Maalaea Beaches

Maalaea is home to the largest stretch of sand on Maui. At the south end is the Sugar Beach area and on the North end, you will find the Haycraft beach park. Right offshore of Haycraft Park, you will find the famous surfing break that is known as “Freight Trains”. This break is only surfable a few times a year when there is a large South Swell and if you get lucky enough to see it when it is breaking you will quickly understand why the break is so famous. It a fast barreling right-hander that provides rides that are hundreds of yards long. For the rest of the year, the waves are typically very small and the long sandy coastline makes for an ideal place to find a piece of beach with some privacy.

Maalaea Restaurants

The restaurants of Maalaea are fairly limited because the area is so small. However, the selection that you can find here is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters. The main specialty of Maalaea is fresh fish. There are many fishing boats that operate from Maalaea harbor that each brings an abundant supply of fish to the region of Maalaea.

Maalaea Hotels

Technically, many of them would be considered “bed and breakfast” units instead of hotels because they are located in mixed-use buildings. There are some great ocean views that you can find here, and the convenience to the ocean and harbor make for an ideal location for those who appreciate the recreational activities in (or on) the water.

Things to do in Maalaea

Maalaea has great things to do whether you are looking to spend a day by the ocean on a beautiful white sand beach or out on a boat exploring the beautiful waters of Maui. Whale watching, parasailing, snorkeling, sunset sails are available from the Maalaea Harbor. If you are more into land-based activities one of the largest Ziplines in the state is located right across the highway from the Maalaea Ocean Center. Right next to where the zip line ends you will also find the trailhead for one of the most scenic trails on the island. Maalaea has a fantastic hiking trail that goes all the way over the mountain and ends right near the Pali Tunnel.

Maalaea Golf

Maalaea has two golf courses that are located within a short drive of the Maalaea Harbor. Tucked against the side of the mountain, the two factors that will affect the play the most are the strong afternoon winds and the steep slopes. The two things you should remember when playing either of these courses are to keep your shots as low as possible to minimize the wind’s effects on your shots. The second thing you should keep in mind is to always aim a bit uphill of where you want your ball to land. Many shots that land right in the center of the fairway will eventually end up rolling downhill into the rough.

Maalaea Vacation Rental

Maalaea’s places to stay are technically all vacation rentals because they are located in mixed-use condominium buildings. If you are interested in staying in Wailea you will have easy access to the harbor, a beautiful white sand beach, and some great organized vacation activities.
