QMaui no ka oi! This phrase means "Maui is the best!", and there's a very good reason people say it. Maui is just one of Hawaii's many islands, but it's arguably the most beautiful and offers some of the most wonderful experiences.

Maui is stuffed with great hiking trails, gardens, parks, and fun water games. Then of course there are the scenic views that compel you to pause whatever you're doing and admire them.

Does Maui sound like a place you'll want to see? Geauxing Places Travel will gladly book your trip there. We're a full-service travel agency from Denham Springs, Louisiana, and each year, we take vacationers to Maui and back again. It's now your turn to experience what countless others before you have.

The list you see below highlights 3 of Maui's best parks. From the attractions you'll see and the things you can do, you'll love what they offer you and the entire family!

Haleakala National Park

This park is massive. It's almost as popular as it is large. Haleakala National Park is one of the most popular parks in Hawaii, and you'll soon see why.

The natural attractions there are enough to make it a feast for the eyes. For one, this park is home to the highest peak on the entire island-over 10,023 feet! That's a sight on its own, but it's not the only thing there you should be looking forward to seeing.

The different climate zones, the fascinating and unique flora and fauna, the brilliant sunrises and beautiful sunsets are all things that make this island a treat for any vacationer.

Iao Valley State Park

Do you know what a remnant of a volcano looks like? Head to the Ion Valley and you'll find your answer there: It's called the Iao Needle, an ancient rock puncturing the valley floor.

The Iao Needle itself is 2,250 feet high but as remarkable as it is, it's just one of many amazing things about the park.

There is quite a bit of history surrounding this region too. From ancient battles to conquests, you'll see places like the Kepaniwai Heritage Gardens that speak of an ancient and significant period in Hawaii's history. And you get to see and learn about it all.

Wai'anapanapa State Park

If you can get over how difficult it is to pronounce this park's name, you'll see how great a place it is. We'll start off with the beach located in the region.

It's called the Honokalani black sand beach, and even though we don't recommend you swim there because there's no reef to break the force of the waves, there's still much for you to do on the beach.

There's a cave there, and exploring it is perfectly safe, not to mention exciting. The narrow cave keeps widening until it eventually opens up to give you a striking view of the ocean at the other end.

What else awaits you other than the beach? Foliage twisted by the wind, sculpted lava rocks, lava caves and tubes and, believe it or not, a blowhole in the rocks not far from the shoreline.

These are just 3 of the numerous parks in Hawaii. Contact Geauxing Places Travel from Denham Springs, Louisiana, and we'll get you to Hawaii. You'll see and experience these amazing places in person, and only then will you see just how much our words pale in comparison to the real thing.
