We’ve fallen in love all over again. While Maui our first family trip to Hawaii (with a baby!) , our most recent trip with a tween and an older child showed us a whole new side of the Valley Isle. We enjoyed the heck out of every moment and I’m confident you will too after reading our tips! In this article we’ll share our top Maui activities for families, where to stay on Maui with kids, great family-friendly dining options and some must-read travel tips.

There are so many things to do in Maui with kids and our family loved it so much that we already have a second trip booked later this year. Look for more updates to come! We rely on our Southwest Companion Passes and travel credit cards to make this type of trip happen!

Where to stay on Maui with kids

Maui has a few distinct areas to stay in, and it’s worth considering what kind of vibe your family is looking for. Most families will want to base themselves along the calm, dry western shores of Maui rather than on the rainier eastern side or on the north shore – but don’t be afraid to visit those areas too!

West Maui – The stretch of hotels and condos from Ka’anapali up through Kapalua is a great option if you’re looking to enjoy plenty of r&r, beach/resort time and good food. Many families (including ours) choose to stay here on their first trip to Hawaii with a baby or toddler because it’s so easy and nice!

After the devastating Lahaina fire in 2023, keep in mind that there are still many displaced residents in the area and plenty of businesses that haven’t yet reopened. The southern end of Ka’anapali has experienced substantial beach erosion over the last few years, so if beach time is your focus you’re better off looking for accommodations north and south of Black Rock.

  • Honua Kai condo resort – Perfect balance of room to spread out with resort-style amenities like spa and restaurant, with condos up to 3 bedrooms and great beach access in Kapalua
  • Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas – We had a great stay at this “condotel resort”, which offers the best of both worlds and is just north of Black Rock
  • Westin Maui – Family-friendly Ka’anapali resort right next to Whaler’s Village stores and restaurants

South Maui – On our most recent trip to Maui we opted to stay in south Maui for a different experience. We loved it so much that we’re already planning a return visit with our extended family! The two primary areas here are Kihei to the north and Wailea to the south. They both offer great proximity to the airport and many other top Maui attractions for family but feel quite different.

Kihei is much denser than Wailea, with more condos and small hotels than you can possibly count. With a few exceptions, Kihei Road separates most accommodations from the beach – if being steps from the sand is important to you, spend some time using the satellite view on Google Maps before committing to any specific lodging.

There are two big upsides of staying in Kihei: first, it’s much, much less expensive than the Wailea resorts; second, there are tons of great restaurants at a variety of price points. While we stayed in Wailea, we ate most of our meals in Kihei. You’ll also be closer to Mā‘alaea harbor, which is currently the primary harbor for tourist boats and also home to the Maui Ocean Center.

Wailea has a luxury bent to it, with Maui’s top resorts located here along with a smattering of great condos (including where we stayed). Dining options are a little more limited and high-end and it’s important to know that Wailea is built on a hill sloping down to the ocean. The further you are from the beach, the higher your elevation will be (generally). If you plan to walk to the beach, be sure you’re prepared to walk back! But the biggest upside is that there’s potentially very, very little separating you from the ocean in Wailea.

  • Condos near Keawakapu beach – We stayed in this area and it’s the best of both worlds with a beach that’s not crowded
  • Hale Hui Kai – Another great condo building on north Keawakapu beach
  • Andaz Maui at Wailea – Not kid-oriented, but a great option with older kids and teens and some of the best beach access in south Maui. We’re looking forward to our upcoming stay!
  • Wailea Beach Resort – Perhaps the most family-friendly resort in Wailea but it’s not right on the beach (despite its name)

Awesome family activities in Maui

We stayed very very busy during our time on Maui… and I wouldn’t have it any other way. There’s so much to do! We’ll be visiting again this winter and I’ll look forward to adding even more options.

