Where to Get The Best Hawaiian Shave Ice in Maui, Hawaii

Let’s face it. Vacations to Maui are the best of the best. Where else in the world can you catch a sunrise on a mountain, surf in a bay in the afternoon, and watch a sunset against the backdrop of humpback whales jumping in the Pacific Ocean? That’s what we thought. And while all these are great activities to make Maui a must for your travel itinerary, there’s one other adventure on the island worth mentioning, and that happens to be hitting your favorite shave ice stop during your stay.
