There are plenty of entertaining activities to indulge in on Maui. This island is filled to the brim with adventure and many who live here or who simply come for a visit are amazed by all the various options available to explore our relaxing Hawaiian island. Whether your idea of adventure includes cliff climbing or rock jumping, or you prefer to view the island from the comfort of your beach chair, buying into Maui luxury real estate to be near it all is always a great choice.
One Hawaii activity in particular that offers a unique way to create a lasting memory is stargazing. High-elevation views above the clouds with zero light pollution. The island of Maui is one of the best Hawaiian islands in the world to explore the cosmos. Ten-thousand feet above the ocean on Haleakala is the island’s Institute for Astronomy. The summit of the mountain is above one-third of the Earth’s troposphere and is one of the top places in the world to view the stars. And while the telescopes here are some of the most advanced in the world, you don’t have to be an astronomer to see them.
Just below the Haleakala National Park, around 4,500 and 6,500 feet elevations along the Slopes of Haleakala, are amazing stargazing spots with incredible Maui views. Some tour companies provide excursions at this location to give you a chance to witness and learn about a variety of planets, stars, constellations, the Moon and the Milky Way.
While contemplating the universe from one of the world’s tallest mountains is a bucket-list must, there are other ways to see the stars on Maui. Consider taking a night cruise or research Maui stargazing at nearby resorts and participate in an educational tour.
There’s no wrong way to do Maui stargazing, so why not give it a try? Speaking of trying new adventures, are you exploring the idea of purchasing Hawaii real estate on the island?
