Nature & Wildlife in Maui

The Hawaiian Islands are home to indigenous fish, birds, and insects found nowhere else on the planet. From the coral reefs to the top of Haleakala creator, there are plenty of beautiful settings and local fauna that tourists will marvel over.

If you are a person that appreciates nature, you will want to absolutely plan a drive out to Hana, located on Maui's remote eastern side of the island. As you drive along a narrow and winding road, you will pass rainbow eucalyptus trees, gushing waterfalls, and overgrown palms and ferns that cast shade over the ground below them. Hana is also home to natural outdoor adventures like the Seven Sacred Pools, Wai'anapanapa's black sand beach, and the Hana lava tube system.

A trip up to the top of Haleakala volcano is also a must. From the top you can view up to four neighboring islands, as well as the entire Maui valley down below you. The ecosystem at the top of the volcano is quite unlike anything you will come across. Volcanic red dirt and rocks liter landscape, and make you feel as if you were on the moon.

Ocean lovers should head to a number of snorkeling spots scattered across the island. Ulua Beach is Kihei is great for beginners, while more experience divers will want to head out to Honolua Bay or the varying coves along La Perouse Bay. Snorkle cruises and scuba diving cruises can also be arranged to the uninhabited island of Molokini, which also happens to be a nature reserve.
