We are squeezing in 3 islands during our 15 night Hawaiian vacation in April, ending in Maui for 5 nights - so far booked at the Makena Beach resort. We arrive in Maui on Monday around noon and fly out on a Saturday @ 1pm.
Our wishlist in Maui includes
- sunrise @ Haleakala
- explore Lahaina town (enjoying a meal in Lahaina)
- Road to Hana
We chose Makena for the price & also for the quiet, but my only hesitation with the resort is we enjoy nice restaurants and drinks but a lot of the places we were looking at are almost an hour away in Lahaina (including the luau we were looking at), which I don't think we'll want to do after a dinner more than maybe once.
It looks like Nick's fish market is nearby. Are there any other dinner places not so far I could look into? What about in Wailea where the resorts shuttle goes?
Thanks for any info. The info on the Hawaii forum has been great in planning.
