If you're in search of a scenic drive on Maui but don't necessarily have the time allotment (or energy) to take on the Road to Hana, we suggest making the convenient and beautiful drive to Maui Tropical Plantation, located centrally in Waikapu near the base of the West Maui Mountains.
This 60-acre working plantation was actually a former sugarcane farm, which today hosts some of the most unique tour options and events on Maui, including a tropical tram tour of the property with a coconut husking demonstration, zipline adventures with Maui Zipline Company over farms and across the Majestic Waikapu Valley, shopping at four separate stores, fresh produce and fruit from Kumu Farms, a fresh coconut stand, two onsite restaurants, two bars, scavenger hunts, outdoor live music concerts, free movies under the stars, and more."
The grounds are absolutely gorgeous, and the friendly and helpful staff make this a fun day excursion for all ages. For the ultimate experience, spend the day exploring the property and stay to enjoy a cocktail and dinner from award-winning Chef, Jeff Scheer, at The Mill House Restaurant. Live music performances and events are regularly scheduled at The Mill House, so check their website for the latest happenings!
We look forward to more big things to come from the Maui Tropical Plantation, and highly recommend it for a day escape from the crowds and heat.
