What I love about this island and really the rest of Hawaii is that you don't need to do much planning. Let island time kick in and when you feel like exploring just take this list and plan your day.

Here are the top things to do in Maui!

If you're feeling like taking a dip, this is the perfect spot. Make sure you bring your swim suit and towel!

1 – Pipiwai Trail

It's a lot more rugged and raw (portions unpaved) and there were a lot of opportunities to stop and take photos.

2 – The Southern Road to Hana

3 – Ululani's Shaved Ice

Shaved ice is a staple in Hawaii and while this is a chained shop, it is unanimously the best on the island and I completely concur.

I had the pleasure of watching the sunrise twice here (that's how crazy I am) and each time it was completely different.

4 – Haleakala Summit

If you are a lover of sushi and have always wanted to know what it would be like to dine in Tokyo, then you absolutely cannot miss Koiso in Kihei.

5 – Koiso
