Maui Vacation Planner
Arrival day 1 (June 26 Mon)
After settling in we can take a walk to charlie Young Beach which is across the street from the condo.
Day 2 (June 27 Tues)
Lots of nice beaches. Ulua has good snorkeling, good size parking, rest rooms but not much shade. Wailea nice but crowded. Maluaka called Turtle Town.
Early morning (7am - 9am) snorkel - Charley Young Beach
Day 3 (June 28 Wed)
Probably need to do Nakalele or Honolua. Nakalele (blowhole) is a longer 1.6 mile hike probably too much for Nico. Honolua is a short hike through an awesome forest that looks prehistoric. Plus good snorkeling if no floods. DT Fleming is a pretty family park good spot for lunch. If you want more snorkeling and less hiking All the alternate beaches are great but you need to get there early in the morning for parking (except old airport beach).
Early morning (7am - 9am) snorkel - Wailea Beach
Day 4 (June 29 Thur) East Maui - Road to Hana
There are many activities along the Road to Hana with only time for 1 or 2. I would suggest Waianapanapa Park (black sand beach) requires a reservation time slot and fee of 5.00 per person. Hana lava tubes is a nice self guided tour through a lava tube (cave). There is a nice red tea maze.
Day 5 (June 30 Fri) Central Maui Ma'alaea Harbor
Maui Ocean Center has a nice aquarium.There is a fee for entrance. Olowalu is a great snorkel spot for coral and turtles further out. Lahaina has tons of art galleries, food, and shops.
Day 6 (July 1 Sat)
Iao Valley State Park is famous for the Iao Needle. Nice hike on pavement. The Cultural Center is worth a stop. The Tropical Plantation is nice although there is a fee for the train ride around the place.
Early morning (7am - 9am) snorkel- Maluaka Beach
Day 7 (July 2 Sun)
Up Country is the area in the foothills of Mt. Haleakala. Kula Gardens does cost to get in but the garden is pretty nice. Heading north to the coast you can stop at Makawao, a nice little tourist town. Paia is at the end of the road. Hookipa Beach is one of the world's best wind surfing meccas.
Early morning (7am - 9am) snorkel- Olowalu Beach
Day 8 (July 3 Mon)
Other Alternate Activities
Luaus have gotten much more expensive ranging from 180 - 300 per person . sub ride in Lahaina is cool (a real submarine). Garden of Eden is a nice garden on the road to Hana.
