It's hard to have enough of their poi and other Hawaiian delicacies.

3 Places to See Turtles and Dolphins Close to Vacation Rentals in Maui
There are 3 pods in Maui. The most common species are the spinner dolphins, spotted dolphins, and the Pacific bottlenose dolphins. For an up-close encounter (50 yards), take a boat ride. Turtles are also commonplace, especially Hawaiian green turtles, and here's where to find them:
1. Punalu'u Beach Park
Turtles love basking on this black sand beach. While the ocean is a little rough for snorkeling, walking on the shore (wearing swimming shoes is a good idea) or joining the turtles for a sun bath can be fun.
2. Lāhainā and Lāna‘i
Watch hundreds of spinner dolphins (Stenella longirostris) popularly known for their acrobatic spinning, aerial flips, and leap antics. You'll also find them on the West Maui coastline, and occasionally, at Honolua Bay.

The Best Activities For Families in Maui
Beach Sports in Maui
West and South Maui have the best selection of beaches and equipment rentals for various water sports. With activities such as surfing, stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), and snorkeling, there's a number of companies that offer guided lessons and excursions. Visitors can also rent the equipment they need and head off on their own independent adventure.
Learn About the Island
Nurture your children's minds with an appreciation for the outdoors at the Maui Ocean Center, a walk around the dormant volcano at the Mars-like Haleakalā National Park, or a submarine tour at Laihana.
Music, language, dance, and food have just as much significance in Hawaiian culture as the natural surroundings do. Visit the Old Lahaina Luau, located in the heart of the historic island town, for a lesson in traditional Hawaiian culture and customs.
Vacations in Maui With Babies
With perfect weather all year round, a family-oriented culture, and plenty of activities for all ages, Maui is a great choice for a vacation with your children and babies. Many conveniences such as car seats, strollers and cots/cribs are readily available to use at accommodations and public areas such as restaurants, or to hire out from rental companies for the duration of your trip.
The choice of a condo or apartment with multiple rooms means plenty of space for friends and family to join in, allowing everyone to save on costs and the opportunity for parents to have a little time to enjoy the island on their own. Many complexes have amenities such as swimming pools for young children who need a break or a warm-up to swimming at the beach.
Many of the island’s vacation rentals come with a full kitchen, which is handy for families who want the flexibility of dining at home with their children. For the times you want to head out to dine, there are plenty of restaurants that provide children's menus, games, or coloring books, and most places will also provide high chairs.
The 3 Best Places to Surf in Maui
1. The Cove at Kalama Beach Park (Kihei)
This break is perfect for beginners. It is easy to access, safe, and clear of obstacles, the waves are under 3 feet high; the people are welcoming (something you really need as a beginner), and there are a ton of surf shops.
2. Ho'okipa Beach
An advanced wave-rider will love the Ho'okipa breaks. On this world renowned North Shore beach, you have obstacles to overcome including rip tides, rocks, and reefs, and sets of unrelenting waves. Take a stroll thereafter while watching turtles sun bathe.
This surfing break, Maui's biggest, has a treat for the daring advanced surfers seeking an adrenaline rush, a new challenge, a new personal best surfing record, or the tow-in experience. Aptly nicknamed 'Jaws', it features massive and fast waves reaching up to a world-record-breaking 77 feet. According to Billabong XXL Global Big Wave Contest, Jaws is a world-winning break.
Where to Snorkel in Maui
1. Maluaka Beach
Shielded from trade winds, Maluaka is the best snorkeling beach south of Wailea. It's one of nature's beautiful masterpieces featuring golden-sand on the shores; clear, calm, warm waters; and colorful marine life including Hawaiian green sea turtles, crustaceans, octopuses, and tropical fish.
2. Honolua Bay
Walk through a forest, cross a stream, and then swim to this spot where you stand the chance to spot humpback whales playing from a distance as you snorkel alongside fish, turtles and other sea creatures.
3. Kapalua Bay
While the right side of the crescent of this sheltered cove is calm and clear, the left side (Lahaina) is not. Lahaina is ideal if you want a challenge, are adventurous, and great at navigating through rocks and reefs.
Rent a Car to Explore the Many Sides of Maui
Maui, the so-called “Valley Isle” with its lush vegetation surrounded by the sparkling Pacific, appeals to travelers of all ages. Renting a car is the most convenient way to discover the island's different faces, from the lively entertainment spots and beach resorts in West and South Maui, to the more peaceful, lush and exotic eastern side.
Visitors can enjoy beautiful drives like the scenic road to Hana, and take part in outdoor adventure activities like hikes, snorkeling, and zip-lining. Some activities have a minimum age, height, or weight requirement, so check ahead for more details.
