Are you planning a Maui family vacation?
Maui is a beautiful place to visit and spend some quality time with your ohana! And if this is your first time visiting the island, you’ll be happy to know there is plenty to do here for kids and adults of all ages.
Without further ado, here are the best things to do on a Maui family vacation.
1. Drive the road to Hana on your Maui family vacation
Have you ever heard about the road to Hana? It’s not just a regular highway; it’s one of Maui’s best attractions!
If you’re interested in taking your family on a really fun road trip, you can rent a car and some camping gear (or bring your own) to enjoy a fun family adventure!
The road is lined with beautiful waterfalls and stunning views. You won’t be sorry for taking a day to explore the highway! You can even stop for a swim along the way, so don’t forget to pack your bathing suit, a beach towel, and apply enough sunscreen!
2. See the sunrise or sunset from Haleakala
Viewing the sunrise or the sunset from Haleakala is one of the most breathtaking and one-of-a-kind things you can do on a Maui family vacation! We recommend you save some time and make the trip to the crater. There’s nothing like admiring the sun come up or go to sleep from 10,000 ft!
3. Add whale watching and snorkeling to your to-do list
If you’re planning to visit Maui in fall or during winter, you should definitely plan a whale watching tour for the whole ohana and a snorkeling trip if your kids are old enough to snorkel!
Some of Maui’s most incredible creatures live under the sea and you simply can’t miss seeing the whales while you’re on the island. Both are guaranteed to transform a simple vacation into an unforgettable experience!
4. Attend a luau with your ohana
Attending a luau on Maui is so much fun! And it’s a great way to get a taste of the Hawaiian culture.
Although every luau here is different, all of them feature fun entertainment and delicious food. So, if this is your first time planning Maui family vacation, taking the time to go to a luau is an absolute must!
5. Enjoy some family time at the beach
Going to the beach – yes, even in fall or winter! – is one of the best things you can do on Maui!
Whether you just want to lay there and bask in the sun or if you plan activities like swimming, surfing or paddleboarding, we recommend you prep in advance to avoid sunburn and dehydration. After your day at the beach comes to an end, don’t forget to use an After Browning Lotion!
Our Amazing Maui Babe After Browning Lotion aids in healing skin damaged by the sun, salt, and wind while helping you seal your deep, dark tan and prevent peeling and flaking.
6. Explore some hidden gems on Maui
Last but definitely not least, Maui is full of beautiful places you can explore with your ohana! So, if the weather is on your side, don’t hesitate to plan a day of hiking and exploring some of the most beautiful gems that Maui has to offer!
