Maui’s Bamboo Forest

On the island of Maui there is a bamboo forest that is a great day hike! Enjoy amazing scenery, a picturesque waterfall, and, of course, the bamboo forest!

Maui, Hawaii

What to Do/See: Rain Forests. The east side of the Haleakala Mountain is all rain forests; lush curvy roads zig-zagging back and forth. The Drive to Hana… is considered to be one of the most beautiful drives in the world.  It would be a shame to be in Maui and miss this amazing drive! Swimming. Waterfalls and natural swimming holes
