Maui is magical, and there is no one best way to experience it. The area has plenty of opportunities to fill those Hawaiian vacation dreams. However, while there are plenty of things to do on this beautiful island, there are also a few key things to not do. Check out this list of definite things not to do in Maui and have the trip of your dreams.
3 Things NOT to Do in Maui
- Don't leave windows open while you're gone. Yes, Maui is blessed with that quintessential island climate, complete with warm sunny days offset by cool sea breezes. However, rain clouds are prone to roll in with little notice. So while it may be tempting to leave room and car windows open during errands or attraction runs, if you don't want to have your interior soaked by last minute downpours, it is best to keep windows shut when you're not there.
- Don't leave food out. Because of the aforementioned beautiful weather Maui has, the island is also home to a multitude of insects. Although hotels and other places to stay do their best to limit these crawling critters, you're inviting trouble if you leave out food or used containers. Avoid having to deal with this unpleasantness by being conscientious of cleaning up after yourself and disposing of food and other trash in appropriate bins. This also applies to your lanai, where you want to relax, not combat insects.
- Don't get overly friendly with the wildlife. Hawaiian monk seals and green sea turtles are just two of the amazing species you can expect to see on the shorelines. But touching or otherwise harassing these animals is against both state and federal laws. Besides, there are plenty of animals here that will quickly bite back. So stay safe and don't touch. Instead, keep your cameras handy and enjoy Maui's wildlife from a distance.
Bonus tip! Don't just see Maui from one angle. The breathtaking and varied landscapes beg to be explored and enjoyed. In addition to hikes along the island's beaches and waterfall-lined drives on the Road to Hana, consider the advantages of a Maui helicopter tour like the Hana Rainforest Experience. During this tour, one of our esteemed pilots will fly you over, along and through some of the island's most remote and breathtaking landscapes.