Beach time

Maui has tons of incredible beaches, and we were lucky to be a 2 minute walk to Keawakapu (pictured above during a perfect sunset). It’s a bit of a “hidden in plain sight” gem, as it’s immediately north of the more popular Ulua and Wailea beaches – while the latter two have large resorts fronting them, Keawakapu mostly has houses so there just aren’t nearly as many people. But there’s parking available! My daughter spent an hour watching turtles swim back and forth just a few yards from shore. Just don’t go telling everyone, okay?

If you’re staying in Kihei you’ll want to hit the Kameole beaches, Kam I, Kam II and Kam III. Kam I and II are best for families with young kids as they have calm waters and Kam I has an especially large swatch of amazing golden sand; you can snorkel at either one near the rocks that separate the beaches. Kam III is a great choice if you have a tween or teen who wants to try boogie boarding as the surf is more intense, but the grassy park above also has shade and a playground.

In west Maui, Kapalua Bay and Napili Bay offer smooth water for the smallest kids but great snorkeling for their older family members. They’re both popular so arrive early! Ka’anapali Beach is also a fantastic option for visitors of all ages, with the most sand available north and south of Black Rock.

Snorkel Molokini crater with kids

If you’ve ever wanted to snorkel in water so clear that it’s like being in a fishbowl, don’t miss Molokini! It’s just off the coast of Wailea but most tours go from the Mā‘alaea harbor – still an easy ride.

Four Winds Molokini snorkeling tour provided a great experience for all ages and had every piece of equipment we could possibly need. We brought our own snorkel gear but our daughter was excited to try out the Sea Board since she didn’t feel like swimming (she only looks grumpy in the photo above because it took about 10 tries to get the photo right – the Sea Board worked great when she wanted to see fish without being in the water). We’ll consider them again next time we’re on Maui to visit Coral Gardens, which doesn’t have quite the same visibility but an amazing diversity of wildlife.

We opted for a morning tour, which was a great choice as the conditions are best for snorkeling and the boat ride isn’t as rough.

Whale watching

Even if you don’t want to get in the water, if you’re visiting Maui between December and April you have to get out on a boat for whale watching! We had a wonderful time with the Pacific Whale Foundation watching mom and baby humpback whales breaching all afternoon. It’s absolutely magical. We brought our baby in a carrier, but it’s suitable for all ages. The boats are large, so the ride is pretty smooth (most of the time) and there’s plenty of indoor seating if you need it.

Maui Ocean Center

If you’ve had enough sun on a boat or the beach, the Maui Ocean Center (aquarium) is located at Mā‘alaea harbor as well. There are great educational exhibits on Hawaii ocean life from fish to marine mammals to corals. Don’t miss the fascinating exhibit on the island of Kaho‘olawe and the 3D humpback whale experience.

The Maui Ocean Center is expensive so be sure to buy your tickets​ in advance to save, or bring your ASTC member card from your local science museum to get at least two adults in free.

I’m also obliged to let you know that there’s an excellent (but pricey) Dole Whip station on-site. My fruit-hating tween has been forever converted! It’s conveniently located next to the play area. You can also have a sustainable sit-down lunch with a great view of the harbor at Seascape Restaurant – it’s a little pricey, but keep your eyes peeled for the three-course business lunch special and the keiki menu.

Haleakala sunset

I definitely recommend an afternoon trip up to explore Haleakala National Park and watch the sunset at the summit. Start with lunch at Kula Lodge to enjoy the view before heading to the park – you can reserve a table in advance if you want to ensure there’s no wait.

Once you head into the park, there are some excellent stops – follow the recommendations of Guide Along. We enjoyed an easy nature walk through Hosmer Grove (watch for the iconic but threatened ‘i’iwi bird in the parking lot)and then walked along the crater rim to get an even better view of its cinder cones.

Haleakala was amazing and so unique! You don’t need a permit/reservation to go in the afternoon (unlike the morning), but do bring your National Parks Pass if you have one.

While sunrise is the most popular time to visit Haleakala, it’s also a little tricky. If you want to drive yourself, you’ll be leaving most coastal hotels in the neighborhood of 4am and will need to secure a reservation. Many visitors prefer to go on a guided tour so they don’t have to drive themselves up switchbacks when it’s totally dark, but that requires pickup as early as 2am depending on the time of year and where you’re staying.

