Patricia Hart Hart
Hey there, how are you doing? Ready to plan your next adventure to the beautiful island of Maui? If so, you're in luck because I recently came back from Maui and have some amazing recommendations for you! So buckle up and let me take you on a journey to Maui's top 10 destinations! Are you planning a trip to Maui and looking for flights to get there? Maui is one of the most beautiful islands in Hawaii, with breathtaking views and plenty of outdoor activities to keep you busy. Whether you're looking for a relaxing vacation or an adventure-packed trip, Maui has something for everyone.
Flights to Maui:
Let's talk about the different ways you can find flights to Maui . One of the easiest ways is to simply search for flights on a travel booking website. There are several popular websites that offer flights to Maui, including Expedia, Kayak, and Travelocity. You can enter your travel dates and departure city, and the website will show you a list of available flights.
Another option is to check with specific airlines that offer flights to Maui. Hawaiian Airlines is a popular choice, as they offer daily flights from several cities on the mainland, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle. Alaska Airlines, Delta, and American Airlines also offer flights to Maui.
If you're looking to save money on your flight to Maui, you might want to consider booking your flight during the off-season. The off-season for Maui is typically from mid-April to mid-June and from September to mid-December. Flights during this time are usually less expensive than during peak travel season.
Once you arrive in Maui, there are plenty of things to do and see. You can spend your days lounging on the beach, snorkeling, hiking, or taking a scenic drive along the famous Road to Hana. Maui is also home to some of the best surfing spots in the world, so if you're a surfer, be sure to bring your board!
Road to Hana:
Maui is the second-largest of the Hawaiian islands, and it's full of incredible resorts, beaches, and cliff-jumping spots. From snorkeling in Molokini Crater to watching the sunset at Haleakala National Park, Maui has it all. Let's start this off with one of the most famous destinations on the island, the Road to Hana.
The Road to Hana is a 64-mile long road that runs along Maui's northeast coast. The round trip can take anywhere from five to ten hours depending on how many stops you make, so it's perfect for a day trip. Along the road, you can visit Twin Falls, a short hike up to some waterfalls. When we were there, it had just finished raining, so we didn't get in the water. Still, when conditions are calm, it's a great place to swim.
As we kept driving on the Road to Hana, we came across a random bamboo forest. I just pulled off the road, and there was this little path into this dark forest, reminding me of the horror movie In The Tall Grass. There was a little waterfall down at the bottom, and if you kept going, there were some insane waterfalls upstream. I just think bamboo looks so cool!
You'll also come across Honomano Beach, one of the few places on the Road to Hana that has the road right next to the coast, so there are some incredible views. I found a waterfall that fell straight into the ocean.
Waianapanapa State Park
As you get close to the end, you'll reach Waianapanapa State Park. It costs about ten dollars to get in and is well known for its black sand lava beach. The sand feels so good on your feet and is just so different compared to other beaches. There's also a cool lava tube on the beach you'll have to explore. When we were there, we found this sketchy cliff jump, my brother decided to send it. It was a little crazy!
Now, let's head to the Pipiwai Trail. This is usually the farthest place people go on the Road to Hana. It's this 3.4-mile hike that goes through a beautiful bamboo forest and ends at Waimoku Falls.
One of my favorite places on the Road to Hana is the Venus Pools. It's a natural pool with several waterfalls, and what's so unique about it is that it connects to the ocean, so there are like some little waves that make it into the pond. We *** there towards the end of the day, and I really wanted to cliff jump, so I checked the water depth and found this really cool ledge and sent a few gators off of it. It was honestly a magical experience being there and definitely one of the highlights of the trip.
Haleakala National Park
After that, let's head to the top of Maui to visit Haleakala National Park. It's home to the Haleakula Volcano, which is Maui's highest point at 10, 023 feet high. When you're there, you'll feel like you're on another planet. The crater is filled with tons of volcanic domes, and it's just such a strange yet beautiful place. I've been to Haleakala for both sunrise and sunset, so if you want to go for sunrise, you'll have to make a reservation beforehand, but for sunset, you just pay the park entrance fee and go.
Overall, Maui is a fantastic vacation destination that should be on everyone's travel bucket list. With its stunning natural beauty, diverse range of activities, and warm hospitality, it's no wonder that Maui is one of the most popular islands in Hawaii. So, start looking for flights to Maui and get ready for an unforgettable adventure!
