Maui Activities

Stretch out on the best beach in the world
Isn’t this what you came for in the first place? The Hyatt Regency Maui has the largest section of the world renowned Ka’anapali Beach fronting their 40-acre property, but it goes on for miles!  A wonderful beach path lets you enjoy the whole thing.

Watch the sun set over the Pacific
What’s more glorious than a sunset on the beach!  Almost all areas of the resort, including the dining venues offer outstanding westerly views. Just relax as the sun goes down and let your soul soar as the setting sun shimmers on the water.

Visit the eclectic Lahaina Town
An eclectic mix of old & new, Lahaina is Maui’s most visited tourist attraction, and a uniquely Maui twist on “old-time-sea-town-meets-tourism.”

Play world-class golf
Maui has world-renowned golfing. Ka’anapali Golf courses adjoin the Hyatt Regency.  Kapalua, home of the PGA SBS (was Mercedes-Benz) Championship, is one of many world-class golf courses Maui offers.

Discover the Road to Hana
The Road to Hana is a legend. Miles of twists, turns, lush rainforest, scenic ocean vistas, waterfalls, flowers, and the unexpected at every turn. Drive it yourself or just enjoy the ride in a guided van tour (although if you are prone to carsickness, driving yourself is recommended).  See the “Seven Sacred Pools”.  Properly called ‘Ohe’o Gulch, this is a string of over seven pools and waterfalls starting many miles up the mountain (please note that swimming in the pools is usually not allowed). Part of the dramatic and rugged Kipahulu coastline past Hana, this is the most popular Road to Hana destination, although should not be the only goal on this trip - don't forget to enjoy the hikes to hidden waterfalls along the way!  Visit Lindbergh’s grave.  The famous aviator is buried 8 miles past Hana in Kipahulu, in a non-assuming, simple marked grave of his own design. Lindbergh’s grave can be found at Palapala Ho’omau Church under the shade of a Java plum tree.  Explore Wai’anapanapa State Park.  Wai’anapanapa State Park just outside of Hana offers sweeping panoramic views, sea arches, a black sand beach, fresh-water pool caves, and more. It’s a must for all Hana adventures.  Drive on from the Road to Hana.  If you’re an adventurer who appreciates “the road less traveled”, continue on past Hana and Kipahulu to Haleakala’s back side. It’s a wonderfully scenic continuation of the Hana trip as the road hugs the coast before gaining altitude above South Maui.  The Road to Hana is more about enjoying the journey than arriving at a destination - hike to hidden waterfalls and stop for Hawaiian snacks along the way!  If a long day of driving does not sound fun to you, skip this excursion and pick something more your style!

Visit Mount Haleakala
Watch the ethereal sunrise from Haleakala
Mark Twain called it “the sublimest spectacle I ever witnessed.” Words can not do this event justice, but sunrises as viewed from atop the 10,000′ mountain are typically nothing short of legendary.  Hike into the Martian landscape of Haleakala Crater.  The landscapes inside the crater are surreal. Often compared to a moonscape, with the ranges of reds it more resembles a Mars-scape. Whatever you call it, it is a sight to behold likely like nothing you’ve seen before.   Bike down Haleakala volcano.  There are no shortages of downhill biking companies on Maui. You can go with a group, or rent your own gear. If you go solo, you can start at the Haleakala Summit and either take the well-traveled paved Crater Road on down, or the exciting (and off-road) Skyline Trail.  Ride on a horse into the Haleakala Crater.  Going into the Crater on a horse will take regular folks a whole lot further in than most would otherwise see. The ride starts at the summit and takes Sliding Sands trail to the base of the crater 3.8 miles in.

Take a helicopter tour
Take an exhilarating ride to witness Maui from a bird’s-eye view. The quickest and most exciting way to tour through Maui’s many micro-climates – from the Martian landscape of Haleakala Crater to the verdant East Maui rainforest. Touring by helicopter allows you to see loads in just an hour or two, and to fly into otherwise inaccessible areas. There are four companies to choose from.