Sunset was much windier than we expected and I wish we’d brought towels or blankets in addition to our long layers. Some smart people even bring their hotel bathrobes! Make sure you bring snacks and have a dinner plan in place, as it’ll be really late when you get down. As a point of reference, we left the minute the sun set at 6:45 and received our entrees at dinner in Kihei at 8:45; in winter the sunset will be almost an hour earlier and in summer about 25 minutes later.

ʻĪao Valley State Monument

Maui has an incredible landscape and you won’t want to miss the dramatic, lush scenery of ʻĪao Valley. In addition to its natural beauty, the ‘Iao Valley is historically significant as the site of Kamehameha’s 1790 battle seeking to conquer Maui and further unite the Hawaiian islands as his kingdom.

You need to ​reserve your spot​ in advance but you can move it up to 3 days in advance (speaking from experience). We visited for about an hour, though you can stay much longer if you opt for serious hiking. Much of the path is accessible and you’ll get great views even if you need a stroller or wheelchair.

It’s just 20 minutes from the airport, so a great option if you have some time on your arrival or departure day. Morning visits are better because you’re more likely to see the ʻĪao Needle. Have a light jacket accessible, as it’s much cooler here than along the shore and is more likely to be raining.

Old Lahaina Luau

The venerable and much-loved Old Lahaina Luau has just re-opened after the terrible Lahaina fire. Unfortunately they only re-opened days before our arrival and we had already filled our schedule but if you haven’t booked a luau yet be sure to go and show them some love! We’ll look forward to it on our next trip. We previous attended and loved their sister luau The Feast at Lele, but sadly it was a victim of the 2023 fire.

You can choose from either table and chair seating or “traditional” seating consisting of pillows at low tables. The traditional seating is in the front row, closest to the luau performances. Either way you can’t go wrong, but be sure to book early to have your pick of dates and the best seats.

If you’re on a tighter budget but still want traditional Polynesian entertainment, check out the hula show at the South Maui Gardens in Kihei. It’s not a luau as there’s no food served, but there are several food trucks on site where you can choose food that works for your family and then eat it at the provided picnic tables or on your own picnic blanket. It also wraps up an hour earlier than most luaus, so this could be a great “luau” experience for toddlers or younger kids – especially if you’re coming from the east coast and staying in Kihei or Wailea!

Maui kayaking tour

One of our favorite things to do in Hawaii is go kayaking, and Maui has some great options! An excellent tour that’s high on our list for next time is this clear kayaking tour of Olowalu reef (Coral Gardens) with the option to snorkel. The minimum age to participate is 4, and whether kids choose to stay in their kayak or hop in the water they’ll have an amazing up-close look at one of Hawaii’s best coral reefs and its inhabitants. You’re almost guaranteed to see turtles here!

Maui surfing lesson

What could be more Hawaiian than learning to surf on Maui? Choosing a kid-friendly surfing lesson in Maui can be a little tricky as they all have different ages and requirements for private vs semi-private vs group. We haven’t used them yet but we’ll probably book a lesson for with winter with Keep It Simple Hawaii, located just south of Lahaina.

Not only does Keep It Simple have great reviews, but they also have class offerings that make sense for families. Kids 5-9 can sign up for a 1-on-1 private lesson, while kids ages 10+ can take part in a semi-private 2-on-1 (or 3-on-2) or “group” lesson. But unlike other companies, those group lessons have at least one instructor per three participants (some schools are up to six) and at a totally reasonable price. Even better, the group lesson is only your group – you won’t be with random people while you’re working hard to learn.

Maui family photo session

There’s no better way to remember your epic family trip to Maui than with professional photos! Even better, it’s the perfect way to ensure that everyone (even Mom) gets in the picture. Since we island hopped on our most recent trip, we opted to do our photos on Kauai (pictured above, during a rain storm) but we’ll do them on Maui in the winter when we go back with our extended family.

