Why Maui Should Be At The Top of Your Vacation Bucket List 

Maui is one of Hawaii’s best islands, and it deserves to be right at the top of your bucket list. It has a little bit of everything, making it the perfect taste of Hawaiian life for those who only have a limited number of days in this stunning paradise, and don’t have time to island hop. 

With Maui, you don’t need to. Maui offers so much for those on every budget. You can splurge on a five-star hotel room, or plan more economically by booking one of these stunning rentals that lets larger groups stay in the same spot (and gives you access to a kitchen). With so many options your stay will be magnificent, especially when you consider these top Maui facts: 

  1. You’ll Be Spoiled for Beautiful Scenery  

Maui boasts lush jungles and sandy beaches – two great reasons for making Maui your vacation destination! One of the top things to do on Maui is taking a leisurely road trip along the Road to Hana with plenty of stops along the way – not only will you drive through beautiful rainforests but there are waterfalls, hidden beaches and charming little towns along your route; don’t forget the views at Haleakala summit either, too – something which should definitely not be overlooked when in Maui!

  1. Adventurers of All Levels Have Something to Do 

Ziplining, paddleboarding and cycling – among many other adventures – provide ample opportunity for excitement and variety when travelling. There are options for all levels of adventurers as well, meaning you can start small with a beginner’s friendly paddleboarding tour, or delve deep by surfing the massive waves of Pe-Ahi (experienced surfers only). 

  1. Immerse Yourself in Hawaii’s Rich Heritage

No trip to Hawaii is complete without actually engaging and immersing yourself with the rich heritage of the Hawaiian people. From your vacation rentals in Maui, you can take tours to the sacred temples to learn about the real Hawaiian culture, and try to stick to Hawaiian-owned and operated experiences to help the locals out best. 

  1. Eat Incredible Food, No Matter Your Budget 

You will eat well in Maui, regardless of whether you’re on a shoestring budget or can splash the cash. If you are on a budget, stick to street food or farmer’s markets and make incredible meals right in your condo’s kitchen (if you have one). One tip that will immediately give you so much to remember and take home from your trip to Maui is to take a traditional Hawaiian cooking class so that you can take the flavors of Hawaii home with you. 

  1. Soak in the Relaxation

Don’t forget to just sit and soak in the sights, sounds, and ambiance. From lounging on the beach, to taking a moment to just sit and reflect at the top of a stunning summit, that time will help you spiritually connect to this ancient and incredible land you are on. 

  1. Splurge on Spas 

Then, finally, it’s a great idea to splurge on one of the many spa packages hosted by the hostels or spas themselves. From a massage to a pedicure – no matter what it is that you can afford, you deserve the moment of indulgent relaxation.
