Maui Island’s Family-Friendly Areas
West Maui has a great choice of family-friendly hotels close to beaches and attractions. Three miles of golden beaches line Kaanapali’s coast, making it a popular destination for families, surfers and bathers. Kaanapali’s Whalers Village complex has everything from fashion boutiques to traditional Hawaiian dance shows.
There’s more surf at Wailea in South Maui and the clear water off Wailea Beach is teeming with tropical fish, making it a popular spot for snorkellers and swimmers. For time away from the beach, spend time browsing the Shops at Wailea, then grab a bite to eat in one of its relaxed family-friendly restaurants.
Visiting the Maui Ocean Center
Kids can discover the island’s native marine life at the Maui Ocean Center in Maalaea. Watch jelly fish glide around the tanks in the Sea Jelly Gallery and learn how the ancient Hawaiians used to fish and sail in the Pacific Ocean in the Hawaiians and the Sea exhibit. The aquarium’s outdoor Reef Cafe serves a selection of pizzas and sandwiches.
Maui Island’s Child-Friendly Beaches
There’s everything from snorkeling and swimming to surfing and kayaking at Kihei Beach. It’s also one of the many beaches humpback whales regularly swim up close to. The little ones will love Baby Beach in Lahaina, where the shallow waters and calm conditions make it the perfect beach for surf lessons and paddling.
After a busy day exploring, head back to your family-friendly Maui hotel and relax.
