“Hello, my fiance and I will be coming to Maui Hawaii Sept 1st, 2013 for our honeymoon. can you please give me some things we can do that will not be too costly including restaurants? we are outdoor people and we like to trails and waterfalls. we are extremely excited and looking forward to visiting. we are coming from New York and have a long plane ride. I greatly appreciate any help you could give me thank you.”
First off, congratulations! September is a great time to come because the weather isn’t as hot as mid-summer and the crowds are lessened. We always recommend traveling off-season because you get better prices and more selection across the board.
Inexpensive restaurants can be found in areas that are away from the resorts. The most expensive restaurant on the island (Mama’s Fish House) has one of the best views. If you want a comparable experience try Five Palms at the Mana Kai in Wailea. The food is pretty good, and if you’re on the patio, you get an even better view than Mamas. If you’re on the west side, try Mala Wharf Restaurant. They have great food, and they sit pretty much right on the water. We love that place. If you want local grinds at a great price, try Da Kitchen. See more restaurants in Maui.
As for things to do, there are a ton of activities that don’t cost much or are free. Check out this list of top ten free Maui activities.
We hope that helps! Aloha!
