Leaving Maui

My Maui adventures have come to an end and I’m back in snowy, cold Baltimore- for now. I wanted to share a few more of my Maui photos, places not-to-miss, and my overall thoughts on the 8 day trip.

The beach right across the street from my cottage/hotel, Nona Lani Cottages, was fairly small but perfect for a non-crowded walk on the beach at sunset and a little sun bathing.

Makena Beach State Park was my favorite beach to visit. The sand was soft and waves were perfect for jumping. There were a few boogie boarders to watch if my paperback got boring but best of all was that you could see whale spouts off in the distance.

Past Makena Beach State Park, you will eventually end up on a gravel road to La Perouse Bay– a great place for snorkeling and hiking. It is a little difficult to get to and parking is sparse but it is an adventure!

Maluaka Beach was the beach my whale watching tour left from but I also hung out there one afternoon and did some snorkeling. It is turtle-watching central here.

My favorite meal of the whole trip was the tuna poke at South Maui Fish Company. I came back for Round 2 on my last day on Maui before heading to the airport.

Outdoor seating with a friendly staff and some awesome poke. The fish tacos looked and smelled amazing too.

Just about every morning in Maui I went to the Java Cafe in Kihei for a gigantic coffee and some blogging time. I love Kona coffee so much. So I drank as much of it as I could Smile

I’m doing Dry January this year again so I never sampled any of the fine Maui Brewing Company libations offered on the island. Maybe next time!

Last year I went to Kauai and this year Maui. Hopefully the airlines have another good sale for the beginning of 2018 so I can visit the Big Island or return to Oahu, since it has been  10 years since I’ve been there! Maui was such a good trip, a bit expensive (other than the cheap flight) but the beaches were amazing as was the food and friendly islanders/other vacationers.

Reader Question: What travel plans have you made for the year so far?
