Trail
“Great short hike with amazing views! Also where most rescues occur. Wear hiking or tennis shoes, hat, sunscreen, bring a lot of water, and go in the afternoon to avoid the hot sun and lack of breeze in the mountains. Crowded hike, but afternoons are less crowded. $5 fee for cars, $1 for pedestrians. ”

Seafood Restaurant
$$$$
“Mamas fish house is by far one of the most beautiful and delicious restaurants in all of Hawaii. The view is absolutely breathtaking, the ambience will blow you away and the food is just incredible. The fish is so fresh they will tell you where it was caught and the name of the fisherman who caught it. They are very famous for their mai tais but they have an incredible wine selection and make phenomenal cocktails. I love the beef Polynesian which is a poke’ style filet served in a grilled papaya half. The venison appetizer is also one of my favorites. They have great sashimi, and Tahitian Ceviche served in a coconut half. ”

National Park
“This national Park is a must see while here on Maui. It’s about an hour drive from our cottage a lot of people like to reserve a spot for viewing the sunrise. But I don’t find that totally necessary going there anytime of day is beautiful and you don’t have to make a reservation to go for the afternoon or sunset. You can hit up the lavender farm while you’re up there as well.”
