The name Maui conjures up images of people lounging on sun-soaked beaches, surfing monster waves, and snorkeling through pristine blue waters. But the island is also full of many secluded spots that have been untouched by the modern world. Maui Hawaiian Village lets visitors step back in time and discover one such pristine, remote location and get a glimpse into native Hawaiian life.
It takes a drive and a short hike to reach the village itself, where an active restoration of a historical valley is in progress. Surrounded by a lush forest, majestic mountains, ancient rock walls, waterways, and Hawaiian agriculture, visitors learn about the island's culture and participate in hands-on activities. These activities allow visitors to personally experience the Hawaiian lifestyle and introduce them to plants native Hawaiians have used for food, shelter, and clothing. Groups can even sample small bites of freshly picked food from the land while reflecting on how Hawaiians have thrived for generations on nature's bounty.
