You can round out any Maui itinerary with day trips to neighboring Molokai and Lanai. Both are a short flight or ferry ride across the Auau Channel—so your clients can enjoy enchanting experiences on all three “Magic Isles” of Maui Nui. Here are three top attractions to recommend:
MAUI | IAO VALLEY | This state monument—rich with cultural and spiritual meaning—reopened to visitors in August after a temporary closure to repair flood-damaged areas. Your clients can hike the 0.6-mile trail for an up-close look at the imposing Iao Needle, a 1,200-foot-high natural rock formation.
MOLOKAI | KALAUPAPA NATIONAL HISTORICAL PARK | This long-ago exile for residents stricken with Hansen’s disease is tucked into an isolated peninsula reachable only by hike, mule or small plane. It’s the perfect spot for your clients to take in some island history and appreciate breathtaking panoramas from the world’s tallest sea cliffs.
LANAI | SHIPWRECK BEACH | The strong ocean currents and rocky bottom that caused numerous ships to wreck here also make these waters unsafe for swimming. But your clients will love sunbathing, beachcombing or picnicking on the eight-mile stretch of sand and photographing the fully exposed hull of a stranded 1940s oil tanker.
But there’s even more for your clients in the Hawaiian Islands—and only one place to learn about it all.
