3 Days in Maui

Day 1:  Catch Some Waves 
10:00 AM 
Maui is known for its fabulous beaches, so why not start the morning soaking in some rays? For those who want a bit more adventure, hit the waves for some top-notch surfing. Maui’s Kaanapali Beach is home to a nightly cliff diving ceremony that you do not want to miss. www.gohawaii.com/maui
12:00 PM 
Three miles to the southwest of Maui is the tiny crescent shaped island of Molokini, just one of the places to experience some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in the world. Dive into the world of colorful fish, sea turtles, and coral formations. http://go.mauicharters.com/
6:00 PM 
End the day with a magnificent view of the sunset on a dinner cruise. Most cruises offer expansive views of Maui’s mountains on one side and the islands of Molokai and Lanai on the other. You might even see a whale or two while enjoying your meal. Most cruises depart from the historic Lahaina Harbor or Maalaea Bay. www.ohanafun.net
Day 2: Take in the Sights
5:00 AM 
You’ll have to wake up early, but watching the sunrise atop Haleakala Crater, an active shield volcano, is well worth it. From almost 10,000 feet above sea level, watching the color of the sky and clouds change before daybreak is one of Maui’s most memorable experiences. www.gohawaii.com/maui
12:00 PM
One of the best ways to take in all the natural wonders of Maui is on foot. Discover hidden waterfalls, sliding sands, bamboo forests, and volcanic landscapes. Hiking trails are available through both the Haleakala National Park and the Iao Valley State Park. www.gohawaii.com/maui
Day 3: Rest and Relaxation 
9:00 AM
With 14 courses to choose from, golf on Maui is an experience all in its own. You’ll see why it’s difficult to imagine a more dramatic setting for these 18-hole masterpieces, with fairways abutting ancient lava flows, tees surrounded by palm groves, and greens arched by rainbows formed in the ocean mist. http://www.gohawaii.com/maui/experiences/golf
5:00 PM
Sunset is the perfect time for a luau and any trip is not complete without this traditional Hawaiian experience. Dine on Kalua pig while listening to live music complete with leis and performances of the hula. www.oldlahainaluau.com
