to do on Maui
While you may not be able to charge waves at Jaws or zipline alongside the grandkids, Maui still offers great activities for everyone. Here are the Top 10 Senior Activities on Maui.
MauiWine is located on 23 acres of historical property situated within the Ulupalakua Ranch property. You will find this beautiful winery amongst gorgeous gardens, extraordinary trees and scattered aged structures. Some even date back to the late 1800’s.
One of the most romantic, relaxing and beautiful things you can do on Maui is enjoying the island from the water. Hop aboard one of our Sunset Dinner and Cocktail Cruises and enjoy fresh food, an open bar and live Hawaiian music.
Iao Valley is a 4,000-acre state park steeped in rich historical significance and lush beauty of the West Maui Mountains. This is one of the most beautiful areas of the island and it’s located only a short drive from Central Maui, making for the perfect day trip to enjoy the serenity and peaceful nature of Maui.
Far from the packed, auditorium-style magic shows that you’d expect to find in Las Vegas, Warren & Annabelle’s Magic Dinner Show is an intimate, highly entertaining indoor attraction on Front Street in Lahaina. It’s perfect for adults looking for a unique way to spend an evening on Maui.
If you’re not quite up for scuba diving or snorkeling but still want to enjoy the wonders of the Pacific Ocean, we’ve got the perfect solution! Take a short boat ride from Lahaina Harbor to the site of Maui’s Atlantis Submarine, a 48-passenger submarine that takes guests on a tour of life beneath the surface, including schools of tropical fish, a sunken Carthaginian replica of a 19th century supply vessel and artificial reef. We even saw scuba divers on the wreck who waved a warm aloha!
One of the most visually remarkable places on Maui is Haleakala, a 10,000-foot volcano with gorgeous views of the sunrise and sunset. While you can certainly drive to the summit yourself, Haleakala Bike Company offers great guided van tours, including narration by a Hawaiian cultural specialist, rain and weather gear, and optional transportation from your hotel. The tour is a perfect way to experience Upcountry Maui’s cowboy town of Makawao and community of Kula, with a stop in the historic, hippie-surfer town of Paia.
You may think “been there, done that”, but does sipping a fruity cocktail by the pool in Hawaiian paradise ever really get old? Exactly. Grab your slippahs and sunblock and head down to your resort pool for a well-deserved, relaxing day in the sun.
Maui Ocean Vodka Farm & Distillery is located on the slopes of Haleakala crater in lower Kula. The surroundings at this spectacular 80-acre Upcountry location are absolutely stunning. Make sure to bring your camera! With the majestic Haleakala as your backdrop and unobstructed ocean views that stretch out to meet the West Maui Mountains below, the photo opts are countless.
No visit to Maui’s Upcountry is complete without dinner at Hali’imaile General Store. Founded in 1988, the General Store is Chef Bev Gannon’s most acclaimed restaurant.
