Celebrating the 4th!M
The Sayles team unanimously agrees there is only one way to celebrate the 4th of July on Maui and that is going to the beach for an all day bbq! We recommend heading to the beach in the afternoon for an late afternoon, that way you can end the day watching a natural fire work show just as the sun sets!
While we all agree on the beach for the 4th, we have differing views on what beach is the best. Here are some our favorite beaches across the island:
- Maui’s 3 Best Beaches according to TripAdvisor
- South Maui’s Best Beaches
- Kamaaina style: Maui’s North Shore’s Best Beach
- Enjoying West Maui’s Best Beach
