There’s so much made of Maui’s whale watching, snorkeling, and boating opportunities that sometimes we forget all it has to offer on land.
Maui’s collection of beaches are considered some of the best in the world, and the island has spectacular scenic drives, dense jungles, and tall volcanic peaks to explore. Most notably, the hiking trails of Haleakalā rise to more than 10,000 feet above sea level.
Ocean-view golf, cultural luaus, waterfall chasing, and horseback riding can be found on every Hawaiian Island, but Maui’s landscape makes each one of them unique. It is via these outdoor and culturally-based activities that we are able to see and experience Maui through a different lens.
