7 Hidden Travel Destinations In Maui

Maui Island, Hawaii

The Hawaiian Islands are magical, Maui is one of those beautiful islands. Last month I was lucky enough to spend some time exploring the island of Maui with my family. We had such an amazing time and I want to share that experience with you guys so here’s how to travel Maui in one week. Now I’m just going to put it out there I’m probably going to butcher almost every name I saying this blog but bear with me starting off your trip. So You’re going to arrive Kahului  (airport in Maui, Hawaii) grab your bags and then take a bus uber or taxi into town to pick up your rental car.

Day 1 :- Kahului, city of Kihei.

Now you could definitely pick up a rental car from the airport but if you want to save some money just get one in town of Maui. Now buses and tours will take you to some of the locations but the freedom of having a rental car is going to be unmatched.. So, if you’re heading to Maui I strongly suggest you to go for the rental car before you leave Kahului and head to your place, make a stop at Costco to pick up some groceries. A Hawaiian vacation is not complete without an introductory Costco shop. There are hotels and stuff but we rented a condo through Booking.com(click here for best deals for you!) and you can totally use Airbnb to do the same. We went out on a whim and ended up choosing to stay in the city of Kihei and I think that’s the best place to be.

Exploring Kihei, settling up in Maui

Kihei is such a good location putting you right near the middle of the island allowing you to do day trips in either direction which is really nice. Now that you’ve got some food take some time to relax, crack a beer but make sure you keep an eye on the clock because at 4:00 p.m. you’re going to need to go onto your phone or your computer. All this will make a lot more sense later on in this blog but you need to secure your tickets to the Haleakala volcano sunrise tour. Now, although we’re doing it on a later day you need a ticket and the only way to get a ticket is by purchasing it beforehand online. Approximately 80 tickets are released each day at 4 p.m. at local time and they sell out almost instantly so make sure you start doing this on day one.

Exploring Wahi Ridge trail, Makena beach, Baldwin beach and Lowa Valley

Now to be honest with you guys I’m not much a beach guy, I much prefer exploring so that’s going to be the main focus of this itinerary. But, yesterday you did have a big day so think about taking it easy. Today soak up the Hawaiian vibes by checking out some of Maui’s famous beaches here are a couple of my favorite secret Makena Beach and Baldwin Beach. So now that you’re rested I think we can start adventuring the next couple days, are going to be intense so get ready. First off you’re going to wake up early to hike the Wahi Ridge Trail one of my favorite hikes that we did on a moderate 5 mile round trip hike taking you along the Wahi Ridge up to a beautiful lookout above the mountain snow. The view was great but the journey was definitely my favorite part. It’s fun hike, next up you have to check out the Lowa Valley, it’s a state monument, this will be a nice break after the Waukee ridge trail hike.

It’s a relatively small park that you’ll be able to explore in about an hour and to top it off there is a river that you can swim in. I’m going to be honest I accidentally deleted the footage I took while we were there so hopefully these pictures can do it justice regardless you got to check it out. After that, you’re going to head around the northern tip of Maui where you’ll find a couple more stops you have to be careful though this road as it is a bit sketchy take it slow and you should be fine with my favorite stop along the sketchy Road ways definitely the olivine pools. These pools are awesome during low tide you’re gonna be able to watch the waves crash around you while you swim in these natural volcano pools. The view is great and these are pretty much picture-perfect Maui but if you see big waves entering the pools, do not swim people have died here. If you’re able to exercise caution you should be fine. They are fairly safe but be smart hopefully by now you’ve been able to secure yourself a sunrise pass to mount Haleakala. Once you have your pass get ready for an early morning just made it to the top of Mount HollyAcula it is for 51 right now we got up at 3 a.m. Now although you’re in Hawaii it is still super cold on top of the 10,000 foot mountain. There’s a hut near the top that you can stand inside while you’re watching the sunrise but I’d still wear every piece of warm clothing that you have access to. I’m not kidding its cold and after that take the rest of the day easy and probably take a nap. Today, in the day that you’re going to tackle the iconic road to Hana, what road are we doing today? The road to Hana takes you around the base of Mount Holly Alcala you’ve been to the top you’ve seen the Sun Rise and now you’re going to wind around the base and see some of the coolest spots on the island.

