Your day-by-day itinerary
Arrival Maui, Hawaii
It’s time to say “aloha” to Hawaii, and Maui is the perfect welcome to this exotic archipelago of volcanoes, tropical rainforest and hula dancers. From the airport, you’ll drive to the coastal town of Lahaina, near Ka’anapali Beach, passing several palm tree lined beaches on the way. You’ll stay in an atmospheric Hawaiian inn, which fits in well with the tropical feeling that you’d expect from Maui. The hotel has a swimming pool and you can also be at the beach or the bars and shops of Front Street in just a few minutes, marvelling at the historic houses, lighthouse and the ruins of a fortress along the way.
Luau and free time
Today starts with a breakfast of pancakes and fresh fruit in the tropical gardens of your hotel, between palm and banana trees. The rest of the day you are free to enjoy the pool and beach, choosing to snorkel, sunbathe, surf or stand-up paddleboarding. Be sure to save some energy for tonight though, because in the evening the Hawaiian party, the “luau”, starts. With a fresh flower garland around you, you will be treated to music, traditional dishes, such as lau lau pork and poké bowl, a fire show and of course hula dance. Through songs and stories you will be taken into the traditions of Hawaii and become part of the “ohana”, the family.
After your party last night, you’ll probably want to sleep in before deciding what you do with the rest of the day. You can easily reach other beaches, such as Ka’anapali by car or jump on a catamaran and with a drink in hand, you’ll sail past the green rocky coastline of Maui. From December to April you can also take a whale watching tour in a zodiac watching humpback whales, they like to stay in shallow water to protect their young so are easily spotted from the boat. Whatever you decide for, you’ll be sure to immerse yourself in the laid-back island life.
Whether you’re on to your next adventure in Hawaii or perhaps heading back home, you’ll drive to the airport for your next flight. Plan enough time for the ride, as the roads often have only one lane and are regularly crossed by surfers who walk to the beach with a relaxed gait, their arms full of surf gear.
