1st Visit to Maui, Hawaii


 Hello, we are heading to Maui Dec 30 – Jan 10. Never been there before and have some questions.

We are staying at Menehune Condos. We have two kids 15-18 girls.

I will have an electric scooter along, walking long distances don’t agree with me. Are there some beaches that have paved paths down to them or along them that would user friendly? Also which restaurants are good to try, looking for some real Hawaiian type places that are reasonable. Next for the kids Zip lining and snorkeling what do you suggest.

Since I’m being a pain which sites or scenic ares should we take in? Finally shopping which area for this, just shops, t shirts, swim suites sun dresses that sort of stuff,maybe shops near beaches with eating places just to spend a afternoon relaxing,

Anything you might suggest as a must do?



Aloha Dave!  

That’s quite a lot of questions.  Menehune Shores has a beach just south of the property, but the best beaches are in south Kihei, Wailea, and Makena which necessitate you driving.  Most beaches are just off the road.

We have some fantastic restaurants here on Maui.  Here’s a good list of our favorite Maui Restaurants.  Check out Da Kitchen for true Hawaiian Plate Lunch.

For all other activities, check out this list of best Maui activities.

Iao Valley is great to visit.  Also, check out the Road to Hana if you’re feeling adventurous.  Great waterfalls there.

Lahaina town is best for shopping, but Makawao is fun too (but that town is Upcountry and not near the beach.)


Be safe on your scooter and wear a helmet.  Aloha!
