Check out our travel tips on the top five things to do in Maui!

Hawaii has eight major islands as it’s an archipelago, so for now, we’re focusing on Maui only. From hiking to a snorkel adventure, you’re sure to find something to do in Maui using our travel advice. You can even find a few budget-friendly options, since a plane ticket to Hawaii can cost upwards of $2,000 if you’re traveling there with your partner:

1. Road to Hana: If you’re a bit strapped for cash after the hefty plane ticket, think about driving on highway 360. It’s free! The Road to Hana twists through lush rain forests and gorgeous waterfalls. But, beware: the road can surprise drivers with hairpin curves. Make sure you’re following the speed limit!

2. Ziplining: Fast and exciting, you’ll get to fly through the trees and get an aerial view of the island. There is more than one zipline in Maui, so all you need to do is pick the one you think you and your partner will enjoy the most, meaning if you are both beginners, there’s sure to be something to accommodate you both.
