7 Best things to do in Maui
The 7 best things to do in Maui
1. Snorkel Molokini Crater
2. Road to Hana
3. The OTHER side of the road to Hana
4. Haleakala Sunrise
5. Big Beach
6. Attend a Luau
7. Visit Paia town
Paia is a great place to visit on your last day on Maui since it’s close to the airport in Kahului. Although Paia is considered the start of the Road to Hana, I recommend a separate visit since there is so much to see on the Hana Highway.
Paia is a cute little town with lots of shops. It can be a little bit difficult to find parking, but I love Paia and find it even more laid back than the rest of the island.
While in Paia, check out Baldwin Beach Park, which happens to be one of our favorite beaches on Maui! It seems to be a beach where lots of locals hang out, and it overcrowded as some of the other beaches.
Baldwin beach park has amazingly clear water.
