When I was in high school, someone I knew took a trip to Hawaii by himself and I remember feeling really bad for him, because a solo trip to such a romantic destination must be terrible, right? That was before I had experienced the benefits of solo traveling firsthand, and after years of doing it, I started to envy him for going to such an amazing destination on his own. Ultimate freedom in a place as raw and adventurous as Hawaii sounded like a dream come true.
When the opportunity came up for me to work on a photography project in Hawaii, I jumped at the chance to check it out solo, confident that more than a honeymoon destination, Hawaii can be a great solo female travel destination, too. Turns out that it totally is! These are some of the best activities in Maui, plenty of which will give you opportunities to meet other travelers, and enjoy a few solo adventures too:. The Road to Hana has quickly become one of the most popular activities on Maui since it takes you through some of the dreamiest landscape on the island, including waterfalls, black sand beaches, jungles, and a bamboo forest.
I did this one alone, and was glad to have all of the time and space that I needed to really do it justice in the way that I wanted to. Without a navigator, that help was invaluable. I have a bunch of tips here for how to do the road right, to get away from other tourists, and to have a more pleasant drive!
Maui Surfer Girls made me feel so comfortable with the whole experience. The waves on the side of Maui that they teach on Olowalu Beach near Lahaina are nice and small, the views of the green mountains as you ride the waves in are beautiful, plus I had plenty of room to learn. To my surprise, I was already standing by my second wave, and rode two all the way in during my two-hour lesson.
Having the female-friendly, non-competitive environment that these lessons provided just made me feel good, and the surf camps they offer make it easy to meet other female travelers too! This was actually my first activity on the island and I was surprised by how easy it was to make friends on the boat. Even though people were there with their ificant others, they were friendly and I ended up chatting with and making friends with people right from day one. I also found the crew to be particularly friendly and easy to talk to, which made the whole experience great as a solo traveler.
The Molokini Crater is a crescent-shaped, partially submerged volcanic crater that is pretty famous for snorkeling and even diving. For me, the boat ride was the best part as being on the ocean is one of my favorite things in life. Jumping into the warm water, spotting an octopus, and swimming around just added to the fun. The food was excellent, the wine and beer were free-flowing, and it included a pickup and drop off at my hotel. Some of these links are affiliate links. Your trust always comes first.

The company you went with sounds great! I was nervous too and then once I tried I was like, okay that was way more fun and less scary than I thought.
What was I actually worried about? Love this. So New Zealand again next year and Hawaii for i think. I was surprised at how easy it was to meet people. Love every bit of it. Sounds like an awesome trip! I would definitely love to go there, Hawaii is a great destination for honeymoons but boasts just as much for single people. Yeah definitely give the islands their time! What a great guide! Maui is so much fun…. HumaHuma is one of my fave spots!!! I heard the spa is amazing! Fantastic things to do on the island.
The snorkeling bit is appealing to the adventurer in me tremendously! And trekking to that incredible jungle would be perfect as well! Great tips! My first trip to Hawaii I spent six weeks there solo and loved every minute. There are some great hostels on Maui in particular including Banana Bungalow and Aloha Surf Hostel which include free tours every day. Thanks for the hostel ideas! Lovely post and beautiful photos. We just returned from visiting in October and we fell in love.
It was totally worth it. I love snorkeling but would be afraid to go it alone. Any recommendations on groups? Besides Molokini….. This post is exactly what I was looking for! Thanks so much for the tips. Even more excited for it now. How long did you stay there? I have days to plan for. Considering island hopping. I actually picked up a couple of hitchhikers myself!
I am planning to do solo trip to maui but not sure on which side of the island to stay. The cheapest is hostels in Kahului or paia but then I have to go around from there! I rented it on my own. Just get the cheap car! I came across you blog and I have read everything you posted about Hawaii, and found it to be interesting. Is there an island that you would recommend over the others? I was thinking of going to Maui. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I love them all for different reasons. Maui will have lots of other people as would Kauai. The big island is super adventurous and fun as well but, well, bigger.
I also spent a really good time there during my last summer holidays and came back with a lot of pleasant memories. After visiting the island a few times with family, I now want to travel their alone Great reading your article. I would like to know more about your asment and how you partnered with the Hawaiian tourism board.
I myself am a professional wedding photographer who travels on off seasons. They contacted me to help them promote Hawaii to my audience. I think they were particularly interested in that part of it. Tap to watch my vlogs on YouTube! Pin me!

A few solo female travel tips: Safety: Thankfully Maui is pretty safe and most crime is limited to petty theft. Just make sure that you lock your rental car book here! By the way, despite what the guy at the rental place tries to upsell you, a compact car on Maui will do you just fine. Meeting others: It might be easier than you think. Consider using social media: If you have an active social media like Instagram or Snapchat, you might be able to find people that way. If not, use sites like Couchsurfing. Where to stay and eat: The Grand Wailea — wow If you fancy: The Grand Wailea : The rooms and grounds are out of this world, and the staff will customer-service you all day.
Their restaurant, Humuhumu had delicious eats. Mid-range: Kaanapali Beach Hotel : Talk about a great sunset spot! This hotel is intimate without being tiny and is a great mid-range option. If not, check out AirBnB for options. Definitely eat at Ono Tacos, a taco truck in Lahaina, for some cheap and seriously delicious fish, al pastor, pollo, and asado tacos.
