Trip Planning

For many, a vacation to Maui is a once-in-a-lifetime trip, so making the most of your time is paramount. With so much to see and do, it can be overwhelming to create an itinerary that gives you a good mix of experiences. Add to that the task of finding family-friendly things to do, and there’s a whole other level of planning to consider. Whether you’re looking for the best water activities and beaches, adrenaline-pumping adventures, culturally immersive experiences, or all of the above, you can find it here in Maui. This month, to help make your vacation planning a breeze, we’ve compiled a list of the top family-friendly activities for your Maui spring break getaway. Check them out below and start planning your perfect trip!

Surfing, Fishing, and Boating in Maui

While there are endless things to do on your Maui vacation, perhaps the most obvious is spending time at the beach. After all, our shores have been ranked in the Top 10 World’s Best Beaches, and Ka’anapali Beach even reached number 1 for Best U.S. Beach in 2023! From the golden sands to the crystal-clear waters, there’s no place quite like the shores of Maui. 

When it comes to making the most of your beach days on your spring break vacation, there’s no wrong way to play. Whether you’re trying your hand at surfing with lessons from Kihei’s Aloha Surf School, booking a fishing charter and hooking a prized catch, or setting sail on a whale-watching tour before the majestic Humpbacks return to Alaska, your days can be as adventurous as you choose. If leisurely activities are more your speed, the beaches around many of our Bello Realty, Inc. vacation rentals offer calm water perfect for snorkeling and gently floating on the waves or lying on the beach as the kids build sandcastles. No matter how you fill your beach days in Maui, it’s sure to be with activities that excite the whole family.  

Defying Gravity with Maui’s Ziplining Adventures

Looking to elevate your Maui adventure with some high-flying experiences? Take to the skies with Maui Tropical Plantation’s family-friendly ziplines! As the only zipline on Maui that can accommodate children as young as 5, this fun-filled activity guarantees excitement for everyone. Soar over mango and papaya groves, through towering palm trees, and past tropical lagoons as you slide across their five side-by-side ziplines. With rides that span 300 to 900 feet and guides narrating your journey with insights about the farm, the experience is both educational and exhilarating. Get a bird’s eye view of bi-coastal ocean expanses and sweeping mountains on this one-of-a-kind ziplining experience in Maui when you visit them on your spring break vacation.

Unique Cultural Experiences 

If you want to add a layer of authenticity to your Maui spring break, try incorporating some cultural experiences into your stay. At Whaler’s Village, you’ll discover a host of events aimed at educating the public on traditional Hawaiian art and life. From ukulele lessons and hula classes to coconut frond weaving basics and even wildlife talks on native marine life, you can find it all right in the heart of west Maui – much of which has reopened since the devastating fires of 2023.

For a more customized activity, Haku Maui offers lei-making workshops that teach you traditional techniques and provide you with a stunning end product you’ll make and take with you. Packed carefully, your lei can be dried and cherished forever as a keepsake from your Maui visit.

Lastly, for an entertainment-packed cultural activity, Maui offers several luau experiences that demonstrate traditional cooking, music, and dance and are great for the whole family. From hands-on learning to wide-eyed wonder, Maui’s beautiful culture is displayed throughout the island. No matter how you experience it, it’s sure to give you incredible memories of your family-friendly spring break.

Maui’s Makers: Must-Visit Farms and Museums

Traveling over spring break is a great opportunity to find educational activities that spark curiosity and encourage discovery. From island farms to local museums, getting a behind-the-scenes look into daily island life invites you to live like a local and feel what it’s like to be a part of our close-knit community during your stay. These Maui makers offer some of the best family-friendly activities on the island:

  • Maui Alpaca – From picnics to treks or just simple feeding and petting visits, Maui Alpaca invites you to mingle with these friendly and social creatures. Learn all about the history of the alpaca, the work the farm does to encourage education, and even create your own fiber art from their incredibly soft coat, all when you book one of their family-friendly tours and visit them in Upcountry Maui.
  • La Kahea Community Farm – For an educational experience with a side of delicious island treats, book a tasty tour at La Kahea Community Farm. Enjoy ice-cold sugar cane juice and delicious fresh fruits as you explore the grounds and learn all about the terrain and farming practices of the region. You’ll also get to take home a gift you won’t find anywhere else!
  • Surfing Goat Dairy Farm – Another Upcountry favorite, the Surfing Goat Dairy Farm lets you customize your visit to the experience that best suits your family’s needs. From cuddling baby “kids” to feeding, milking, or just taking a casual tour of the grounds, you can get as hands-on as you like. After your tour, be sure to check out their delicious goat cheese and artisan truffles for a delectable end to your visit.
  • Sugar Museum – While not a farm itself, the Sugar Museum provides a fascinating look at Maui’s agricultural history and the role it played in the sugar cane industry. If you’re visiting Maui the last weekend of March, stop by their Family Day celebration March 30th from 9am-1pm. This free event will feature plantation games, crafts, demonstrations, music, and more!

Unlock your senses with these unique farm and museum visits as you experience Maui through the lens of its artisans and historians.
