Before I set out, I have read other travel guides about Maui which talk about sailing between lush green islands, stopping of at great beaches to snorkel, and the now more well known secret road trip to Hana but before I did this trip I didn't understand what I was in for from the simple black and white text of the reviews I had read. And that's why I made this review. I wanted to know what it was like to walk the red sand for myself.
If you are wondering about the secret road trip to Hana, the Go Hawaii even make a video of it. This trip takes you around the winding Hana Highway, atop the high cliffs, through lots of swimming locations, water falls and beaches. And if you do it right, it brings you safely back. Then there was the encounter with worlds largest dormant volcano.
For generations Maui has been explored by first time and return visitors alike with excitement and verve in anticipation of that first encounter with a sea turtle, or spot a whale or dolphin live at sea. I wanted to find out for myself the attraction of this almost mythical destination. And do I need to know how to handle monster waves if I simply want to go for a swim?
Well when should I go? Chance has it that the weather is pretty well perfect any time of the year. Sure the dry season from April to October seems like a good choice but I actually like the green and drama a tropical wet season can bring. As I also like attention for my dollar I also choose the season with a few less guests around. When I do my research I find that I can put together an all inclusive Hawaii vacation package for my family for much less between Labor Day and Thanksgiving. Then this travel guide to Maui will not have to compete with all the other families who visit in the Summertime.
