Maui Activities


This is a partial list of things to do in Maui. Most of the items in this list are located in South Maui. We prefer South Maui over West Maui because it is drier and less windy, and also because West Maui is too remote and crowded for our tastes.


  • Kamaole Beach III is across the road from the Maui Kamaole Resort. Not only is this a great beach, but there is also a huge, family-friendly lawn that is great for tossing Frisbees and flying kites.
  • Keawakapu Beach is about a five-minute walk south from the Maui Kamaole Resort. Long, with fine sand, this fantastic beach can be less crowded than some of the others in south Maui.
  • Kamaole Beach I and II are north of Kamaole Beach III. Next to the road, you can park near the beach.
  • Ma'alaea Beach, just north of Kihei, is over three miles long. A great walking and jogging beach.
  • Mokapu Beach is a very picturesque beach in Wailea.
  • Polo Beach is at the south end of a wooden beachside path that starts at Mokapu Beach. The path meanders past five Wailea resorts. You can rent beach and swimming accessories from nearby stands.
  • Ulua Beach, Wailea Beach, Palauea Beach, and Po'olenalena Beach in Wailea.
  • Makena Landing Beach Park, Maluaka Beach, Black Sand Beach, Big Beach, Little Beach,  and La Perouse Bay in Makena.


  • Makena Resort in South Maui has the North Course and the South Course.
  • Wailea Golf Club in South Maui has the Emerald, Gold, and Blue courses.

  • Ka'anapali has two courses in West Maui.

  • The most popular beach for windsurfing experts (and fun to watch) is Ho'okipa Beach, east of Paia.

Whale Watching

  • Whales travel from Alaska and vacation in Hawaii from December to April. Maui is their favorite stomping grounds because of the relatively shallow water between islands.
  • Whale-watching boats leave from Ma'alaea Harbor in South Maui and Lahaina in West Maui.
  • From land you can see whales actually anywhere along the coast, but a couple of good locations are Pu'u Ola'i south of Makena and the scenic lookout just west of the Ma'alaea Harbor.
