HAWAIIAN MYTHOLOGY Ancient Hawaiian chants tell of the demigod Maui who lassoed La (the sun) atop Haleakala (House of the Sun) in order to create longer days for his mother, who needed more time to dry her kapa cloth (tree bark fabric) in the sun. THIS WEEK MAUI

on Maui

Maui is a golfer’s dream, offering visitors a wide range of courses—many of them championship—which are top ranked in the world. Each course features its own unique variety of terrain elements and every one presents stunning backdrops of panoramic ocean views, high mountain slopes, misty rainforest valleys and more. Maui’s golf courses are scattered throughout Maui, Lana‘i and Moloka‘i. Some have been designed by noted golfers and course architects, such as Robert Trent Jones, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. This is the place where the pros come; don’t be surprised if you spot Geoff Ogilvy, Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh, Jim Furyk, Ernie Els, Justin Leonard and others on the greens. The Magic Isle hosts a significant share of important golf tournaments including the PGA Championship season opener at the Plantation Course, Kapalua, and the LPGA Tour at Ka‘anapali Golf Courses. For in-depth lessons and instruction, the David Leadbetter Golf Academy and Kapalua Golf Academy can help. Whether you’re an adult or junior golfer, imagine shooting your best game as crashing waves sprinkle sea foam into the air and some of the most beautiful picture perfect backgrounds in the world!

Explore Maui’s breadbasket

Go upcountry

The fertile volcanic slopes of Haleakala offer a dramatic change in landscape and climate from Maui’s popular coastlines. As rippling waves of sugar cane and dense spikes of pineapples give way to vast spaces of green pasture land punctuated with towering stands of eucalyptus trees, temperatures drop and mist hangs in the air. The combination of volcanic soil, cool weather and moisture has given rise to thriving produce, herb and flower farms. Upcountry is the perfect place for agricultural tours and adventure activities ranging from biking to ziplining. Visit Maui’s only remaining pineapple growing and packing consortium and sample the King of Fruits with Maui Pineapple Tours. In the arid ranch land of Omaopio, tour Surfing Goat Dairy, feed the goats and sample goat cheese delights. In upper Kula, explore an organic lavender farm, endulge in lavender botanicals and eat at the Garden Cafe of Maui Lavender. Bicyclists will enjoy biking down the volcano with Haleakala Bike

Baldwin Avenue in Makawao leads to the north shore plantation town of Paia, which is famous for windsurfing and kitesurfing at Ho‘okipa Beach. North Shore Zipline offers tree-to-tree canopy tours with ocean views. The picturesque streets of Paia are replete with world-class boutiques and an array of international restaurants. Live music can be found any night of the week in this hot spot. The slopes of Haleakala do indeed support a way of life for many isle residents. But be sure to get to the source—Haleakala National Park—and learn more about its significance. Catching the sunrise is the popular activity, but ending your day with the last rays of the setting sun atop the summit is just as rewarding and less crowded as well. Stick around for some star gazing too; the summit is one of the best places in the world to view the night sky. Be sure to dress appropriately and be prepared for all weather conditions. At 10,023 feet above sea level, the peak of Haleakala is the highest point on Maui. Snow is a possibility during the winter months.

The Pacific beckons... Upon landing in the islands, one of your first thoughts was to get to the beach. Well, you’ve made it! Here you’ll find activities guaranteed to please every age range—from a leisure snorkel exploration beneath the ocean surface to high-flying adventures that’ll level up the adrenaline. A note of caution: wherever you venture, be sure to observe all ocean safety guidelines posted at beaches and as ascertained from surf and weather reports, and water activity providers.

Soar above the water Parasailing combines the thrill of floating through the air while being harnessed to a parachute. Glide over the gorgeous turquoise Pacific Ocean as you’re gently pulled by a high-tech speed boat. Get high on a bird’s eye view of neighboring Lana‘i, Moloka‘i and the West Maui Mountains while secured in a one- or two-person harness.

Diving under: snorkel & snuba

Imagine swimming among jeweltone tropical fish and other marine inhabitants. On Maui, snorkeling and Molokini go hand-in-hand. This crescent-shaped islet sits two-anda-half miles off Maui’s southern coast and rises 156 feet above sea level. Designated a State Marine Life Conservation District in 1977, it’s been voted one of the world’s top 10 favorite snorkel and dive spots. Legend has it that the crescent-shaped isle is the result of a jealous rage. The volcano goddess, Pele, had a dream lover, Lohi‘au, who lived in Ma‘alaea. Lohi‘au married a mo‘o (lizard) and in anger, Pele bisected the lizard. The tail became Pu‘uola‘i Hill in Makena and the head turned into the Molokini islet. The hottest underwater activity on Maui is called “snuba,” a hybrid between snorkeling and scuba diving. Enjoy the freedom of breathing underwater with a regulator without the weight of a tank on your back. Instead, a harness worn on the body is connected to a long hose that’s connected to a raft floating above on the water. Explore down under to about 10 feet.