We’ve had a great experience using Flytographer all over the world. The service makes it incredibly easy to connect with a great local photographer, and in Hawaii it will generally cost you less than using the photographer recommended by a hotel. As of this writing there are 11 different photographers on Maui available through Flytographer so it’s easy to find someone who matches your style. Since all beaches in Hawaii are public and must have public access, there’s no worry about needing photo permits to shoot in an amazing spot.

There’s usually someone available to shoot on Maui since there are so many photographers available through Flytographer, but book early to get your top pick. The availability calendar is right on the site! For a typical family photo session we usually book a 60 minute slot. Save $25 when you use code ‘FAMILYVOYAGE’ on your first shoot!

Want more things to do on Maui with kids?

If this list didn’t give you enough ideas, check out this awesome guide to visiting Maui with kids! It’s written by my friend Marcie who has visited Maui with her own kids many, many times over the years. It’s loaded with insider tips, maps and itinerary suggestions.


Family-friendly Maui restaurants (and beyond)

All I can say is “yum”. Maui has a thriving agriculture industry, venerable cattle production and of course amazingly fresh fish. Of course you’ll need to decide how much to budget for food, because eating out every meal on Maui is a pricey proposition.

If you’re planning on lots of groceries or a big group trip staying in a vacation rental, make a stop at Costco near the airport. Otherwise you can shop for smaller quantities at grocery stores like Safeway and Foodland – don’t miss the Foodland poke counter, and sign up for their free store discount card for extra savings.

You can also pick up a few basic items like Maui onion chips, Aloha Maid juice and prepared lunch items (poke, sandwiches, fried chicken, moco loco plates) at Island Gourmet Markets in Wailea or Honolua Store in Kapalua. Don’t go out of your way to stop here, but they’re convenient options if they line up with your beach picnic plans! Don’t buy dairy here if you can avoid it, as the prices are extremely high. They’re owned by ABC Stores, so your receipts count toward a free souvenir at the end of your trip if you spend $100 – easy to hit if you buy lunch, some snacks, a sunscreen and a beach toy.

Ululani’s Shave Ice

Ululani’s has locations around the island, including Kihei and right near the airport (in case you need a fix right when you land, as we did). The texture is by far the best of any shave ice we’ve ever tried – and we make it our mission to try a lot of shave ice.

It’s creamy and without a hint of graininess. They guarantee you’ll have flavor at the bottom of your bowl, and you’re always welcome to pop to the front of the line for a little extra. We still have fond memories of their Lahaina location that we visited more than a decade ago and wish them well in rebuilding.

Paia Fish Market

Paia Fish Market is delicious and has locations in both Paia (north shore) and Kihei (near Wailea). We ate at both and actually preferred the food and setting in Kihei. You can choose from a variety of fish types, flavor profiles and plate types. The presentation isn’t fancy but the taste is so so good!

I found that the dinner portion of the fresh catch plate was enough for me to share with a kiddo, while my husband preferred to keep his order of fish tacos to himself. There’s also a kids menu with some “safe” basics like buttered pasta if you have a particular eater in your midst.

This is a good time to mention Mama’s Fish House as well. It’s one of the most famous restaurants on Maui, but reservations are incredibly difficult to land, particularly for dinner. We’re talking 6+ months out, you may not be able to get your date/time of choice. If eating at Mama’s is on your bucket list I recommend reserving a table the day you buy your flights. And even if you don’t end up dining there, I promise your family trip to Maui will still be incredible and tasty.

Coconuts Fish Cafe

Coconuts Fish Cafe offers fresh fish in a low-key setting at reasonable prices… a hard combination to find in Hawaii. Don’t sleep on the fish tacos, which my foodie husband designated as “legit”; I loved the macadamia encrusted mahi-mahi. They also offer some typical non-fish Hawaiian foods like kalua pork and poke. Kids have a wide range of choices, including a child-sized portion of grilled mahi-mahi. There are two locations in Kihei. Pay attention to the tables while you wait for your food!

