Day 3, we woke up bright and early to make the most of our day. First up was snorkeling. We heard from others that the southeastern coast of Maui was great for snorkeling. The first area we went to was Ahihi Keanau Reserve. It turned out to be a really rocky area with no beach. The water was slightly cooler here as well. We got to see some fish, but not a whole lot. After a while, the kids wanted to leave, so we went exploring along the coast.
We ended up at south Maui's longest beach, Makena Beach (aka Big Beach). The waves that day were perfect for body surfing, so that's what we did.
We stopped off at Horhito's Shrimp Taco truck for lunch, pretty much one of the few meals we ate out. Our favorites were the shrimp tacos and the fish tacos. Our family got to spend a little bit of time on our own. We checked out a tourist stand and got to have our first shave ice of the trip. YUM!
We spent the rest of the afternoon just lounging around at the beach house.
