Maui Travel Guide

We like Maui a lot and will definitely go back (probably after another trip to Kauai first though!).  Maui is spread out and you’ll spend a lot of time driving around the island to see the different spots/attractions.

Where to stay:

The Ritz Carlton is far up on the North Shore but the grounds are beautiful (it’s surrounded by tall trees that make you feel like you’re in the Northwest) and the rooms are great. If you want to stay in another area, the Grand Wailea Hotel is a grand hotel with lots to do (it’s where “Just Go With It” was filmed).

Must eats:

Mama’s Fish House for a special night out (open air, super Hawaiian…kinda magical).

Semi-casual sushi at Sansei (it’s way up on the North Shore but that area is worth a drive…see below).

Paia Fish Market (went there twice for their fish tacos!).

Must dos, must-visits or things to consider:

The hippie town of Paia (pretty close to Mama’s Fish House and the Road to Hana so you could stop there while in the area).

Lahaina, it’s a honky-tonk fishing village but fun to visit (near there is a cool pie shop, called Leoda’s, where they sell mini banana cream pies…worth a pit stop).

Drive up to the North Shore and stop at the overlook in Peahi, which is where the big wave surfing break called “Jaws” is located.  While you’re up there, stop at the Nakalele Blowhole.

Road to Hana –  We did this drive but only half way…it was rainy and started making us a little nauseous with all of the turns. Try to go on a nice day and super early so you are not driving when it’s dark…heard the black sand beach at the end is awesome if you can make it that far.
