4. The Beach

Hawaiian Lū‘auTake some time to unwind at Maui’s beaches, which are renowned around the world. Ho‘okipa Beach, is known for their wind surfing. Many people come to this beach to watch the wind surfers, catch the breeze and even see turtles year-round.

For a more family-friendly experience, head to Keawakapu Beach. The white sand beach is less frequented than others and a popular swimming spot. You can rent snorkeling gear and paddleboards. Just keep an eye on the conditions during the winter since the beach can receive large swells.
