** Because we are continuously asked how we afford to travel so much, we decided to include our favorite travel campsites on this blog, and hopefully help guide you into saving hundreds of dollars on your next vacation. **
The average low star hotel night in Maui starts between $200-$250, however camping you can find as low as $20 per night.
Camp Olowala – $20 per person, per night
We paid $120 for 3 beautiful nights in Maui, at campsite #33
*Compared to $600+ for three night anywhere else ($480 savings).
Things we loved about this camp.
– Personal Beach Access (you’re camping on the beach)
– Modern Clean Toilettes, and Showers
– On site managers and quiet nights listening to the waves crash under the stars.
Things we didn’t like.
– Personally this didn’t bother us, wild chickens scatter the camp and perhaps in the morning you might hear a rooster crow, but not too annoying that it ruined the stay for us.
How to get there:
From Airport, relaxed 30 minute drive, check out map quest directions here.
Navigating the rest of the island took about 10-40 minutes for most locations,
our longest being 2 hours to Hana–which already takes awhile because of road conditions.
– After setting up our tent, this was the view to our personal beach.
– We had our Tahoe SUP inflatable paddle boards, but if you don’t have travel boards, there is a rental company right next to the camp. The reef right off from our beach was amazing, and we spent the mornings chasing colorful fish and sea turtles!
