Last Updated

Hawaii is the perfect place to get really good TikToks. Islands like Oʻahu, Kauaʻi, and Hawaiʻi have the best scenery and natural vibes to make any TikTok video look way better. Maui, though, has some of the sickest places perfect for your next filming. The island is the most populated, with epic attractions like ziplining and black sand beaches. On top of that, the island has some of the best food, so while you’re there, stop by a 7-Eleven. If you’re not really into TikTok, check out these places anyway. They are pretty awesome for any type of traveler.

Check out this list of the top five places to film your next perfect TikTok in Maui. The island boasts some of the prettiest backdrops for your next video. We can’t guarantee these spots will make you an influencer, but they’ll give you some major bragging rights next time you talk about traveling.

If you’ve never been to a black sand beach, check out Wai’anapanapa State Park. The beach has a lava tube, a blowhole, and black sand! The sand turned black due to a volcano back in the day and now has some of the dopest Instagram and TikTok opportunities. If you want to check it out, you must make a reservation 24 hours beforehand and pay for parking. You only get about three hours inside the park, but it’s worth it. It’s along the road to Hana, and once you get here, you’ll catch major vibes. It’s world-famous, so there might be other TikToks about it, but don’t let that stop you. You just have to be more creative. The park also has some historical and indigenous aspects, so pay your respects if you go.

Pipiwai Trail

Located at the end of the road to Hana in the Haleakala National Park, the Pipiwai Trail is known to have really sick locations. There are a billion waterfalls here, and one of the last parts of the trails leads you to a bamboo forest that looks straight out of Japan. The bamboo forest is our top pick for a good TikTok video, but if that isn’t your vibe, check out the Waimoku Falls. The shots you’ll get here will be major. The trail lasts about four miles, and we recommend wearing good hiking shoes and tons of mosquito spray. This area is known for heavy downpours so ensure you are ready for wet weather.

Molokini Crater

Three miles off the coast of Maui, you’ll find the Molokini Crater. It’s an ancient volcanic cone that rises 300 feet from the ocean. Getting there will be more challenging than some trails, but it’s completely worth it. Make sure you have a waterproof phone or camera because getting a TikTok video here will require you to jump in the water. If you dive, you’ll get sick shots of ulua fish and the coral reefs. Sure, sharks will be there, but that will make your video cooler. Be careful if you visit; the reefs are delicate and can be damaged by unfamiliar divers and travelers.

Kapalua Zipline

Considered one of the best ziplines in Maui, the Kapalua Ziplines are a 2,300-foot-long zipline above a tropical forest going as fast as 55mph. Tickets range between $100 and $220 for different types of line tours, but it’s completely worth it. If you don’t drop your camera, getting shots up here will be dope.

Haleakala National Park During Sunset 

If you’re a golden hour fan, you must check out Haleakala National Park during sunset. The park has some of the best shots while the sun is down, and being here during that time will be like a dream. Driving to the top of Haleakala, a climb of about 10,000 feet that will take about an hour and 30 minutes, will give you some of the best over-the-cloud sunset views on the island.

It’s perfect for any type of TikTok video. Tickets are about $30, and you’ll have to reserve a time for sunset since it gets popular. Dress warmly because the elevation will make it chilly.
