Check out these tried-and-tested activities for a Maui babymoon. These are my top picks of things I want to do when pregnant on Maui. From lounging on the pristine beaches to indulging in world-class spa treatments and exploring lush landscapes, Maui offers an amazing blend of relaxation and excitement.

So let’s dive right in…

1 – Indulge in Some Relaxation and Pampering

A babymoon is all about unwinding, so be sure to treat yourself to some well-deserved relaxation.

Maui is renowned for its world-class spas, where you can enjoy rejuvenating massages, prenatal treatments, and peaceful meditation sessions. Let go of stress and embrace the tranquil atmosphere to nurture your mind, body, and soul.

One of My Favorite Maui Spas is Ho’omana Spa up in Olinda. It has a the most zen vibe and all the lomi lomi and treatments I’ve gotten here were amazing (and I go pretty often). It’s a down-to-earth, garden-setting kind of spa that connects deeply to Hawaiian tradition and roots. They chant before your massage and even make their own massage butters and botanical essences.

For a special kind of experience you can also book is a lomi lomi lesson so you and your partner can learn to massage each other.

Another really fun experience is creating your own DIY cosmetics at Leiohu Cosmetics bar. It starts with an aromatherapy journey of essential oils that I find deeply relaxing and then you get a hands-on experience blending your own body oils, scrubs, or face masks from fresh Maui ingredients.

Making your own ginger body scrub and cocoa butter massage bar is perfect for pregnancy!

2 – Explore the Natural Beauty of Maui

Another great one on the list of activities for your Maui babymoon is hiking! Maui is a paradise for nature lovers, and exploring its breathtaking landscapes is a must.

Take gentle hikes through the lush Iao Valley State Park, stroll along the pristine beaches of Kaanapali, or experience the dramatic beauty of the Road to Hana on a drive. The journey is the destination, so don’t feel like you have to make it all the way to Hana. Even just making it half-way for ice-cream at Coconut Glens and a walk through the luscious Garden of Eden are worth it!

Another favorite gentle hike or rather walk is Honolua Bay. You’ll take an even dirt path through rain forest to the bay. It’s like being in another world. And it’s so easy, you could do it with a good off-road stroller. Don’t forget mosquito repellant, though!

3 – Savor Some Tropical Culinary Delights

Maui is a culinary haven, offering a diverse range of delectable cuisine.

Indulge in fresh, tropical fruits, sample local delicacies, and treat yourselves to romantic dinners at beachfront restaurants.

A must-do on your list of Maui Babymoon activities is the a romantic sunset dinner, and there’s no shortage of restaurants offering just that. My favorites: Ka’ana Kitchen, Morimoto, and Pacific’O. Here’s an in-deth guide to Maui’s Best Oceanview Restaurants.

4 – Enjoy Peaceful Water Activities

While certain water activities may be restricted during pregnancy, there are still enjoyable experiences in the ocean.

Take a leisurely swim in the calm waters of Baby Beach (there are two on Maui: Lahaina & Paia), embark on a peaceful sunset cruise, or simply bask in the warm Maui sun while lounging on the sand.

Floating in the water is one of the most relaxing and blissful experiences when you’re pregnant!

A peaceful, close-shore snorkel is also fun. Remember to prioritize your safety and consult with your healthcare provider before participating in any water-based adventures.

5 – Shop Maui’s Adorable Baby Fashion Scene

Maui isn’t just a destination for sun-soaked beaches and stunning scenery—it also offers fantastic shopping opportunities, including adorable baby and kids boutiques.

Take a break from lounging by the ocean and explore local shops and discover a treasure trove of charming baby clothes, accessories, and toys.

Blue Ginger and Droplets are two of my favorite kids’ boutiques on Maui! From Hawaiian-inspired prints to organic cotton essentials, you’ll find a range of options to dress your baby and children in style.

Soha Living also has a selection of children’s toys and swaddle blankets.

If you’re crafty and like to sew, don’t forget to stop by Sew Special in Kahului for an amazing selection of Hawaiian, batik, and in-general super sweet fabrics! Cute attack!

So don’t forget to add a shopping trip to your list of activities for a Maui babymoon.

6 – Embrace the Farm-to-Table Experience

One unique aspect of Maui is its vibrant agricultural scene.

During your babymoon, consider adding a farm tour to your itinerary. Immerse yourselves in the island’s farm-to-table culture and gain a deeper appreciation for sustainable farming practices. Visit local organic farms and learn about the cultivation of exotic fruits, aromatic coffee beans, and tropical flowers.
