Maui: part of the Hawaiian island chain in the mid-Pacific. The diverse geography and year-round sunshine makes it a popular travel destination.
Snorkel, surf or paddle board in the warm ocean along pristine sandy beaches all across the island. Hike and bike in the Haleakala National Park, where, at the 10000 feet summit, you can see forever on a clear day. Sometimes, puffy white clouds obscure the view. Visit the Lahaina Jodo Mission, where you can see a 12 foot high Buddha statue along with a beautiful Buddhist temple and a 90 foot tall pagoda. All this in a gorgeous garden setting!! How about a stop at the Kula Botanical Garden! This 6 acre horticultural paradise in the Upcountry has some of the worlds most beautiful flowers. While there, I even spotted some chameleons out for there walk. Explore the Maui Aquarium and marvel at the many different exhibits, especially the sea turtles.
And don’t forget to enjoy an ice-cold beer at the Hula Grill in Ka’anapali. It right by the beach, and if you sit outside, you can dig your toes in the sand!!
Did I say “Heavenly Paradise”? I believe it is!
Mahalo for coming along, Sabine
