As one of Maui’s few working plantations open to the public, the Maui Tropical Plantation is one of the island’s best tourist attractions.
Explore the plantation, take a guided tour, ride the tram, zip down a zipline, and visit the large gift and souvenir shop. The Maui Tropical Plantation is a great place to learn about the Hawaiian culture, while relaxing in an at-your-own-pace environment next to the West Maui mountains.
It’s open 7 days a week, and there’s plenty of free parking.
