5 Ways You Can Make the Best Out of Your Maui Vacation


As the second largest island in Hawaii, Maui is one of the most visited islands in the state. Thanks to its different landscapes and astonishing beaches, which many think are the best in the world, you’ll have a magical getaway in this little piece of heaven on Earth. 

However, you might not have as much time as you’d like to enjoy all the little wonders Maui has to offer. Don’t worry, though! We’ve got you covered. Here are five ways you can make the most out of your stay in Maui.


Rent a car
When you arrive on the island, you’ll soon realize that renting a car is a necessity. As we mentioned before, Maui is one of the largest islands in Hawaii and you’ll want a comfortable and fast option to move around the place. Even though renting a car can make us anxious sometimes, there are many travel websites that help people find the right vehicles and prices depending on their needs. We recommend getting an economy car since you’ll save some money on the rental and get better gas mileage. Also, check your credit card and auto insurance benefits since some of them might actually offer discounts and even cover rental cars. 

Travel with friends and family 
Maui will always greet you with beautiful landscapes, traditions, and fun activities, making it ideal to create wonderful memories with the people you love the most. Besides, it’s also a great way to save money. You all can get a nicer place to stay if you split the costs as well as if you share rental cars. This also comes in handy when buying groceries. 

Just remember that this is supposed to be one of the best trips of your life so choose the right people to share this amazing experience with and enjoy Maui the best way possible. 
 
Plan out your activities
If you’ve done your research, you know that there are plenty of activities you can do in Maui. From swimming with sharks to touring the island on a helicopter, you will never run out of options in Maui. Check out Top Maui Hotels for some of the best advice on how to make the best of your vacation.

However, this can be a bit overwhelming. There are almost too many things to do that you’d like to try out and too little time. You see, some people like to pack their vacation days with too many activities and, at the end of the end, they are too tired to actually do them all or perhaps they even go over budget if they book too much. 

Before you follow any itinerary you find out there on the internet, research each activity and get an estimated time of long they will take. We recommend booking three activities per day max. to make the most out of your day without running out of time and energy to actually enjoy some moments that are bound to happen in Maui. 

The island is known for its beautiful sunsets, beaches, and diverse landscapes, so perhaps you’ll want to stay a little longer to able to take in all the small things Maui gives you generously, and you deserve to give yourself enough time to fully enjoy them. 

Travel during the off-season
As we all know, Maui is a pretty popular destination, so prices can go up during the holiday season. If you want to tour the island without finding big crowds everywhere you go to, plus saving some bucks while booking tickets and hotel rooms, April to May and September to October are the ideal months to visit Maui. 

Besides, you won’t miss out on anything. Actually, there is a high chance you will even get to see humpback whales from November to May in the southern shores of Maui.

Go for the food trucks
Maui has an extensive variety of food trucks that will make it extremely easy for you to try out all the different traditional flavors of the island. You won’t have to go to a local fare in order to enjoy some really good Maui food. Food trucks will give you tradition, variety, and budget-friendly prices. 

However, if you do go to a restaurant or decide to head to a bar, make sure to go during Happy Hour if you want to save money.

Even though these are our main five ways to make the most out of your Maui vacation, these are some extra tips you need to know before going to Maui:

Bring your own snorkeling gear since renting one on the island can get pricey. 
You’ll find that you’ll need to be scuba certified to do many water-related activities, so if you’re interested in them, be aware that getting the certification takes around two and three days in Maui. If you have time before your trip, you might like to take care of that before heading to the island. 
Lastly, be safe. There are many ways you can get hurt in Maui, and even though this is not what we want to think about when we are traveling, it’s still a good idea to be careful. 

Maui will enchant you with its marvelous landscapes and scenery, so be prepared to fall in love with this little island in Oceania. If you take these tips with you, you’ll have a wonderful experience in one of the best places in the world.
