Maui’s breathtaking natural beauty, resorts, and an assortment of tourist attractions make it a must destination to unwind or for adventure.

There is so much to explore and enjoy in Maui that one trip is not enough, but it’s a start.

The best way to explore the island to your enjoyment is to have a taste of everything, sun, beach and the ocean in one day, trekking the different national parks and forest reserve for one or two days and an unforgettable day trip to Hana.

  • Depending on the location of your accommodations you can explore the nearest beach in the area upon arrival. Maui’s 30-mile stretch of beaches offers you soft golden, red and black sand, and of course warm waters. Here are some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, perfect for swimming, picnics, and naps in the afternoon, snorkeling and calming strolls as the sun sets. You have a choice of Makena Beach State Park, Palauea, Oneuli and Charlie Young Beach just to name a few.
  • After a good long rest on the first day set yourself up for the adventure of a lifetime trekking the beautiful rainforest and national parks. On top of the list is Haleakala National Park. Prepare yourself for the overwhelming beauty of the summit of Haleakala volcano and its surrounding sacred landscapes with astonishing colors of red, green and dark ash. Soak into a meditative state these landscapes evoke. Other treks and hikes not to be overlooked are Lahaina Pali West trail (a local favorite) - ocean view and Waihe’e Ridge Trail - forest reserve.
  • Enjoy one whole day in Hana - East of Maui, traveling to Hana is as enjoyable as the destination. For this, a guide is a must so you can sit back, relax and soak in the winding Hana highway going to the quaint town almost untouched by time. Explore it on foot, gather picnic goodies and spend lunch and the afternoon at Hana Bay. There’s so much to see in Hana. It’s best to have an early start.
  • Last day and night at Maui, spend it as you wish, either exploring another mountain-side or by the beach, swimming, eating, napping and strolling. Come night time, explore Maui after dark, its bars with live music and entertainment. Enjoy local entertainment, and the different mixes of music Maui’s restaurants and bars offer.

Have a taste of everything Maui offers, the sun, soft sand beaches, beautiful mountains and ocean views, waterfalls and quaint towns. For sure, you’ll be planning your next trip to the island in no time.

Go Local

Everything you use for your garden, not just the plants, should be local. 

Going local helps the local environment. It maintains the ecosystem, and it prevents potential disasters that can occur when you begin introducing non-native materials and organisms.

Beyond that, going local is going for the community, too. Going local strengthens the community and the community’s ties to the environment. 

It teaches culture, and it makes the local culture a more important aspect of everyday life.

Minimal Water and Energy

Build a landscape that requires minimal water and energy consumption.

There are a few options for this, like xeriscaping and zeroscaping, which work exceptionally well.

These use specific types of plants as well as a particular design to reduce water consumption.

You also incorporate more of other materials, like rock and wood that require no water.

For your lighting system, if you use one, keep it efficient.

Energy efficiency is the top priority here. Something that lasts a long time and requires minimal energy will help immensely.

You can do this while still having the same look and effect you want out of a lighting system.

Irrigation System

If you use an irrigation system, you want to make sure that it works correctly, is efficient, and is high quality. 

Have a professional come in to look through your irrigation system and make sure that you have a good one installed.

Problems with an irrigation system can occur at any time without you realizing it.