Discovering Cola National Park and Pipwai Trail

Now when going the road to Hana I highly recommend that you do the reverse road to Hana and all that means is that we’re going to be doing it backwards. By doing it backwards you’ve dodged the crowds because they do it the other way and you don’t have to worry about driving the sketchiest part of the road as it gets dark. Because we’re going to do it first in the morning, there are so many things to do and see along the road to Hana but here are a few of my favorites places Cola National Park and specifically the Pipwai Trail was our first stop that really blew my mind. The Pipwai trail is a fairly easy four mile round trip. Hike that winds you through a bamboo forest up to a massive 300 foot waterfall you’ll probably spend two or three hours here so it does take up a chunk of your day. But I still think it’s definitely worth doing you’ll also find the Seven Sacred Pools in Haleakala National Park but they were closed while we were there so hopefully I better love another one of my favorite stops and probably my favorite spot on the entire trip was the Venus pools this is truly one of Maui’s gems.

The Venus Pools, Y Khmer Falls,

The Venus pools essentially a cove surrounded by cliffs and rocks that you can jump off of, water is so warm, it’s nice and blue and it’s really cool because the cove has a barrier of rocks. So, that breaks the waves as they come in leaving you with really nice calm water. Like I said this was my favorite stop along the road to Hana and probably my favorite thing we did a Maui. Another awesome stop is the lower Y Khmer Falls. It’s a really nice fresh water swimming hole off the side of the road with some cliff jumping a waterfall and a rope swing. All three of which as I said there are so many amazing places along the road to Hana you really can’t go wrong with whatever you end up doing. The only advice I have is to get up and get started as early as possible. There’s no way you’ll be able to see everything. But if you’re up early enough you should be able to see what you want to see before it gets dark. Honestly this is one of those things that if you do have an extra day in Maui you could totally spend two days doing the road to Hana.

Molokai tour, stopping in Lahaina and Blackrock Beach

Now to finish off the trip you can’t go back without taking a helicopter ride so that’s what we’re gonna do. While I was in Maui I partnered with Pacific helicopter tours and they blew me away with their doors off Molokai tour. The pilot was super informative telling us all the local stories about Molokai while flying us alongside the ocean side cliffs where we saw tons of waterfalls cascading down. We went through valleys over Peaks. We did steep banks over the ocean reefs. It was an unreal experience. The helicopter ride took about an hour so after that we headed up the can of Pali coast stopping in Lahaina. This is a pretty cool town. It’s quite touristy but it has the old Hawaiian town vibe. Still if you’re into walking streets with tons of shopping and restaurants this is definitely a place you’ve got to checkout. Some of the other beaches and fancier resorts out that way we ended up at Blackrock Beach for some cliff jumping and it wasn’t bad day where we make it a trek to. It’s called Black Rock. It’s a dump going up there the jump was pretty nice but if that doesn’t excite you can probably skip it because the other beaches that I had mentioned earlier are much nicer.

There it is guy’s that is how you travel Maui in one week or I guess it’s technically six days but with traveling and stuff for all intents and purposes it’s a week. Thank you so much for reading it. I appreciate every single one of you so much and I’ll see you all in another blog!

  5. I might also like to express that most people who find themselves with no health insurance are typically students, self-employed and people who are jobless. More than half from the uninsured are under the age of Thirty five. They do not sense they are wanting health insurance as they are young and healthy. Their income is often spent on property, food, along with entertainment. Some people that do go to work either entire or as a hobby are not given insurance by way of their work so they head out without due to the rising cost of health insurance in the United States. Thanks for the thoughts you write about through this site.
