Start the summer off right and spend your Memorial Day vacation in a lush, tropical island paradise. Celebrate the unofficial beginning of summer and take a much-needed break to a place full of sand, sun, fun, and plenty of rest and relaxation this Memorial Day. When you plan your tropical trip, be sure to include Maui at the top of your list. You’ll find plenty of things to keep you busy and provide a unique stay for you and your loved ones.

Haleakalā National Park

The Hawaiian Islands have many national memorials, parks, and historic sites, including one on Maui. Visit Haleakalā National Park in Kula during your Memorial Day respite. It’s a special place packed with both ancient and modern Hawaiian culture. The park is also a home for several endangered species, some of which exist only in Maui and nowhere else in the world. Take in views of stark volcanic landscapes and sub-tropical rain forest and more on a hike through the park’s backcountry.

Snorkeling and SCUBA Diving

Head out into the Pacific for a chance to swim and discover what lies beneath the water. Keep your eyes peeled for turtles, fish, as well as whales and dolphins swimming nearby. Some charters spend the whole excursion in one spot, while others may take you to a variety of spots around the island. Make sure to pick up a disposable underwater camera to get fun shots of the sea life you swim with. Keep in mind you must be certified before attempting any dives on your own.


There are plenty of things to do and see during an island vacation to Maui this Memorial Day. Make sure a visit to the beach is a daily occurrence. Change up your exercise routine with a run or walk on the beach, swim, or try a new activity like surfing, parasailing, or snorkeling. 

Road to Hana

Pack up the rental car and go on a must-do sightseeing excursion this Memorial Day. The 64-mile Road to Hana is full of hairpin turns, one-lane bridges, and numerous blind spots. If it’s your first time, you may set out on the journey thinking the 25-mile-an-hour speed limit is a bit slow, but you’ll soon be thankful for it as you make your way through the twists and turns. 

The road to Hana isn’t just driving! Pull off with the many other vehicles and hike to beautiful waterfalls, lava tubes and rocks, black sand beaches, and historic sites, including Charles Lindbergh’s grave site. Brave the road on your own and make your own stops or join a tour with a knowledgeable guide who will take you to the best landmarks and hiking spots along the way so you don’t miss a thing. However you navigate the famed road, make sure to pack plenty of drinks, snacks, and your camera.

Spa Day

The perfect and most relaxing part of your Memorial Day retreat – a spa day in a tropical paradise. You’ll be spending plenty of time out and about in the warm Maui sun. Maui has several spas to choose from, with a variety of services offered for men and women. Enjoy a massage, body scrub, facial, mani/pedi, and more. Some spas even offer packages designed just for especially for “him” and his unique body care needs.
