Stand Up Paddle Boarding Maui: Give it a Try During Your Stay at Lahaina

There are many exciting adventures to be had during your vacation in Lahaina, Maui. You can go swimming, whale watching, kayaking, surfing, snorkeling, scuba-diving, or even parasailing. If you’d like to try something out on the water, but you’re not feeling adventurous enough to try surfing, stand up paddle boarding Maui is a great option. Here are a few reasons that this relatively new sport may become your favorite pastime.

It’s Really Fun

Stand up paddle boarding is really fun. There’s something magical about skimming on the surface of the water, looking down into the crystal-clear water below. When you see wildlife below you (like sea turtles or bright tropical fish), you’ll catch a glimpse into nature that you’ve never seen before.

It’s a Great Workout

Stand up paddle boarding is a full body workout. Because you’re standing up, you’ll strengthen your core, legs, and arms, while also working on improving your balance and flexibility. And, the best part? You won’t even realize you’re getting a workout!

It’s Easy

Many people shy away from stand up paddle boarding, because they think it requires a lot of skill and technique. But, it actually is quite easy. Be sure you get fitted with a board that is for a beginner, and you’ll have no trouble exploring the coves and inlets around your condo.

It’s a Great Way to Explore

Stand up paddle boarding is a wonderful way to explore the coves, inlets, and shore outside your condo at Lahaina Shores. You will be able to venture farther out than if you were just swimming, and you’ll be able to explore up and down the shoreline – keeping an eye out for wildlife along the way.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding Maui: Book Your Adventure

Lahaina Shores is the best accommodation for your family vacation in Maui. We are located centrally, allowing you to explore the historic town of Lahaina, shop at unique stores, and enjoy fantastic dining – all within a short distance of your stay.

Check out TripAdvisor reviews of Lahaina Shores Beach Resort

Guests love the spacious oceanfront condos of Lahaina Shores Beach Resort! And the convenient location just a stroll from what you want to do in Lahaina Town.

Here’s one recent review among dozens on TripAdvisor. A guest from Illinois stayed at Lahaina Shores in mid-December and posted many details:

“Lahaina Shores stood out because it actually has its own beach and the price was rather good. We booked directly through their website. We had an updated oceanview one bedroom studio on the 3rd floor…The front desk was great about bringing extra towels when requested. The kitchen was well-equipped (including with a French press, which is awesome for making some Kona or Maui coffee)…We could leave the lanai door open at night to listen to the waves. The beach sand is rather soft, but you will want beach shoes if you venture out into the ocean as it does get rocky. The pool area was nice with many chairs available for use and there was a hot tub. The heart of Lahaina (including the harbor, banyan tree, and many restaurants) is only about a 10 – 15 minute walk…We found our stay to be relaxing and peaceful and would definitely consider staying here again in the future.”
