Maui has many interesting activities to offer. The south and west have a better climate and very beautiful beaches that are definitely worth visiting. One of the visitors’ favourites is Kaanapali Beach, which features in all the world’s best beach listings, and on the south side, Makena Beach is also world class. Honolua Bay is a special place, above all for diving in the summer. It forms part of the Mokuleia Marine Life Conservation District for the importance of its rich marine life, you can be sure to find an abundance of fish and coral. We recommend renting the equipment from the local shops, it’ll be a lot more economical.
Watching the sunrise at the Kaleakala Crater is an experience you will never forget. You’ll have to leave very early and don’t forget to take warm clothes with you. You can go on an organised trip or by yourself with a rental car if you pay a small entrance fee. If you have rented a car, you shouldn’t miss driving along Hana Highway, famous for its majestic waterfalls, wild coastline and exuberant tropical rainforest. If you visit the island in February, you are lucky as it’s the best time to see the whales during their annual migration. You’ll see them easily from the Pali cliffs, between Lahaina and Wailea.
