Maui is considered by many travelers to be one of the top attractions on the Hawaiian Islands. It’s known for its energetic culture and beautiful scenery. There’s no keeping Maui a secret any longer. But because Maui has become such a popular tourist destination, you'll have to deal with crowds while you experience the Valley Isle. Luckily, there are a few ways that tourists in Maui can avoid going to overcrowded destinations. Here are some tips to help you avoid the crowds in Maui.

Head To The Mountains

Many tourists in Maui forget to go see the mountains. The mountains in Maui provide tourists with an opportunity to go hiking, experience waterfalls, and get one with nature. You'll also have the opportunity to take in some amazing views. Visit Haleakala National Park while you're in the area.

Volunteering

You can spend some time helping out at one of Maui's nonprofit organizations. Volunteering allows you to practice the Hawaiian philosophy of Aloha Aina. By volunteering, you'll also gain access to special places such as Honokowai Valley, that residents are normally prohibited from viewing.

Road To Hana

Do not miss out on all the stops that make the Road to Hana an exciting experience. There are multiple towns that you can explore. And you may just get a little time at the black sand beach and hiking trails to yourself. Road to Hana tours in Maui are available with IMI Tours.

Small Markets

Shopping in Maui can be very expensive. If you'd like to save some money and skip a potentially long line, stop by a local restaurant such as Eskimo, Candy or Poi by the Pound. You can enjoy great food at an affordable price without dealing with a long line.

Secret Beach

There are several secluded beaches in the area. Hamoa Beach is often uncrowded, and gives you a perfect place to relax. Try to head to the beach early in the morning, as there will be fewer people out.

Leisure Activities

Ho'okipa Beach is an underrated tourist attraction. You can view the sails from the lookout point before exploring the tidal pools. Stop by the Kite-boarding School of Maui. You'll learn all of the basics about kite-boarding, so that you can enjoy this fun activity. If you enjoy cycling, stop by Go Cycling Maui in Paia.

Lodging

The Paia Inn is near several shops and restaurants. You can purchase a three bedroom beach house with a lanai attached to it. The minibars serve Maui style potato chips. The Inn at Mama's Fish House offers housing with Polynesian themed furniture and paintings. The Opakapaka beach front suite offers several appealing views of the ocean.
