Day 1  Relax on the Beach 

Your first day on Maui should be exclusively reserved for relaxing on the beach. After all, you will have spent countless hours traveling, so take it easy and release your stress. Maui offers a selection of stunning beaches you can enjoy. Put on your bathing suit, pack your towel, sunscreen, and sunglasses, and head over to Ka’anapali Beach or Paako Cove, for example! 

Day 2 – Hit the Road 

Now that you’ve regained some strength after relaxing all day at the beach, it’s time you discover Maui’s wonders, and what better way to do that than go on an epic road trip? Maui offers stunning drives that you cannot miss. Our favorite and most popular is the Road to Hana. Don’t forget to pack your camera because you will see some incredible views of the island and the ocean, especially at Huelo Point Lookout 

Day 3 – Discover the Upcountry 

If you want to escape the crowds and explore the wonders of the island, go on a day trip to the Upcountry! There, you can marvel at the farmland, botanical gardens, and gorgeous mountain scenery. We highly recommend visiting the small town of Kula for its Lavender Farm and the town of Makawaowhich features the most famous bakery on the island, Komoda Store and Bakery! 

Day 4 – Get Out on the Water 

Enough sightseeing – it’s time to enjoy a fun water outing! You can either rent a kayak and paddle along the stunning Hawaiian seashore with your loved ones or hop on a fun Catamaran Tour and enjoy the boat life. Sailing Maui, for example, offers some of the best tours on the island! 

Day 5 – Go on a Hike 

Are you a nature lover? If so, you must explore the Maui trails! One of our favorite hikes is the Haleakala Crater. From the top of this impressive volcano, you’ll witness one of the best overlooks on Maui! Another favorite of ours is located at Kuloa PointThis 0.6mile trail is easy enough for beginners and offers the opportunity to bathe in natural pools!
