HIKE MAUI From 10-foot cannonball jumps into sacred pools to hiking along the rushing waterfalls of Hana to the desert-like terrain of Mt. Haleakala, Hike Maui has the key to the island’s most exhilarating trail adventures. Various tours and packages cater to different ages and fitness levels. hikemaui.com. 808.879.5270. HOOKIPA BEACH During winter months, powerful surges of surf roll in, earning Hookipa its status as the windsurfing mecca of the world. The powdery sand beach is long and narrow, and an exposed reef runs along the length of the shorebreak where green sea turtles are often spotted. Even on average surf days, strong winds, currents and shallow reef make swimming here a challenge, but not impossible, given the tidepools and protected wading areas. On the Pavilions side, small areas of sandy-bottom ocean also offer sheltered swimming. For watching surfers and the surf, Hookipa Lookout provides optimum viewing. Mile Marker #9 Hana Hwy., Paia. 808.572.8122. KAHOMA RANCH What better way to end your vroom-vroom roaring dune buggy rides, while taking in spectacular scenic views of West Maui mountains and landscape, than with a swoosh and kerplunk dunk into the valley’s freshwater reservoir. From children to adults (pretending to be children), visitors of all ages agree that the culmination on the Kahoma Ranch’s water slides makes for an experience like no other. kahomaranch.com. 808.667.1978. KULA COUNTRY FARMS MAUI Locals flow to Kula Country Farms to comb through rows and rows of the ripened red berries (during the spring/summer) and pumpkin patch (during the winter months). Keiki can partake in fun activities in the garden, such as minigolf and bocce ball. The farm stand also offers fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the season for everyone to enjoy. kulacountryfarmsmaui.com 808.878.8381. RAPPEL MAUI With no previous experience necessary, rappel through 30-foot waterfalls and tropical cliffs where Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster “Jurassic Park” was filmed. rappelmaui.com. 808.445.6407. SEVEN SACRED POOLS A series of cascading waterfalls and tranquil pools flow through the O’heo Gulch. Above the Seven Sacred Pools and surrounded by verdant vegetation, the Pipiwai Trail is a 4-mile roundtrip hike that ascends 650 feet. The trail can be challenging at times, due to its sometimes-steep terrain. It’s well worth the trip as many people consider it the best hike on the island. nps.gov/hale/ planyourvisit/kipahulu.htm.
