What’s the best vacation you’ve ever had? What aspects do you enjoy the most when you’re planning a trip to somewhere you’ve never been before? Well, if you’re one of those travelers who love to get the most out of their vacations then we have the perfect option for you.

Here at Akina Tours & Transportation, we have a special custom island tour available that’s suited to fit your needs called the “Taste of Maui” tour. During these group tours, you’ll get a little “taste” of a specific area, that you choose, so you can leave feeling like you’ve known the place your whole life.

One area in particular that is certainly worth exploring on Maui is Kaanapali. Kaanapali is probably best-known for its three miles of white sand beach along the clear, blue Pacific Ocean. Year after year this area is voted as “America’s Best Beach,” and it continues to be a destination location for visitors as it’s home to luxury resorts, famous restaurants and pristine golf courses. However, what you probably don’t know is that this area has plenty of Hawaiian history and local legends along with it. Before there were buildings and roads, this area was home to historic events, Hawaiian alii (royalty), local legends and more. For instance, you may have heard about the famous Black Rock where locals jump and dive off a large rock formation into the water. That area is actually properly known as Pu’u Keka’a, and cultural tradition says this is a sacred spot where those who have passed on would go from the physical realm into the spiritual world.

Fascinating, right?

Well, during our Taste of Kaanapali, you can learn more about the local Hawaiian legends here while also exploring the area’s fabulous landscape. Check out the delicious menu at Leilani’s on the Beach, stop by for Happy Hour at Roy’s, and dip your toes in the sand at the Kaanapali beach. Get a mix of the old with the new during a tour designed specific to your tastes with Akina Tours & Transportation.
