the little ones. Once you know what kind of vacation you want, it is time to research activities. There are plenty of things to see and do in Maui and the following activities are just a few available to you. (Want more ideas? Check out our free 'Top 10 Things To Do in Maui Guide.')

From hot stone and signature massages to Hawaiian "Lomi-Lomi" facials and more, there is no shortage of options. A variety of body treatments are also available, including a luxurious, warm black lava body scrub. You will leave feeling recharged and pampered.


Go Ziplining


Get your adrenaline pumping at Maui Zipline Company, located on a scenic tropical plantation. This family-friendly zip line course is suitable for kids as young as 5 and features five zip lines, ranging in height from 300 to 900 feet. The thrill of soaring above the beautiful plantation and feeling the wind on your face is sure to be one of the highlights of your trip.


Explore Haleakala National Park


Haleakala National Park, located in South Maui, is where you will find the largest dormant volcano in the world. Not only are you able to venture to the top of the crater, you can also hike down inside and admire the spectacular, desert-like landscapes. There is also a popular sea level trail at the park, Pipiwai, that is definitely worth checking out. This four mile trail along the southeast coast will take you to Waimoku Falls. At 400 feet, it’s the tallest waterfall on Maui.


Spend the Day at Napili Beach


Napili Beach, situated on Maui's northwest coast, is known for having calmer waves than others in the area. This beach is ideal for families because of the activities it offers, including swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding, paddle boarding, or simply laying on the beach and soaking up the rays.


Take a Maui Helicopter Tour


Maverick Helicopters offers a helicopter tour of Maui in its entirety called Maui Dream. Just over an hour in duration, this air tour affords spectacular views of the island's lush rainforest, cascading waterfalls, jagged cliffs and beautiful blue ocean water from a perspective not many get to see.
