Are you traveling to Maui and looking to add some free, yet amazing activities to your vacation itinerary? Look no further than these four must-stop places to visit that come highly recommended by the team at Little Hawaii Rent A Car. Reserve your Mini Cooper rental with us and get ready for a day or two of exploring the beautiful island of Maui.
1. Road to Hana
The Road to Hana is a scenic highway that twists and turns along the eastern coastline of Maui. It’s an absolutely gorgeous drive as you move along the dense, green rainforest and past plunging waterfalls. Hop in your Mini Cooper rental and spend the day enjoying the incredible scenery. You can even make it an all-day affair by stopping at the various scenic lookouts.
2. Waianapanapa State Park
While “Waianapanapa” means “glistening waters” in Hawaiian, visitors to this state park come for its jet-black sands. The volcanic sediment shoreline is absolutely exquisite against the bright blue waves of the ocean and the thick, lush greenery of the jungle. Take the time to hike the park’s main trail and you’ll come across freshwater caves with calming pools in which you can swim. There are also burial grounds, sea stacks, and many more natural phenomena lining this hiking trail.
3. Kapalua Coastal Trail
The Kapalua Coastal Trail is a paved and almost completely flat walking trail, making it easy, relaxing, and kid-friendly. Take your sports and convertible car rental to this picturesque pathway, where you can catch dazzling views of Kapalua Bay, Namalu Bay, Oneloa Bay, and Honokahua Bay. Explore the many rock formations, take in gorgeous sunset views, and spot some whales during whale-watching season (December to March).
4. Banyan Tree Park
In the town of Lahaina, on Maui’s northwest coast, lies a tiny park with a huge local attraction — one of the largest banyan trees in the country. This particular banyan tree was brought to the island from India in 1873. It’s more than 60 feet high and features plenty of shade for those who enjoy picnicking at this small but one-of-a-kind attraction.