Skim across the ocean surface A jet ski ride involves maneuvering a personal watercraft propelled by jets of water. It has a seat and handlebars for steering, somewhat like a motorcycle ride on water (without the wheels, of course). There is typically room for two people. A kayak for one, two, or three paddlers is another great way to get really close to the water. Vendors may provide tours with knowledgeable guides who provide tips and share cultural and historical facts. Maybe you just want to go on cruise control. Take in the expansive coastline on a sunset or dinner cruise, listening to live Hawaiian music. Or, you may prefer to hunt the ocean depths for trophy fish! THIS WEEK MAUI

Surfing Learning to surf on a longboard is the best way for a beginner to experience the sport. You’ll catch a variety of waves and it’s easier to stand up because of the greater surface area. Other surfing variations include body surfing or boogie boarding on four-foot boards. Another popular variation is stand-up paddle surfing (SUP). It provides a full body workout that engages the core area.

Rejuvenate

on Maui

The tropical life offers the quintessential mode of “letting go,” something easily attained on the beaches of Maui. But consider alternate ways to rejuvenating spirit, mind and body. For example, you’ll find many fine resort spas dotting the island. There are also small establishments offering wellness treatments. Some of the options available include ancient Hawaiian healing methods, the use of medicinal plants, hot smooth stones (wela pohaku), touch techniques like lomi lomi massage or a healing session with a Kahuna (teacher). Whatever wellness treatment you select, be sure to discuss your preferences before booking the appointment.

a journey along the

travel tips Hana Hwy. officially begins in Pa‘ia. Start your journey by 8:30 a.m. with a full tank of gas. Avoid driving at night. hiking •Six miles past Hana at mile marker 45 off Hana Hwy. is the 95-foot Wailua Falls. •Leave Hana by noon if you plan on doing the ‘Oheo Pools waterfall hike. Located in the Kipahulu section of Haleakala National Park, a ranger station has info on where to pick up trail heads. Take the 15-min. Kuloa Point Loop trail down to the ocean or the Pipiwai Trail, noted as one of the best hikes on Maui. It’s four miles roundtrip and goes up to 400foot Waimoku Falls.

Oftentimes, it’s not what lies at the end of a journey that’s as worthwhile as the journey itself. Such is the case with the drive to Hana on Hwy. 36. By necessity you’ll have to take it slow with the road’s 617 turns and 56 one-lane bridges, which takes nearly three hours to navigate—longer if you stop at the numerous sites along the way. The road is one of the nation’s Millenium Legacy Trails established in 2000 to protect historic roads and trails in America. You’ll enjoy waterfalls, parks, panoramic views and trails. Specific stops include Kaumahina State Wayside Park with a deck overseeing the coast; Keanae Arboretum featuring 150 trees; Wailua Valley State Wayside with its taro patches; Pua‘a Ka‘a State Wayside with small waterfalls and pools; and 122-acre Wai‘anapanapa State Park with a small black sand beach, a picnic area, native hala forest, cave, blowholes and camping.

Mofl0

2 w/ MO2 delivers fresh air on every breath. Here’s how it works:

as you know, trading CO2 (exhale) for O2 (inhale) occurs in billions of alveoli cells in the bronchial tubes & lungs, but not in the 4-6 inches from the trachea to the mouth hole—the stretch known as dead air space. A primitive snorkel triples dead air space, so you re-breathe the same air, which is like wearing the same sox or not changing your skivvies. Burning lungs with a heavy heart & head afflict the snorkeler breathing CO2. Do you really feel like sighing in an elevator? Now comes the FRESH-AIR SNORKEL: Mofl02™ with Jarvic IX-style, aortic valvulation & demarcation twixt in & out more tangible than that between church & state! With a doublevalve twin chamber, the Mofl02™ clears easy with a double huff, for no headaches & more umph in your glug. Mofl02™ osmotic convection delivers 99% fresh air on every breath. So GET DOWN & come up to

MoflO O2™

for the day, the week or for keeps.
