Snorkel at Molokini
One of the most beautiful yet adventurous activity in Maui is taking a trip to Molokini, and go for snorkeling in the beautiful blue waters.

The waters is beautiful with multicolored corals and diverse marine life. You just have to grab on a snorkeling kit and dive into the waters to explore the paradise that lies underneath. The surreal beauty and the trill of diving into a volcano make is one of the must try activity is Maui.
Watch the Sunrise from Haleakalā
Haleakalā, or the East Maui Volcano, is a huge part of Maui quite literally. It forms more than 75% of the total land mass of the whole island, and the Haleakalā National Park is a major tourist attraction of the county. However, the name Haleakalā means “House of the Rising Sun” – which can be a hint of why watching the sunrise from the summit of this volcano is one of the top most things to do while you are in Maui.
Granted, having to wake up really, really early in the morning and reaching the top of the mountain is a lot of work. However, all of that work is worth it, as you’ll get to see a sunrise which is arguably the best sunrise view in the whole world. Watching the sun rise up from the blanket of clouds, lighting up the beautiful island and the majestic ocean down below is truly an unforgettable scenery. There’s no better way to start a day in Maui, and it is truly a must do activity while you are here.
Road Trip to Hāna
Over 64 miles long, the Hāna Highway lies beautiful with spectacular views of lush rain forests, picturesque waterfalls and powdery beaches. However, the beauty of Hāna Highway is not the complete story. This long stretch of road has over six hundred switchbacks and forty six single-lane bridges. Although beautiful, this three hour long journey to Hana is quite a challenging ride. And after the exhilarating trip, you reach Hana – the secluded, pristine eastern town, waiting for you with all its glory. The stark beauty and adrenaline filled experience that this road offers, and the scenic location which waits for you at its end,make it the road trip on which you just have to go on while you are in Maui.
