How to Spend 24 Hours in Maui

Being the second-largest Hawaiian island stretching across little less than 730 square miles, Maui throws a myriad of opportunities for you to feel young and alive, no matter how many times you have visited it. For many, a stay in this serene island that has a laid-back vibe and striking beaches may never feel long enough. However, if you are planning to stay in Maui for only 24 hours, here’s how you can make the most of it:

Experience sunrise over Haleakala Crater

You probably haven’t heard of it, but it’s said that all the Hawaiian islands were formed from volcanic eruptions dating back millions of years except Maui, which is believed to have resulted from the overlapping of two volcanoes. Be sure to have a bird’s eye view of it from 10,000 ft above sea level while experiencing the sunrise over the Pacific Ocean after summiting the top of Haleakala Crater.

Paddle an outrigger canoe

Once you have witnessed the mesmerizing beauty of Maui from the top of Haleakala, return to the sea level to try your hands on the state sport of Hawaii - outrigger canoe racing. Many local agencies provide beginner courses in this cultural experience, which involves ocean exploration and gentle exercise. On the tour, you may encounter the entire Maui’s aquatic life, from whale to sea turtle, and many other creatures. Also, rowing chant sing-a-longs are the highlight of these tours.

Stay in an oceanfront condo

Visiting Maui and staying in a hotel is the same as visiting a bar to have a glass of juice. When you plan your overnight stay in Maui, consider booking an oceanfront condo rental in Kihei to enjoy serene sea views right after you wake up. For most travelers, these condos alone become a reason for their retreat to the island.

Enjoy a cup of Kona coffee

No trip to Maui can ever be called complete without a cuppa coffee prepared from locally-brewed world's most coveted beans - Kona. Produced in the Kona district, it’s considered one of the most exquisite and fragrant coffees on Earth. To have a taste of this world-famous appetizing coffee, visit one of Maui's neighborhood cafés that offer a cup of 100% Kona coffee and start your day right off. Locals suggest visiting Grandma's Coffee House for the taste you look for in coffee.
