Can you help us make the most of our too short time in Maui?(arrive about 8am, overnight stay then depart about 6pm next day.
We are a family of 4 (our girls are in their early 20's) who will be in Maui in January via the cruise ship Pride of America.
We will have a rental car both days.
Precruise stay in Honolulu for 7 days which will include some beach time, so probably don't need a beach day in Maui.
We do not want to be in the car long enough for Road to Hana, but we'd like to see some pretty coastal views/lush greenery. I've read about driving up HWY 30 in West Maui towards Kaanapali,beyond Kapaula towards Honolua for nice views. Can anyone give any additional info/specifics/good viewing areas, or other recommendations?
We aren't into "rush/rush", but want to enjoy what little time we have here.
Next day, (but not sunrise), we will drive Upcountry area to Haleakala,and also see Iao Valley.
Thanks in advance!
