travel : hawaii planning

travel : hawaii planning | madeline made

i am so excited….we finally planned our much-needed vacation this year and our destination is…HAWAII!  we plan to go to maui and spend most of our time there. we want to experience both the western ‘desert’ side in wailea and eastern ‘tropical’ side of the island in hana.  my parents often tell me about how they visited maui when my mom was pregnant with me and now i will be returning again. it is hard for me not to plan a lot of things to do and see, but i know we both need time to recharge; so i will do my best not to type out an itinerary….


do you have any hawaii recommendations? i would love to hear what islands you recommend, where you stayed, beaches to visit, or any other tips you might have!

  1. We LOVE Hawaii! We are traveling back to Hawaii for our sixth time this January 🙂 and we are headed to Maui as well!!! Kauai is our favorite island and Maui is a CLOSE second.

    Glad you are going to check out Hana, it’s awesome. Napili Beach on the west side is great (our favorite beach on Maui) and don’t forget to check out Big Beach on the south end. Ka’anapali Beach is another great beach and there are many restaurants close by. I have a lot of info about Hawaii on my blog–if you get a chance you, feel free to stop by and see if any of our adventures peak your interest! 🙂


    • thank you so much krystle! such great advice since we have never been! we are excited to get a mix of both parts of maui and will check out the beaches you recommended.

      your blog is really great – looks like you have done your fair share of travelling 🙂 will be using your site as a guidebook! thanks for stopping by.
