First off, Maui is a great family friendly travel destination. The flight is a little long, but nothing that an ipad, snacks and crafts can’t handle. We have been going now for a few years and each year we add in a new fun adventure. This year we added in a few more adventures just for you all!


@TwinFallsMaui was a major highlight! Easy walk to the first set of pools and mini-waterfalls. I suggest that you keep walking another 20min past the first pools to get to the good one you see in the photo. Kids loved swimming under a real waterfall! These falls can be found on the drive to Hanna.

@oldlahianaluau is a great authentic luau on Maui. You get to see them dig up the pig, learn to hula and enjoy great food. Service is amazing too!

@Mauizipline was a treat for all ages. We had littles and the young at heart in our group. All were able to make the climb and enjoy the rides with a view. Great stop for families.

Cliff diving in front of the @montagekapalua was a major highlight. They had high rocks and low ones to choose from. The kids and I opted for the low ones, but my husband showed us all up by jumping off the top one. This does include a little walk down from the Montage on gravel, but we all managed to do it in our flip flops.

@teralani sailing adventure was just perfect. You board this beautiful catamaran and motor down to Honokahua Bay. They supply all of the snorkel equipment and even provide a basic snorkel lesson. We saw all sorts of amazing fish and even got to swim with a turtle. They provide a sandwich lunch and open bar for your sail back.


Kid Friendly Restaurants (Kanapali/Lahiana area):

Hula Grill
MonkeyPod Kitchen

Slappy Pancakes 

Adult Restaurant:

Merrimans has the best view and is a must stop without kids. If your hotel has a parent’s night out program, definitely make a stop here. Even if you can only stop by for a cocktail, it’s worth it! I call the hotel ahead of time and book our parent’s night out before arriving to Maui.

NOTE – I highly suggest booking all activities and dinner reservations before you leave for your trip. I book them all at least 2 months before, to ensure we get the days and times that work best for our family.

Safe Travels!
