If you had to choose 3 things to do on Maui, what would they be? (Please be specific... ie. "Snorkling at _______ Beach" vs. "snorkling") Thanks!!

Haleakala, Iao Needle, take a drive (upcountry, lava fields, to the blowhole). I know this will be 4, but you have to find time to lounge by the pool or on the beach and just relax and enjoy!

Our 3 favorites: Warren & Annabelle's in Lahaina, "fast is fun" sail on the Scotch Mist II, gourmet lunch at the Claas Act restaurant on the UH Maui campus in Wailuku. We do them every time we visit (next trip in September). Never gets old.

Wake up and enjoy the early morning on the lanai with some Kona coffee and decide what to do (or not) for the day.

Spend time on the beach with a good book and staring mindlessly at the horizon.

Watch the sunset while enjoying the smell of plumeria on the trade breeze and a tropical drink in hand.

Other than relaxing and enjoying sunrise/sunset on the lanai with coffee/wine...

Snorkeling trip ... Trilogy to Lanai is great, but anything to be out on the water.

Kayaking with Maui EcoAdventures (or Maui EcoTours ... cant quite remember)

Hiking the Pipiwai trail at Oheo gulch
