From the fields of upcountry Maui to the island’s sparkling shores and the depths of Molokini Crater, Maui is a couple’s paradise. Whether you cruise around the island with the top down, passing waterfalls and beaches, or stop in at a farm gate for a closer look at Maui’s famous fresh produce, this island will enchant you with its tropical beauty and friendly character.

Day one: Cruise the Road to Hāna

Hire a car and drive the legendary Road to Hāna. There are plenty of opportunities to stop and enjoy the views, so get an early start and take your time to enjoy the journey with 620 curves and 59 bridges,this winding route wraps around the East Coast of the island and bypasses flourishing rainforests, hidden waterfalls and plunging pools some of which can be accessed by walking trails.  Upon arrival in the sleepy village of Hāna, swim and sunbathe at Hāna Beach Park or Hāmoa Beach, and take a peek inside the historic St. Sophia’s Church.

Day two: Sunrise over moonscape

Maui is known for its lush greenery but there’s one place that is a complete contrast - the extinct volcano, Haleakalā. Drive to the summit of this natural wonder and see an otherworldly moonscape. There’s a small entry fee to get into Haleakalā National Park and it takes about two hours to reach the summit so allow enough time to get in and out before the park shuts. For early birds, sunrise viewing from the summit is a popular option so make sure you make a booking on the Park’s website to avoid disappointment.

Day three: Farm-to-table feast

Upcountry Maui is home to several flourishing farms and plantations because of the rich, volcanic soil. Book into a tour at ʻŌʻō farm for an in-depth look at Maui’s upcountry agriculture. Explore the farm, and see citrus groves, coffee plantations and gardens bursting with colorful vegetables, and then sit down for a sumptuous lunch made with the farm’s seasonal produce. Swing by Ocean Organic Vodka for a tasting, and drop into Aliʻi Kula Lavender Farm stroll through the fragrant lavender fields.

Day four: Resort-side R&R

Once you have reached your accommodation in West Maui, take a break from driving and sightseeing and enjoy the luxurious surrounds of your resort. Kick back beside the pool with a cocktail, or wander barefoot down to white sands of Kanaapali Beach or Wailea Bay for a refreshing dip in the crystal clear water. You might even spot a honu (Hawaiian green sea turtle).

Day five: Lūʻau dreaming

No visit to the Hawaiian Islands is complete without a night out at a lūʻau. Choose from any of the local Lāhainā lūʻau for a cultural evening of eating, drinking and entertainment. With a lei greeting and a buffet featuring Hawaiian fare such as pork cooked in an underground oven, lūʻau guests also get to try culturally significant dishes. This is topped off with a music and hula performance that will leave your hips swinging and your imagination buzzing with the colorful history and folklore of the Hawaiian Islands.
