Maui, Hawaii 2022

We did some new adventures and also hit some spots we had gone to in 2011 on our last trip there. We stayed at the Westin Maui Resort & Spa Ka’anapali and we had the best Ocean view room! We had breakfast included every morning so we worked out (enjoyed having a peloton bike!) and ate an Acai bowl on the balcony each morning. We explored upcountry one of our first days, enjoyed the view from a lavender farm, stopped in Makewo and checked out the Komodo Store and bakery (it was good but not as good we remembered!) what was better was the Maui Cookie Lady which a local let us know about!   We also checked out the pineapple wine at Maui Wine.  We had dinner twice at a restaurant we could walk to called Monkey Pod Kitchen, it was so good!  

Another day we hiked a costal trail Nakalele Point, Blowhole & “Acid War Zone” which was beautiful! Another family got there at the same time as us so we enjoyed their company and told them about the Gazebo restaurant to hit up for macadamia nut pancakes on the way back. They also had an extra reservation for sunrise at Haleakala. We hadn’t planned to do that again partially because we weren’t planning ahead on reservations, but then we had one ,so we went and the sunrise was amazing! The last time we were there we biked down but the sunrise was super cloudy, this time it was perfect! Somewhat chilly but worth it! 

We did make it to Wailea area and went to Makena Beach. It’s such a beautiful beach but lots of rough waves! We thought about the road to Hana again but since I had been twice and Dustin had done it last time, we decided to spend our last day relaxing at the hotel. Maybe we’ll take the kids on it someday!
