Hidden Maui Beaches

Maui’s Best Beaches

Today we get a question from Perry who asks about what beaches shouldn’t be missed while vacationing on Maui. Today we share some of our favorites. On the east side of the island is Waianapanapa State Park which has an amazing black sand beach. You’ll find a red sand beach there as well which you get to via a private hike behind the Hotel Hana. You’ll also find Koki Beach behind the property. Also, just past Hana town about a mile is Hamoa beach. Another favorite beach of ours is Mekena beach on the south side of the island.

A Big Mahalo to our friend Marilyn for helping us with this question! Marilyn is the owner with her husband of Maui Country Farm Tours and we highly recommend you check them out if you’re headed to Maui. You’ll experience the beautiful agriculture of the Magic Isle on their tours which they can customize especially to suit your needs.

Cancelling your Hawaii Vacation

Ever wonder what your options are if one person in your trip cancels? That’s a question one of our Facebook friends had which we address on today’s show. For the most part there’s very little you can do with regard to your airfare if someone cancels. Airline tickets are mostly nonrefundable and nontransferable. However if you book tours or have to change the name for your rental car that’s never an issue. Today we discussed this and talk about some suggestions if situation like that comes up for you before traveling to Hawaii.

Getting the most Value out of your Vacation.

Very often people struggle with how many nights they should stay here in the islands. We usually suggest a minimum of four nights per island. The typical Hawaii vacation is seven days. If you’re traveling from the East Coast it makes no sense to come here for only three or four nights, the reality is if you do that you will be spending most of your time flying to and from Hawaii. We offer some tips and suggestions and our recommendations for how to get the most value out of your Hawaii vacations.