Monkeypod

Monkeypod is a great choice for a high-end meal. They serve wonderful fresh fish and locally-sourced Maui beef! Even the kids menu has these choices, but in kid-friendly serving sizes (with reduced prices to match). I recommend getting a reservation in advance, but they do a good job of holding tables for walk-ins too. There are locations in both Maui in Ka’anapali.

If you like cocktails, be sure to put this on your food itinerary! All of Merriman’s restaurants are known for their mai tai topped with delicious liliko’i cream.

Leoda’s Kitchen and Pie Shop

Friend and writer Lana stayed on Maui just a few weeks after us and swears by Leoda’s Kitchen and Pie Shop just south of Lahaina (it’s the perfect stop after either the kayaking tour or suft lesson I suggested above). They have awesome sandwiches, mac & cheese, and of course pie. Locally-inspired favorites include chocolate mac nut and Olowalu lime! It’s a popular spot, so order ahead online to pick up to save yourself from waiting in line.

Maui Brewing Company

While this isn’t the most traditional Hawaiian dining on Maui, Maui Brewing Company serves up solid fish tacos, bar food and beers here and plenty of seating to go around. The Kihei location is open until 10pm, while most other restaurants in the area close at 9pm. Keep this one in your back pocket if you need to have dinner late one night, like when coming down from sunset at Haleakala – note the child asleep on the table in the background.

Momona Bakery and Coffee Shop

Need an early morning pick-me-up on your way to Hana or the airport? Swing by Momona Bakery and Coffee Shop in Kahului – it’s easy to find because it’s right where HI-311 ends in the north. The pastries are amazing and they have great avocado toast if you have time for a sit-down breakfast. Thankfully Momona opens at 6am on weekdays and 7am on weekends.

Ichiban Okazuya

As you may know, current Hawaiian culture reflects the mix of all those who have come through over the centuries, from early native Hawaiians to Portugese traders to English-speaking business people to Japanese laborers. This last group has left an indelible mark on Hawaiian cuisine, and you can see that in full force at Ichiban Okazuya.

This small take away stand serves up fresh, hot Japanese food served up in Hawaiian-style plate lunches to a mostly local customer base – you can opt for delicious chicken katsu with aside of mac salad! It right near the exit from ‘Iao Valley and also an easy swing from Mā’alaea Harbor and the Maui Ocean Center. I’d avoid the soups unless you’re confident that you have a good place to sit and picnic (speaking from experience).


Maui travel tips for families

Now that I’ve shared the best family activities in Maui, Hawaii I want to add a few tips I’ve learned that will help you have an amazing trip.

Rental car

Yes, you will definitely need a rental car on Maui unless you plan to park yourself at a hotel the whole time and use their shuttle to expand your radius by a mile or two. Read up on renting a car in Hawaii to make sure you do it as economically as possible and choose the right car.

Be sure to bring the right car seat for your child. Hawaii’s updated car seat law requires rear facing until at least 2 years old, some sort of harnessed car seat until at least 4 years old and a booster seat until at least 10 years old or 4’9″ (average for an 11 year old). I’m a certified Child Passenger Safety Technician and I’ve written up my suggestions for the best travel car seat by age.

Speaking of driving, I highly recommend that you download the GuideAlong app! We purchased the Hawaii bundle that covers all of the islands and used it extensively while driving on both Maui and Kauai. It added so much context to our experience and helped us understand even more of the local history and culture. It was so enjoyable that our kids would ask us to turn it on when we got in the car.

Luau

If you haven’t been to Hawaii before (or it’s been a long time) you’ll almost certainly want to attend a luau. They’re fun for the whole family, and each one is a little different. But they all have one thing in common: they run late.

If you have young kids who go to bed early or you’re coming from the Eastern time zone, be sure to schedule the luau for the end of your trip so everyone will be better adjusted to the Hawaii time zone. My favorite timing is the next-to-last night of a trip to Hawaii – everyone’s bodies have acclimated but the festivities don’t get in the way of packing up.

