Maui Recommendations

heart rock maui muai

I’m so excited to be heading to Maui with Fred Baby in a few weeks! I’ve never been, but if Pinterest is any indication, I’m thrilled to be going. But I need your help. Do you have any recommendations?

So far I’ve been tipped off to the best doughnuts and seafood, and Pinterest has me thrilled to see rainbow eucalyptus trees and heart rock. I’m itching to see a volcano, and I’m hearing mixed reviews about the Road to Hana, but I’d love to hear your tips and advice. Also, the seven sacred pools…what’s your take? We’ll be there for a full week, so tell me…

What should we do/see/eat in Maui?

    Loved the watching sunrise at Haleakala, Mai Tai’s at Mamas Fish house and an awesome beer at Maui Brewing Co that they kept in Rum casks, cannot be had anywhere but there! Have fun, one of my favorite places on Earth! Also, the swap meets are great places to shop and eat, garlic noodles! Delish!

    Restaurants:
    Pacific’O http://pacificomaui.com/
    Five Palms http://www.5palmsrestaurant.com/
    Café O’Lei http://cafeoleirestaurants.com/
    Mama’s Fish House (I’d suggest eating here after you land at the airport since you are likely staying 30-40 mins away)

    To Do:
    Farm Tour and Luncheon: http://www.oofarm.com/ (this restaurant provides the produce for Pacific’O restaurant. On the tour you can pick vegetables that a chef then uses to prepare a delicious lunch)
    Ioa Valley State Park: http://www.hawaiistateparks.org/parks/maui/index.cfm?park_id=36
    Hike: http://www.yelp.com/biz/hoapili-trail-wailea#query:Hiking%20Trails
    Nice Jewelry Store: http://www.huttonsjewelers.com/ (The owners Kent and Kay are the sweetest. My family has been buying jewelry from them for years)
    Went to a swap meet and it had mostly knick knacks but the fresh juices and fruit were delicious

    Go to the supermarket and buy Roselani Ice Cream. It is homemade on the island and tastes divine. I recommend Kona Mud Pie and Coconut.

    Enjoy!!

    Maui, how fun! I love Maui!
    The Gazebo. It’s hidden and quite the gem. You’ll find some really authentic Hawaiian plates and the scenery is superb. Where else can you snorkel with families of sea turtles after your lunch?

    Merrimans. Romantic dinner date setting at sunset. My husband and I took one of our best photos there while we were celebrating our anniversary and they wrote something super cute in Hawaiian in raspberry sauce on our dessert plate.

    The hike above the 7 pools. A must at least once in your lifetime. Hiking through and above clouds, in a bamboo forest is kinda cool.

    And just for fun, a sunset catamaran ride is always a good idea. It’s fun because somehow from the angles passing by Lahaina, there are always rainbows in the mountains.
    Hope you have a blast wherever you go!
