Maui, The Valle Isle

House of the Sun

House of the Sun

maui_mapbgThe most unforgettable and awe-inspiring experience you can have on Maui is watching the sunrise from the lofty summit of Haleakala, the volcanic peak that gave rise to Maui. Watching dawn paint the sky in fiery hues as the world’s largest dormant volcano emerges into view is an awesome experience. You’ll truly understand what Hale (house) Akala (sun) means. You have to get up really early though and drive to the top. Early is around 3am because it takes about 2 hours to drive. Bring something warm. It’s cold up there. If you really want to have fun, book a bike tour so that you can glide all the way down the volcano with hardly any effort. It’s very cool.

The bike tours end in the hip (cool) surfing mecca of Pa’ia, whose eclectic cafes dish up amazing lunchtime delights. If you like fish, you have to eat at the best fish restaurant in Hawaii, Mama’s Fish House.

Before you head to the beaches on the other side of the island, be sure to stop at Iao Valley. It will take your breath away.

Little Beach

Little Beach

On Maui, the afternoon belongs to the beach. Join the crowds ogling daredevil boardriders at Ho’okipa, the windsurfing capital of the world. Then drive over to the other side of the Island to Big

Beach, which is my favorite; and if you’re daring, Little Beach. Both are beautiful but Little Beach if for those who are a bit more open-minded.

Big Beach

The beach near all the resorts is really nice too its called Kaanapali Beach.

And if you like to snorkel, book a trip to Molokini, a crater that collapsed into the sea thousands of years ago creating the perfect reef for beautiful fish. And if you’re up for a little club-crawling, Lahaina offers a sizzling night scene.
