      Hotel, activities, surfing recommendations?

      Maui Jan 2, 2017 at 4:13 PM

      Hi everyone,

      It's been a while since I've written. Well it's time for another trip. I'm hoping to go to Maui to experience Hawaii for the first time with my husband

      I don't know much about Hawaii. Just know they have great coffee and a great place to learn to surf.

      Does anyone know of a great hotel near the waters with a nice beach that's also near activities like surfing, snorkelling, hiking, kayaking? We like the adventure type of vacations.

      Hopefully to get some ideas and not break the bank.

      Thanks.

    • Keonehe' ehe' e hiking trail start altitude too high?

      by darsunt Online Now Jan 26, 2013 at 9:25 AM

      I understand that the keonehe' ehe' e trailhead is just a short distance from the lookout point, at 9700 ft. My wife had trouble with altitude sickness hiking in Lake Tahoe (7k ft?) so do you guys think this trailhead would be too high for her?
      Is their any trail into the crater that has less elevation?

      Sunrise or sunset??

      by annk Online Now Jan 29, 2004 at 6:55 PM

      I've heard the majority of visitors ascend the mountain in the pre-dawn hours to view the spectacular sunrise and if skies are clear one can see the other Hawaiian islands in the distance. It supposedly gets very crowded in the mornings so an option would be to visit in the afternoon to see the sunset. Has anyone seen the Haleakala sunsets? If so are they less spectacular than the sunrises? Sunrise or sunset I'd like to hear of your experiences at Haleakala. Thanks!
