Find Romance at Sea
Hundreds of years ago,
POLYNESIANS were tattooed with “needles” made from sharpened bones or shells, which were tied to a stick and dipped in INK
MADE FROM KUKUI NUT. The point was then struck by a mallet and pounded into the skin. In fact, the “TAT, TAT, TAT” sound made by the mallet striking the stick is where the word “tattoo” comes from.
For those unsure about going under the needle, there is way to get a TEMPORARY TATTOO to mark your trip: The popular intricate body art called HENNA. This version is kid-friendly, lasts up to three weeks and can be chosen from a stock of selections or designed by you.
As for those with a desire for the most permanent of souvenirs, tattoo parlors are scattered throughout Maui. You choose from designs that run the gamut, from traditional sailor or Japanese images to Hawaiian-style or even portrait tattoos. Ask island residents or your concierge for the best places to “get inked” near you.
92. TRY AN OUT-OFTHE-BOX ACTIVITY
For a heart-pounding rush of adrenaline, consider one of these three activities. First up, there’s MAUI ESCAPE ROOMS (mauiescaperooms.com) in Lahaina. Look for hidden clues, think outside the box and solve puzzles against the race of the clock to solve the clues that can free you from your designated escape room. Work in teams of two to 10 people in themed escape rooms like Bank Heist or Prison Break and let your wit and teamwork take over. Maui Escape Rooms is an exciting entertainment experience for people of all ages and skill sets. For another breathtaking experience, look no further than
KAHOMA RANCH ATV TOURS in Lahaiana. Guests can rent their own all terrain vehicle (ATV) for a full-day of adventure. The tour includes off-roading on 600 acres of private cattle ranch land; winding dirt roads, stunning views, and chance encounters with wildlife such as horses or peacocks. Lastly, consider MAUI
GOLF & SPORTS PARK in Wailuku for an array of family-friendly activities where kids can do flips on their X-Treme Trampoline. MAUI ESCAPE ROOMS (808) 215-9215
