Before the Waihee Ridge Trail is misted with dreamy cotton-like clouds, head out early to the 2,563-foot peak and get a breathtaking view of Wailuku, the slopes of Kahakuloa, Makamaka‘ole Falls and Mount ‘Eke. Bring a rain-resistant jacket, bottles of water and a picnic lunch to enjoy at the end of the trail.
A trip to the islands would not be complete without a refreshing dip in the ocean. Maui’s shorelines are no exception. Located in Kapalua, Oneloa beach features a quiet stretch of jewel-toned waters that skim the fine grains of powdery sand. Don’t forget to pack sunscreen as you may end up basking all day long.
The term “local” may be difficult to define other than noticing the busy lines and wait times at a popular eatery. A place that attracts both visitors and regulars alike is none other than Da Kitchen Cafe in Kahului. It’s authentic “local” cuisine at a great price. Must-tries include the sumo plate and fried musubi.
