Local Area & Activities
Paradise is found. Idyllic sandy beaches, scenic drives, and some of the most stunning natural wonders of the world - Maui is an island of endless discovery.
Lahaina is more than just a cute beach town with a lot of t-shirt vendors. It’s full of great dining, shopping, and historical landmarks. The humpback whales love to swim by its shores in winter.
Literally steps from our front door is the beautiful stretch of sandy Kaanapali Beach. You’ll have a tough time deciding between going snorkeling, kayaking, or just relaxing - and an easy time doing them all.
Snorkeling & Scuba Diving
Let’s be clear: Maui’s waters are so clear that you can see up to 150 feet depths. Add in the world’s friendliest sea turtles, spinner dolphins, plus hundreds of species of fish, and you’ve got the finest snorkeling and diving in all of Hawaii.
Maui is where it’s at for all kinds of surfing and SUP-ing (stand up paddleboarding). Wild waves and skilled instructors are easy to find, so get in the water and take up your favorite water sport.
All aboard for an experience that is truly one-of-a-kind. Head to Maui Sailing Canoe in Wailea to sail the waters of Maui aboard a waapea (traditional Hawaiian Outrigger Canoe).
You can hang ten in the water, but you can hang 3600 on a zipline. There are many places to zipline across the island, including Maui’s longest zipline at 3,600 feet.
