Maui see + do

Though Maui is known for luxury and sophistication, it is not short on natural wonders. There's nothing wrong with sitting on your beach chair, of course, but perhaps the island's kite- and windsurfers will inspire you to get the adrenaline pumping. Head to the 10,000-foot summit of Haleakala for great hiking and downhill bike rides), or check out the Molokini atoll, a favorite dive and snorkel spot. There's a large community here dedicated to healthy living, with yoga classes and spas a big focus. Another highlight is the drive to Hana, a twisty scenic road devoid of high-rises, fast food, shopping malls, and technology; you'll meet perhaps the only native Hawaiians you're likely to encounter on all of Maui. Speaking of driving, while Maui isn't as large as the Big Island, count on racking up some miles on your rental car—the trip from Honolua Bay to Wailuku is about 90 minutes by car. But the journey is just part of the experience, and you won't lack for tempting shops, restaurants, and, of course, beaches along the way.
