Hanging around Maui

This is my favorite tree in the whole world, partly because it’s the perfect place to string a hammock over the water and just sway the day away as the waves lap the shore underneath.  It’s the kind of thing a travel magazine would write about – or even film.

Maui’s Ocean Vodka

On our way to #SurfingGoatDairy and Ulupalakua Winery, we stumbled (no pun intended) upon Maui’s Ocean Vodka and stopped for the tour which we thoroughly enjoyed! I love the story of how this family-owned and operated business got started. Its success is guaranteed from the top-quality product they produce to the personable staff who exude their loyalty and sentiments to the owners.

This may be just the thing your family needs after days and days of leisurely lolling on pristine beaches!

Take A Botanical Tour of Maui

Although the average yearly rainfall is only 18 inches, South Maui is alive with colorful blooms all year. Accented by the delicate scent of flowers wafting on gentle island breezes, a tour of Maui’s botanical gardens and lush landscapes is enchanting and educational.

Hawaiian Red GingerMasterpieces created by nature’s subtle, steady hand blanket the area: palm trees generously share their trunks with tropical orchids, towering Bougainvillea boldly color the landscape, purple lilies float in the mirror-like waterways that grace the resorts and giant red, orange, pink and yellow hibiscus bow to guests strolling along pathways.

Clear Bottom Kayaks Give New Meaning to “Ocean View”

Growing up in the 70’s, when my formidable years were at their peak, Peter Benchley’s Jaws cursed my psyche with a lifelong phobia of sharks. For me, and others like me who, for one reason or another, don’t snorkel, there’s an exciting alternative that just hit the shores of Maui!

ClearKayaksMaui.com has introduced a fleet of two-seater kayaks with wide, clear bottoms which combines the fun of kayaking with the thrill of snorkeling, making one of the most popular water sports a thousand times better!

Walk This Way – On the Wailea Beach Walk

Steven Tyler, lead singer from Aerosmith, recently purchased a multi-million dollar home in Makena and the American Idol judge is often heard alluding to the island in comments from his perch on the show.  Now, I’m not saying you’ll run into him on the Wailea Beach Walk, but you never know!  For now, you can hum the famous 70’s rock and roll tune Walk This Way in your head as I take you on a photo tour along the beautiful Maui coastline of Wailea on the 1 ½ mile Wailea Beach Walk!
