I only touched on Maui for four short days- after my two short weeks in Asia I decided to extend my time in Hawaii and hop on over to Maui, but again it was like the blink of an eye. I barely got to see what I wanted to, let alone explore outside the beaten path, but I can definitely tell you this was not my last time in Maui :)
Top 5 favorites on Maui
1. Alii Kula Lavender Farm- this is a MUST DO if youre visiting Maui! The lavender scones are incredible and the lavender lemonade is killer!
2. Sunrise at Haleakala
|woke up at 330am to catch the sunrise above the clouds, so worth it|
3. Sliding Sands Crater Hike
|one of the top 5 quietest places on earth;|
incredible because it divides the small island of Maui into
a desert and a rainforest
4. Ho'okpia Beach Park
|mostly rocks and some giant sea turtles|
5. The Road to Hana: Would HIGHLY recommend purchasing the Gypsy Guide for $5 if you are doing the Road to Hana on your own. We would've missed so many neat things without it, because Americans and signs are not friends.
|giant $5 road coconuts are a must!|
a. Chings Pond
|the most freezing cold water I have ever felt in my life|
b. Black Sand Beach
c. Waianapanapa Caves
d. Ke'anae Arboretum
|giant four leaf clovers- appropriate for St. Patricks Day|
My absolute FAVORITE place on the road trip to Hana. Rainbow Eucalyptus trees, I mean come on. Earth you are SO cool.
