Things to Do in Maui with the Family | For an Unforgettable Vacation

Our toddler canโ€™t and shouldnโ€™t go parasailing in Maui. Yet we find parasailing on most Things to Do in Maui with Families lists. Now that we call Maui our home, my wife Erica and I decided the internet deserved a proper Things to Do in Maui with Families list that is actually helpful for parents.

We did something different this week. Our video pairs with our article. Since we have 65 activities on our things-to-do with the family article, we figured no one wanted to watch us do 65 activities. So we shared our favorite things we did with Henry, our 2-year-old son in this video but go to the article below for the full list of 65 Things to Do in Maui with Family.

You will find links, prices, and other ideas to keep your family entertained on Maui, so you will have an unforgettable Hawaii vacation!

There is so much to do on Maui on a budget. This list is also a good Things to Do in Maui on a Budget list since our full list of 65 activities have a lot of free things for kids and adults. Like how many budget-friendly things to do?
๐Ÿ 32 activities are free for kids 2 and under.
๐Ÿ 20 activities are free for adults and kids.
๐Ÿ 33 activities are $30 or less for the family.

  1. Mahalo for watching! We had a lot of fun filming this video. We have more Maui activities to do so subscribe for more Hawaii fun.

  2. In the video, you mention Ku 'au Bay as the place to go to see sea turtles (#39), but on the Maui Kids list on the website now (5/2021), #39 talks about seeing turtles at Ho'okipa Beach Park. Is Ho'okipa the "more crowded beach with fewer turtles" that you refer to in the video? Do you still recommend Ku 'au Bay instead?

  3. Thank you so much for this. I will be traveling to Maui with my husband and 2 toddlers at the end of May and everything I kept coming across was so frustrating !

  4. The prettiest, secret beach is Slaughter House Beach. You have to park on side the highway at what looks like a straight drop cliff and walk down some very steep stairs and trees and it opens up to Slaughter House Beach.

  5. Hello guys! We just saw you at the light and wave you ! We watched all your videos and we are so thankful for your tips and videos because we have 2 kids ๐Ÿ˜Šand we didnโ€™t know what to do ๐Ÿ˜Œthank you so much for your great job ! โค๏ธeverything you guys said we did ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  6. I have always loved this channel. My husband I recently took our 5 kids to Oahu in December. But in 4 weeks we will be enjoying our favorite island of Maui. With all 5 kids and grandma. We can not wait !

  7. I'm seriously in AWE of how much palpable Love, research and time that was put into creating such a wonderfully entertaining and insightful video. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU & Aloha๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’œ

  8. Guys you are amazing! First time in your channel and I have watched a few videos already, so refreshing ^_^ One thing I have to say, what if you make some videos about the places/hotels in Hawaii islands that are pet friendly for those travelers that take their dogs with them and want to explore the beautiful Hawaii islands with their beloved canines ^_^ haha. Blessings!

  9. So glad I found your channel! We were supposed to be on Maui last week for our family vacation ( and our 7th visit to Maui ) so, instead, weโ€™ve been enjoying your videos the last few days, especially the bike ride through Lahaina…itโ€™s so odd to see it so empty but we loved the whole vibe, from the music to the slow laid-back pace of the video. You visited some of our favorite places in this video too, I hope your channel continues to grow, thanks for the great content…stay well over there! ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜„
