Family Fun on Maui

Find adventure on Maui

Explore rainforests, trek by waterfalls, and use Resort Credit to get a taste of the island’s local flavor.

Tropical Maui evokes a breezy escape. But when you’re ready to do more than lounge by the water, Maui will reignite your spirit of adventure. From exploring jungle waterfalls to hiking rainforests, consider these experiences that will make your next Maui vacation even more memorable.

Take a Deep Dive

Divers and snorkelers won’t want to miss the waters of Molokini. Here, you can get up close with tropical fish within the arc of a dormant volcanic crater. The offshore islet — a protected seabird sanctuary — holds calm water and boasts underwater visibility of some 100 feet.

Check with your resort concierge to charter a trip.

Walk into the Water

No certified divers? No problem. Several outfitters operating from Makena Landing Park and Wailea Beach offer coastal Maui snorkeling with a twist by using an underwater scooter to propel you through the local reef. Just walk into the water, don the provided mask and snorkel, and hold on. The scooters do the work as you zoom pass yellow tang, triggerfish, turtles, moray eels, and colorful wrasses. It’s fun for the whole family.

For that fully submerged feeling (without getting wet), hop aboard a submarine, which departs daily from the wharf in Lahaina. You’ll dive 100 feet down to the sea floor where a three-masted replica whaling ship rests.

Visit a Waterfall or Ocean Vista

Jungle waterfalls are a staple feature on the island and can be found in parks and along the popular Road to Hāna. The ‘Ohe’o Gulch, or Seven Sacred Pools in Haleakalā National Park, leaves from the Kīpahulu Visitor Center along a half-mile trek on the Kūloa Point Trail. To see waterfalls, take the longer 4-mile Pipiwai trail. The Makahiku Overlook avails itself at a half-mile, where you’ll become immersed in a bamboo forest about a mile in. Follow the trail 2 miles in to see Waimoku Falls.

Where to Stay

As an Owner, you can enjoy a rejuvenating stay at three resorts on Maui in Lahaina, once the royal capital of Maui Loa. Nestled among the lush tropical foliage, The Westin Kā‘anapali Ocean Resort Villas and The Westin Kā‘anapali Ocean Resort Villas North put you in close proximity to snorkeling, white-sand beaches, and plenty of opportunity for adventure. Nearby at The Westin Nanea Ocean Villas, you’ll find palm-lined sunsets, pristine beaches, and fresh seafood to complement rainforest hikes and explorations that reveal more of the local culture.

Keep in Mind

Your Resort Credit carries over into 2022, so you can use your ownership to redeem credit at participating food and beverage outlets during your stay. Resort Credit is a great way to use small amounts of StarOptions® to cover expenses you might incur during your stay. Receive $100 in Resort Credit for every 9,000 StarOptions you spend, which may be able to be used for poolside snacks, romantic dinners, and more.
