The most sacred place on Maui. Come here to learn about the Hawaiian history of Iao Valley, take a short hike to view the famous Iao "needle," or a longer hike into the valley. You can take a dip in the stream, picnic in the picnic area boasting pavilions and several little structures and gardens…

An easy trail with kids. We took a guided tour, and the kids loved learning about the local plants and fruits.

“ The Maui Ocean Center was named as one of the top twenty-five aquariums in the United States. One visit to this extraordinary underwater world, and you will quickly discover just why. Be sure to put some time aside to visit the Maui Ocean Center. The center has over sixty outdoor and indoor exhibits designed to educate visitors about our Pacific waters, as well as about the Hawaiian culture. This beautiful aquarium features a 750,000 galleon tank with a walk-through tunnel; it is filled with sharks, sting rays, and a large assortment of tropical fish. The aquarium also features a turtle lagoon and a surge zone, a shallow reef and open ocean exhibits. After a relaxing day exploring the Maui Ocean Center, stop by the award winning Seascape Restaurant. Enjoy a refreshing Mai Tai or Cucumber Watermelon-Rita as you take in the ocean views and reflect on your exciting day! Guided tours are available, as well as shark dives in the aquarium`s tank (for certified divers only).”

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.”

“Unlimited gorgeous scenic hikes. Drive up, park and walk. You need an SUV if you want to drive all the way up but it really isnt necessary to do that.”
