A Hawaii Honeymoon or Family Vacation to Remember

Sunsets In Paradise is perfect for your romantic getaway or family vacation. Whether you�re looking for a hidden snorkel spot off our beach, family fun in our pool, or quiet reflection, watching the tide, turtles and sunsets, Sunsets In Paradise has a lot to offer.

Maui vacations are set around beaches, there are over 42 miles of them. Sunsets in Paradise is near many of the best beaches in the world. We are nestled between the resort areas of Ka�anapali and Kapalua. Both have lovely beaches, with many amenities. There are many other hidden and not so hidden beaches to explore around the island. Olowalu near mile marker 13 is a family favorite with its gentle waves and shallow waters, perfect for play.
Ho�okipa is a favorite for windsurfers, turtles and monk seals. The famous black sand beach at Wai�anapanapa state park. There�s Big and Little beach in Wailea. The unofficial rumor is, Little beach is known for those who like a little less fabric and more skin for their swimming attire. (Although, nude beaches are not permitted in Hawaii) There are even green sand and red sand beaches along the road to Hana.

The Road to Hana, 52 miles of curvy ocean road and one lane bridges. It is not as harried a drive, as it once was, but it is best to allow a full day for this beautiful must see. It is full of breathtaking landscapes, refreshing waterfalls, even a church built entirely out of coral. Pack a picnic to eat at Wai�anapanapa state park or one of the other lovely stops along the way or stop for lunch in Hana town. You can continue on to Oheo Gulch for a dip in the sacred pools, on the back side of Haleakala National Park. Go a little farther to Charles Lindbergh�s gravesite at Palapala Hoomau Church. Please be respectful.

Have you ever wondered what Mars, or the moon looks like? Visit the crater at Haleakala National Park to get an idea. The summit is 10,000 feet above sea level, offering unmatched views. It is approximately 20-30 degrees cooler up there. It is wise to take warm clothing. Be on the lookout for the Nene, the state bird of Hawaii. They are endangered. There are many hiking trails to explore, too. You can stop Upcountry in Kula or Makawao for lunch and see what these quaint towns have to offer.

Restaurants -
Many dive shops can arrange snorkeling or scuba diving excursions to the Molokini crater. The crater offers many different snorkel and dive environments, from shallows to a shear wall. Above the water, it�s a bird sanctuary. Rather catch the fish than just look at them. Many deep-sea fishing charters leave from Lahaina. If you time your visit just so, you can see Hawaii�s other winter visitors, the humpback whale. They arrive mid-December and stay until the beginning of May to escape the cold waters and give birth to their calves. There are so many other amazing activities, from kayaking to zip lining, from horseback riding to surfing. You are guaranteed to have a memorable time.
