What to do and see

On a Maui honeymoon, it’s easy to pursue your favourite leisure activities, go sightseeing or do nothing at all!

Pick your own spot to sunbathe on the gorgeous white sands of Maui's Kaanapali Beach; swim and snorkel among colourful tropical fish at Black Rock; try windsurfing at Kanaha or Hoolipa; go bodysurfing off Oneloa Beach; surf one of the surfing world’s prime spots at Ho’okipa Beach; and scuba dive the Molokine Reserve.

Discover Maui‘s natural beauty by exploring on foot the lush green valley floor of the Iao Valley, surrounded by towering emerald peaks and lush vegetation. Hike or cycle across the slopes of the massive 4900ha Haleakala Crater then descend into the rugged lunar-like landscape of the world’s largest dormant volcano for an unforgettable honeymoon experience.

Explore the scenic twists and turns of the spectacular Hana Highway by car and discover towering sea cliffs, stunning vistas and exciting beaches between Kailua and Hana on Maui's northeast coast.

Follow walking trails to historic sites and ancient temple ruins such as Piilanihale, Hawaii's largest heiau (temple), and find lava caves, blowholes, picture-perfect waterfalls and swim-holes where you can cool-off with a refreshing dip on a day trip from your honeymoon resort.

Stroll the historic streets of the old whaling town of Lahaina and watch humpback whales frolic in the warm waters off McGregor Point near Maalaea in south Maui.

Savour delicious tropical fruit at a roadside stand, such as lychees, mangoes, star fruit, passion fruit and papaya – perfect additions for a secluded honeymoon picnic along the way.

See colourful wild flowers and breathe in the sweet scent of lavender and eucalyptus on a horseback ride across the high country pastures of Makawao, Kula and Ulupalakua.

Tee-off at the challenging par-72 course at Kapulua Resort on west Maui or try one of three courses on offer at Wailea Golf Club on south Maui.
