Whether it’s your honeymoon or your twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, Maui is one of the most romantic of the Hawaiian islands. Home to beautiful beaches, lush green gardens, and many luxury resorts, Maui is best experienced through a balance of bucket-list activities and lazy sunbathing. For the best ways to make the most of your time together, check out these super romantic things to do on Maui.
#1 – Go to a spectacular evening luau
What romantic Hawaiian vacation is complete without a luau? Enjoy delicious authentic Hawaiian cuisine alongside an evening show of dance and fire acrobatics. This luau’s ocean-front location leaves nothing to be desired—nor do the complimentary cocktails.
#2 – Go on a romantic sunset cruise
A romantic Maui vacation wouldn’t be complete without that picturesque sunset cruise! Sail Maui offers an exclusive evening champagne sail along the West Coast of Maui. Enjoy some local craft brews or a Mai Tai while you watch the sky burst into orange and crimson. Book dinner in Lahaina after and make a night of it.
#3 – Spend the day on the Road to Hana
With dozens of lookouts, bridges, hikes, and waterfalls, the Hana Highway just might be the highlight of your vacation. Do the whole highway in a day, including important stop offs and lookouts, with this great tour company. Make sure to spend some extra time at Pailoa Bay black-sand beach and don’t forget to take a photo at picturesque Wailua Falls. These tours are private so you and your partner can go at your own pace.
#4 – Go snorkeling at the Molokini crater
Is there anything more romantic than a secluded Hawaiian island crater, home to a rich marine preserve of tropical fish? Head to Molokini crater on this luxury sail cruise and see for yourself. Explore this extinct volcano, witnessing rare tropical birds, slippery subterranean eels, and even the odd humpback whale.
#5 – Explore Maui’s best beer and wine crafters
Taste Maui’s best beer, wine, and rum on this Ultimate Craft Tour. It’s a full-day tour from 8am until just before dinnertime and includes lots of samples and—don’t worry—some hearty snacks to offset the booze.
#6 – Explore Makena on a guided kayak tour
Take a kayaking tour of one of the best beaches on Maui, the golden Makena Beach. This beach is protected by two lava walls, which is super convenient for beginner kayakers. Paddle out to the reefs to see green sea turtles and Hawaiian spinner dolphins and then jump in the water to explore the underwater life. If you’re lucky you might even see a monk seal! You have a choice of spending three or four hours in these calm waters.
#7 – Take a couples’ surf lesson at Ukumehame Beach Park
Make the most of your time together by trying new and exciting things. A surfing lesson is just exciting enough without being too bold, so grab your partner and head to the Ukumehame Beach Park. This is one of the best places to learn how to surf on Maui and Maui Surfer Girls are one of the few schools permitted to teach here. They even offer a couples surfing package, which includes bubbly after your lesson!
#8 – Take a guided hiking tour of Maui
It doesn’t matter if you’re into hiking or not, you’ll love a guided tour of Maui’s mountain trails. See waterfalls, blackened inactive lava flows, exotic vegetation, and so much more. This is a private tour so you set the pace.
#9 – Learn how to kiteboard on Maui’s famous Kitebeach
What trip to Maui would be complete without visiting the famous Kitebeach? Get in the water with the best of them with Surf Club Maui. After you successfully complete your first kiteboarding lesson, spend the rest of the day exploring Maui’s picturesque North Shore.
#10 – Hit the trails on this breathtaking ATV tour
Sometimes the best bonding experiences are about getting outside your comfort zone.
