Looking for romantic, out of the way places for dining, looking for fun experiences and day trips. I have never been to Hawaii, and am trying to do research to plan some fun parts to our trip

    All sorts of Maui restaurants are reviewed and described here: http://www.mauihawaii.org/restaurants.htm
    For romantic, I suggest Plantation House. For non-touristy I suggest Sam Sato's. about 6 years ago

    Restaurants: Star Noodle, Monkey Pod, Capishe?

    Stay out in Hana for a night or two!

    Go to Lanai with Trilogy instead of the average Molokini Trip

    Mamas fish house in Paia is amazing food and fine dining experience Maui style. Haleakala for sunset is a great spot for a date, as well as driving to Hana for a night in a B&B almost 5 years ago

    Trilogy is for touristy tourists. Maui Prince Hotel has a guy with a catamaran who will be first out to Molikini Island and last to leave. Tourists, yes...but not as many as a Trilogy boat. Anywhere you go in Maui is going to have tourists, it's a tourist economy. However, you can find some great places to go. I would suggest taking a day hike about La Perouse Bay. This is the South end of the island past Big Beach (Makena). There is a small parking area where you can depart on foot along the coast. Old lava flow here, sturdy shoes in order unless you want stubbed toes. You can pack a lunch and go shell hunting. Lots of shells under the coral washed up on shore; just dig a little and keep a keen eye. My Auntie in Maui and this is our favorite spot; usually end up with at least 8 pounds of shells. There is also a blow hole here which goes up with each set of waves which come in; stand back. Be aware here as there are no lifeguards so swimming is not a good idea but you can still get your feet wet. Be careful of rogue waves. It's beautiful and not a lot of tourists here. Also, Haile Maile General Store is a great place to visit upcountry, great food. If you must do a luau, take in the Old Lahaina Luau; they are committed to keeping the Hawaiiana culture alive and take great pride in this. No hotel stage show luau, nothing like it in Hawaii. There is a farmers market weekly in Kihei and up near Lahaina. Fresh produce grown upcountry, better than store bought and supporting the local farmers. You can google the locations for your shopping day in the area you are staying. Stella Blue Cafe in Kehei is a great little spot for breakfast and lunch; all the locals go there. Have a beautiful trip! almost 5 years ago

    Maui is a travellers destination - -so expect lots of people everywhere. But its still excellent with lot of secluded beaches and sun all around. Mostly things are very good, you need not expect major pot holes -- like bad restaurants. I hope you are renting a apartment-type of accommodation. They usually provide for everything including beach towels and coolers. almost 5 years ago
