In Maui we basically soaked up all the down time and food we could before it was back to the real world. Our favorite place to eat on the trip would definitely be Mama’s Fish House. It’s a splurgy meal, but everything we had from the service to dessert was on point. It can be a little tricky to get there if you don’t have a car, so I would recommend to schedule out an Uber for 2 hours after your reservation. We wined and dinned longer there than I would have expected, plus you want to check out the property before the sun goes down too!
If you’re staying on Wailea Beach, I recommend to rent snorkeling gear and swim along the lava rocks in between the two beaches. There are sea turtles everywhere! Unless you really want to spend $80 I would pass on the “guaranteed sea turtles” paddle boarding/snorkeling tour. We went snorkeling at about 9:30 and saw plenty!
Of course where there’s shopping at the front of your hotel, you have to check out the shops too! I ended up splurging on a new cross body bag I’ve had my eye on because it was 25% cheaper than back at home plus the tax is a little less too #justified. Like I need another brown cross body, but my mom has been using mine for the last year so it’s basically hers now 😉
Unfortunately the breakfast at our resort wasn’t comparable to the two previous resort stays, so both mornings afterward we walked to Longhis which had a cute vibe and yummy brunch selection. Eat all the pineapple you can on the islands, and just know the food is going to be more expensive than you’re used to!
This romper is a great price right now, and if you have a warmer fall climate you can pair it with booties and call it a day. I would recommend sizing up if you can go between sizes, it’s a little short for my comfort zone. Also, how cute is Tim in his little sea turtle shirt we got from Tory Richard?! I guess there are a few positives to delayed baggage 😉
