Hawaii has been at the top of my bucket list for as long as I can remember. So when we turned that dream into a reality I was beyond ecstatic! However, I never could have imagined what a life changing place it would be! I can’t tell you how happy we were with our choice of island. Maui was nothing short of magical. Here are five photos to inspire you to visit Maui!
We snorkeled with sea turtles, froze our tails off on the top of a volcano, beach hopped around the island, and fell more in love with life & each other during those short ten days. Maui is the place we talk about more often than not and dream about owning our own sliver of paradise there. It was that good. Not so sure? See more below.
Visiting Lahaina was one of our favorite experiences in Maui. The views of the neighboring island of Lanai, great restaurants, shopping, and more had us return here again and again during our 10 days on the island.
Kihei was also an area we loved. The views, the beaches, and snorkeling were top notch!
This banyan tree in Lahaina was incredible! It was planted in the 1800s, and still growing today. This is ONE tree! It is truly God’s art!
We didn’t spend much time on the South side of the island, but we did make it a point to “beach hop” the area one day. This was our favorite of the views that day. Surfers, famed snorkeling spot, Molokini Crater, and great weather made for dreamy photos!
Experiencing the sunrise at Haleakala was hands down one of my favorite experiences of the trip! It was rough getting up at 3am, but seeing the world come to life was worth it. The clouds above the mountains and sea were breathtaking. If you add this to your itinerary, be sure to pack warm clothes. It is COLD up there!
I hope these five photos inspire you to visit Maui. It is truly a magic place that we dream of returning to.