Go fishing for the big ones
Surrounded by all this ocean there are plenty of options for sport fishing. Most boats depart from Ma’alaea & Lahaina harbors.

Watch the whales
During our visit, Maui is graced with countless humpback whales birthing and mating. Whales can be observed from the Hyatt Regency or up-close on a whale-watch boat.  See information on how to book a discounted Sunset Cruise under the Maui Special Discounts page on this website.

Take a sunset cruise
Sail slowly along the majestic Maui coastline, enjoying whale sightings and a beautiful sunset. Tasty appetizers or dinner and bar service are available on many excursions.  The Hula Girl, Trilogy, and Gemini boats offer top notch experiences and are our favorites.  See information on how to book a discounted Sunset Cruise under the Maui Special Discounts page on this website.

Ho’okipa, Lookout
Ho’okipa Beach on the North Shore (five minutes past Paia) is a world-renowned surfing and wind-surfing destination. Ho’okipa Lookout is a parking lot on the edge of a cliff overlooking the action. During the winter months, when the North Shore surf is up, this is a great balcony for watching the best surfers in the world shred.

Ride a Zip Line
Ziplines are an incredibly fun way to see parts of Maui you’d never see. The best lines fly riders over rough terrain and verdant gulches, riders soar over a beautiful forest canopy.

Snorkel with sea turtles
The Hawaiian green sea turtle, a protected species, are becoming plentiful once again. You’re likely to see them snorkeling at Ka'anapali Beach and Kahekili Beach Park. (But just look, it is illegal to harass or touch.)

Snorkel in the Molokini Crater
Molokini Crater is a popular marine reserve sheltered inside a small volcanic crater island off of South Maui. Molokini is home to hundreds of species of fish and coral, some found nowhere else but Hawai’i. A snorkeling trip to Molokini Crater is usually unforgettable.

Learn to surf, paddleboard, windsurf, or kiteboard
If you never surfed, there are no shortage of folks dying to teach you how.

See ‘Iao Valley
A lush rainforest surrounded by towering verdant cliffs, ‘Iao Valley is the second wettest place in Hawai’i. Conveniently accessible from Central Maui, ‘Iao Valley State Park has paved walkways, informational signs, and beautiful sightseeing so that it is easily accessible to all.

Visit museums and learn about Maui’s history
Maui’s rich history can be uncovered at the many modest museums throughout the island. The Bailey House museum in Wailuku, the Sugar museum in Kahlui (Pu’unene), the Hana Cultural Center in Hana, the Hawaii Nature Center in ‘Iao and the Maui Ocean Center in Ma’alaia are the most popular.

Explore sea life in tide pools
Tide pools are their own ecosystem, and kids & nature lovers will find endless enjoyment exploring them. You’ll encounter these at most beaches if you look, but if you really wanna get serious, search on "Maui tide pools" to uncover our favorites.

See a blowhole
A blowhole is hole in the ground that connects to an underground, partially submerged ocean cave. The cave and opening are shaped in such a way that when the ocean rises or waves crash into it, a jet of water shoots into the air. Maui has two notable blowholes, including: Nakalele Blowhole in West Maui and Waianapanapa in Hana.

Drive a circle around West Maui
The northern side of West Maui has been called “West Maui’s Road to Hana”.  If winding narrow roads at the edges of cliffs make you nervous, you’d best skip this one – although driving clockwise puts you on the “body-shop side” of a miscalculation (rather than the “free-fall-plunge-o-death” the guy coming the other way will experience.) There are many stops along the way and the majority of this trip is largely for driving and sightseeing enjoyment.

Go shopping
There is shopping here for every taste and style – from t-shirts to Versace, from skimpy bikinis to Rolex watches. If shopping is your bag, Maui won’t leave you wanting for place to break out the plastic!

Explore Maui’s longest lava tube
A cool change of pace from the typical Road to Hana trip – you can explore a portion of the largest lava tube (cave) in Maui. Many interesting features making it a must-see for those interested in caves and geology. Kids also absolutely love it!
