Kaanapali Beach - West Maui's signature beach, Kaanapali Beach was once the retreat for the royalty of Maui and now has some of Hawaii’s best hotels and resorts. Kaanapali Beach’s most famous attraction is jumping off of the sea cliff, Puu Kekaa or Black Rock.
Wailea Beach - Nestled between the Four Seasons and the Grand Wailea resorts, Wailea beach is a sandy public beach in Wailea, perfect for sunbathing, swimming, boogie boarding, body surfing, snorkeling, and more.
Whale Watching – The best whale watching in all of Hawaii can be found off of Maui’s coasts. Whales come to Maui each year to mate and nurse their young in the warm Pacific waters. Whale watching cruises are available from Lahaina Harbor or Maalaea Harbor, which also offers a wide variety of sea excursions.
Haleakala National Park – Haleakala is Maui’s largest dormant volcano and translates as, "The House of the Sun.” The slopes of Haleakala are now the home of many residents and is referred to as “up country.” Drive up to the peak of Haleakala to take a look inside the crater of the mountain and perhaps experience for yourself the Sun rising from or setting into the crater.
Iao Valley State Park – Nestled in Maui’s West Mountains, Iao Valley State Park offers stunning landscapes and an immense amount of flowing fresh water. Take a short hike, which features excellent views of the famous “Iao Needle.”
