Maui is undoubtedly one of the most visited and beautiful Hawaiian islands. It’s rustic and luxurious all at once and it should be on everyone’s travel bucket list. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t so kind to us during our visit to this incredible island, so we didn’t get to experience even half of the sites and activities that we had planned to. That said, the itinerary you’ll find in this blog is what our day would have looked like had it not rained for the majority of our stay. We did get to experience a few of the things on the itinerary and can recommend them first hand. The rest are recommendations that came to us from other travelers that have visited the island and from our extensive research while planning this trip. We hope this itinerary helps in your planning and even more, we hope that you have incredible weather! Lol
