Repeat trip - things to do

Going to Maui for the third time in January and looking for ideas of things to do. Besides relaxing and hanging out at the beach, what do you repeat visitors do? I am planning to spend the first 2 nights in Honolulu to see Pearl Harbor, with the next 6 nights in Maui (will have a work conference for two half days). We've done OLL, the aquarium, RTH, Haleakala, whale watch tour, and Banyan Tree/touring Lahaina. Still need to visit Whaler's Village and the Lavendar Farm. Any other suggestions I'm not thinking of?

Do some upcountry exploring. Go to the Tedeschi Winery. Have an elk burger at the Ulupalakua General Store and/or coffee and cinnamon rolls at Grandma's Coffee House.

Our favourite area of Maui is the Northwest coast; the scenery is stunning. Drive up to the Nakele Blowhole, walk the Kapalua Coastal Trail, stop at Napili Bay.

Have you been up to the O'o farm tour? You tour the farm, and then make lunch with the pickings!

Also, there is the Ocean Vodka Tour upcountry that is relatively new.

Note, I have enjoyed the RTH 3 times, and am keen to do it again, as there are still so many places I want to see and explore on that road. Why not go again?

I was going to say exactly what Nicole said. Napili, Kapalua and Honolua Bay, the blowhole. Drive the Lower Rd. through Honokawai, and Kahana. It took us a couple trips to discover this area and it became our favorite.

What about Big Beach, and La Perouse Bay? Did you drive very far in South Maui?

And in January, I'd be taking whale watch tours, as many as I could! They will always be different.

What about the Feast at Lele this time? It's more of a Polynesian Revue than a luau.

How many people are going on this trip?

Oh, another one..... hike the Waihe'e Ridge Trail. And also, Mendes Ranch has a new BBQ night going on.

Have you ever had lunch at Class Act, at the college in Kahului?
