As many of you know, Olowalu Plantation House is one of our top 3 wedding venues in Maui, Hawaii! This beautiful area located in West Maui has a uniqueness about it. With the grand West Maui Mountains on one side, and the Pacific Ocean on the other, this makes for the perfect spot to tie the knot! Olowalu itself, is a very small town on this island. The homes in the area are spread out on the mountain and ocean sides. Most homes have land separating each from their neighbors. Across the street from Olowalu Plantation House, you will find a little area with some shopping, eating and more. Keep reading to discover the fun activities in Olowalu Maui Hawaii!

The Maui Butterfly Farm

The Maui Butterfly Farm is a fun and educational experience! Take your little ones here to play and learn! You will have just as much fun as they do. The owners of the farm come from a private Oxford (UK) education specializing in Animal Science and Agriculture. They are passionate about saving the declining butterfly population here in Hawaii as well as educating those around us on how to create and maintain a healthy environment here in the Islands in order to help them as best we can.  You can learn about how to do your part and stop them from rapidly disappearing throughout the Islands as well as the US mainland.

Butterflies bring joy to everyone around them. The farm’s hands on tours promote education. Not only education about the environment but education regarding insects, the benefits of butterflies and the ways in which to take care of our ‘aina (land) here in Hawaii.
