#6 Snorkel

Hawaii’s warm water is great for snorkeling. Explore underwater to discover hundreds of species of fish and coral reef. You can snorkel from shore at beaches such as Kapalua Beach, Napili, Kanapali and many more. Off shore, excursions to Molokini Crater are also a top snorkeling spot in Maui.

#7 Take A Drive

While everyone has heard of the Road to Hana, a drive that is equally beautiful yet not as well known, is a drive through upcountry and south coast of Maui. You will get some breathtaking views of the coastline from upcountry since it is well above sea level. Check out more of what you would see along the drive in this video here: https://youtu.be/MI08TW7Sz7o