Sun protection

I can’t stress enough how important sun protection is in Hawaii. Even the smallest misstep could lead to a painful, damaging disaster. I strongly recommend long-sleeve rash guards for the entire family and frequent sunscreen reapplication for faces and hands (my husband learned that one the hard way).

Having spent a lot of time in Hawaii with kids, I feel like it’s virtually impossible to reapply sunscreen on a water-loving kid’s torso as often as you truly need to. Besides, more rash guard = more time playing and less time on sunscreen! My daughter absolutely loves these suits and my son lived in this rash guard, which matches everything else well enough. My husband wore this one every single day (especially for head coverage while snorkeling) and it was a real help.

In terms of sunscreen, it’s critical that you use reef-safe sunscreen in Hawaii. It’s the law! We’ve had good experiences with Thinkbaby sunscreen along with All Good sport sunscreen. Be sure to grab 3oz sizes if you’re flying carry-on, and you can stash a tube in each person’s backpack. It may seem “extra” but I also like to throw in a reef-safe sunscreen stick; my kids prefer it to creams and it doesn’t count toward my liquid allowance. We tend to use that more as backup and for reapplication rather than our main sunscreen of the day.

If you’re visiting Hawaii with a baby, you’ll need some non-sunscreen options in your toolkit. Check out my Hawaii packing list for kids for lots of ideas!

Souvenirs

Thankfully for our family Hawaii rarely generates as many souvenir requests as other trips! We’ve had success placing item limits rather than dollar limits, though every family does it differently. Unless there’s something truly unique that comes along, it’s helpful to specify one t-shirt, one stuffed animal and one food item (for example).

For more meaningful souvenir shopping, be sure to spend an hour or two in Paia town. There are plenty of great stores of all types. Our family especially enjoyed Maui Hands, which also has locations in Makawao and Wailea; this gallery showcases fabulous work by over 300 local artists using every type of medium you can imagine. Mele Ukelele is a great stop to learn about ukeleles and even bring one home. You could also try the Maui Swap Meet in Kahului or Kalama Village in Kihei for a sampling of many smaller vendors.

There’s also one free souvenir your family shouldn’t miss out on: a Hawaii mug from the ABC stores. No, it’s not the most authentic souvenir to buy in Hawaii but it might become one of your family’s most frequently used items! You can get one for every $100 worth of receipts you present from ABC stores (and their affiliates) without spending an extra dime.

Planning your time

It’s tempting to try to squeeze everything in, especially if you won’t get back to Hawaii often! But remember to slow down and soak up both the sunshine and the Aloha spirit. I don’t say that as just a platitude. A huge part of what makes Hawaii so special is the people who call it home. If you overs-chedule yourself, it’s really hard to make the time and space for the human side of travel.

Try to strike a balance between low-key days and more intense days. For instance, if you’re doing a boat tour in the morning allow for a post-lunch rest before hitting the beach for sunset. If you plan to drive to Hana or experience sunset at Haleakala, don’t have a major activity on deck for the next morning. You and your kids will thank me!

Maui airport

Maui has just one airport, on the north side of the island in Kahului. While the airport isn’t huge, you may encounter lengthy security lines when you’re departing if it’s a popular time of day like early morning or evening – especially over school breaks. It’s very helpful to have TSA PreCheck, which will help you avoid much of the wait. The Chase Sapphire Reserve credit card has tons of great features, including a credit that covers the entire PreCheck fee! Each adult in your party needs to have PreCheck but kids can go through with their parents.

As with all airports in Hawaii, you’ll have to scan your luggage at an agricultural inspection station when departing. If you are checking luggage, the scan takes place before you hand in your luggage so be sure to allow extra time. All carry-on bags are inspected after the TSA check but before you enter the gate area.

Back in 2019, Maui opened a consolidated rental car facility. It’s connected to the terminal by a super cool old-time-looking electric tram (the crosswalks are really neat), but you can also make the walk in just 5 minutes if you don’t have too much luggage or any mobility challenges.
