Maui is the second largest of the Hawaiian islands and is known for its diverse landscape. A dream come true for those who simply love the outdoors, Maui is also home to numerous natural wonders such as the dormant Haleakala volcano, Keawakapu beach with its golden sand, and Wailua Falls. The surf off the coast of this island is ideal for surfing and snorkeling. Maalaea town is home to a small boat harbor where whale watching and sunset tours set off. It is also home to the Maui Ocean Center, Hawaii’s largest aquarium. Tours to Molokini crater also depart from Maalaea harbor and the town is also the starting point for rappelling adventures in Hana and zip line tours. Here are some of the best VRBO accommodations in Maalaea, Maui.
