We just moved back to Maui with our two young kiddos after being away for almost five years! It’s one of the most magical places in the entire world. We love it so much.
When most people think of a Maui vacation, peaceful beach time comes to mind. But actually, the island is incredibly diverse. It has six individual microclimates, each one different. Even the beaches vary dramatically. For example, Maui is known for its wind. Some spots are awesome for kite or windsurfing — but are terrible for a peaceful swim or casual walk on the beach. So, before you book a hotel or short-term rental it’s important to make sure that what you are wanting from your vacation lines up with where you are staying on Maui.
