We headed to Maui to kick off summer vacation. Gorgeous weather, so much swimming, a 5:30am beach walk because the kids were too excited to sleep, free volleyball finding, parrot holding kind of vacation. A shave ice, boat ride to the best snorkeling spots with sea turtles, cleaning up Holly barf in the car to get to remote bamboo forests and waterfalls kind of vacation. A burritos at sunset on the beach, night swimming at the resort splashing in moon pools, starlight “magic” (little blue glowing dots found in the sand at night) hunting on the beach that I remember from childhood, pineapple eating, mango picking, trespass hiking, blow hole watching kind of wonderful, beautiful Hawaiian vacation.
We stayed at the Westin (thanks to my generous Mother for allowing us to use her points) at Ka’anapali, and I 100% recommend it as one of the best places in Hawaii to stay with kids right on the beach. Safe waters steps from your hotel, beautiful beach, incredible pools/watersides. If you’re visiting Maui, check out Aloha Mixed Plate for dinner, Ululani’s for shave ice, and Ono Tacos togo for the perfect beach picnic. We also had a great and personal experience on our boat/snorkeling trip to Molokini with Sail Trilogy. Aloha!
