Offbeat Activities in Maui

Looking to try something on Maui that most tourists haven't even heard of? Sure the popular snorkeling beaches, restaurants, and tours or worth doing, but we have put together a list of some of the off-beat attractions that you may leave a lasting impression.

For starters, most tourists visiting Maui tend to stay in coastal regions where they can lay on the beach and enjoy the sounds of the crashing waves. Why not head up the volcano to the top of Haleakala Volcano? While climbing in elevation, look to stop in the town of Makawao to explore the art galleries and local made clothing stores.

In the nearby town of Kula, stop to see the Holy Ghost Church. The small octagon church with a tin roof was shipped over for Portugal centuries ago. Just up the street is Rice Park, where local children like to sled down the steep grass hills on cardboard boxes.

Also located high in elevation is the Tedeschi Winery, Maui's only winery. Stop by for free wine tastings and tours daily. After the tour, walk across the street to the Ulupalakua Ranch Store for and elk burger are teriyaki steak.

Final suggestions for off-the-beat attractions include the Kula Botanical Gardens, the Lavender Farm, the Maui Swap Meet, and the National Marine Sanctuary Humpback Whale Learning Center in Kihei.
