Top Five Awesome Things to Do in Maui for Under $10
Most travelers assume that they have to spend big in order to enjoy their time in Maui, but that just isn’t true. As long as you can afford the flight here, you can find plenty to do on a budget. In fact, we’ve created a list of five fun and exciting things you can do for less than $10! Save a little money on these outings so you can spoil yourself later with a luxury dinner, a fun luau, or a trip to an amazing spa.
1. Experience the Serenity of Maui Beaches
Maui’s number one attraction is our gorgeous beaches filled with powder soft sand and warm ocean waves. Guess what? Our beaches are free! Grab your towels, your sunscreen, and a picnic lunch and enjoy a day in paradise without spending a dime. Some Maui beaches we recommend are: Keawakapu, Ulua Beach, Black Rock in Kaanapali Beach, and Ho’okipa Beach Park.
2. Dive Under for Incredible Snorkeling
Just beneath the surface of our sapphire waters, you’ll find a metropolis of life. Rent a snorkel for less than $5 (you’ll find rental areas around every major beach), and you’ll get to enjoy hours of wonderment and delight. Look out for manta rays, parrotfish, moray eels, yellow tang, sea turtles and more. You’ll also see some gorgeous coral!
3. Maui’s Stop and Go Meals
While you’re at the beach you may see some local food trucks hanging out nearby. These restaurants on wheels offer delicious foods at incredibly affordable costs. Who needs restaurant seating when you can eat surrounded by mountains and ocean vistas? In Maui, you can find food trucks offering Hawaiian food, BBQ, Mexican, gourmet grilled cheese, and many different types of ethnic cuisine.
4. World Class Maui’s Best Whale Watching
You don’t need to fork over your money for a whale watching tour. If you plan to visit Maui between December and May, you will likely be able to see humpback whales from the beach. If you have a pair of binoculars at home, throw them into your suitcase so you can get a better look. Humpback whales swim all the way from Alaska to Hawaii every year to birth their calves in our safe and temperate waters. If you are patient, you can usually catch spouts and tail flips from Kaanapali Beach, Makena Beach Park, North Kihei Beach, and the Papawai Scenic Lookout.
5. Visit the Peace of Upcountry Lavender Farms
On the slopes of Haleakala Volcano, you’ll find the magical Ali’i Kula Lavender Farm. This amazing garden created by Horticultural Master Ali’i Chang includes 45 varieties of lavender plants and around 55,000 lavender plants altogether. Take a tour of the farm for just $4, and you’ll get to enjoy 10 acres of unique plants growing amidst Buddha statues and charming gazebos. The views from the farm are also incredibly impressive.
Another great way to save money on your trip to Maui is to ignore all the expensive hotel rooms and resorts. Instead, get privacy, go luxury or fall into an amazing deal by renting a vacation condo from Ali’i Resorts. We offer the best seasonal prices and high quality rentals in south Maui you can find.
