Maui is known to be one of the top and best vacation destinations in the world, whether you’re looking for a relaxing beachside getaway or an island adventure, this place has it all. One thing that makes Maui so unique is that it contains 10 out of 13 of the world’s ecosystems; it’s no wonder everyone wants to travel to Maui. Depending on where you are located on the island, you will have a chance to discover new scenery. But in our next few blogs, let’s take some time to explore the areas in South Maui, Maalaea, North Kihei, South Kihei, and Wailea/Makena, and their incredible features, amenities and activities.

As you begin to enter into South Maui, a small but quaint harbor community awaits. Maalaea is home to one of the few harbors here on the island, where you can embark on an ocean adventure out onto the Pacific. Here you have a number of boat tours and activities to choose from: take a romantic sunset sail, snorkel tour out to Molokini, enjoy a relaxing dinner cruise, go sport fishing, or whale watching and see the humpback whales during their migration season. The Maalaea Harbor Shops also offer a variety of great restaurants, including both casual and fine dining, small shops and boutiques for your island souvenirs, and one of the nation’s largest tropical reef aquariums, Maui Ocean Center.

Maalaea vacation rentals are also available for your stay. If you’re looking for something a little more low-key than a busy and packed hotel, these vacation rentals might just be exactly what you need. Enjoy miles of quiet white sandy beach and breathtaking views of the ocean, which offer spectacular colorful sunsets. Whether you’re looking for a vacation rental on Maui, something fun to do with family and friends, or something for just the two of you, be sure to check out Maalaea and the Harbor Shops.
