My number one, overall, recommendation of a place to travel is Maui, Hawaii. A destination for all ages, its gorgeous beaches, fantastic sunsets, and perfect weather make it a must visit. Now, you may think that a nine hour plane ride may be a little lengthy and tiring, but it is well worth it. Once you step off the plane and smell the fresh air you will never want to leave. Here are my recommendations to make the most of your trip:
1. While in Maui, besides lounging on the beach and getting your tan on, I also recommend some tourist attractions. A must do, is the Road to Hana. This is a sixty four mile car ride along the side of a mountain up to the breathtaking city of Hana. Along the way, you will pass many black sand beaches, farms, and small waterfalls which will keep you wanting to see more.
2. Another activity I recommend is visiting Mount Haleakala. Mount Haleakala is a volcano that you can either bike, drive, or walk up. Some people go to watch the sunset, and others go to watch the sun rise. Whichever way you decide to go, it will take your breath away. At the top of the volcano you are above the clouds. This is a very unique experience that you can not get anywhere else. I definitely recommend it.
3. Another must see in Maui is a place called Baby Beach. This beach is not only beautiful to look at, but also a great place to relax and spend the day. It is called this because it is an enclosed reef where children or babies can safely play. From personal experience, I can say that this beach has some of the softest sand I have ever felt. With crystal clear water and powder soft sand, this is a picturesque sight that you won’t want to miss.
4. Lastly, before you end your trip in Maui I recommend that you take part in a traditional Hawaiian Luau. This is a great way to experience the Hawaiian culture. You will get to sample traditional Hawaiian cuisine, watch hula dancers, and look at Hawaiian art. There is no better way to experience the tradition and culture of Hawaii then this.
As you can see, not only is Hawaii beautiful in its own right, and there’s no doubt that you won’t have a great time on a vacation there, but if you visit these sights and try these activities I can guarantee that it will make your trip one hundred times better. Happy Travels! Aloha!
