About Maui

Maui is the number one island in the world, according to “Conde Nast Traveler” and its readers’ votes. In fact, Maui has held the title of “Best Island” for seventeen years. One of the first things you’ll want to do on a visit to the island is stop at some of its popular beaches. Kaanapali Beach is one prominent stop, and you’ll want to make sure you drop in here for the daily cliff diving ceremony off of Black Rock. You may also want to swing by Makena Beach, known commonly as “Big Beach” for its size, to enjoy the sand and surf.

Maui is an island that is filled with many naturally occurring wonders, as well as amazing beaches.  It is a popular destination, because of its smaller full-time population and incredible sites. Some of these include:

  • Lahaina’s seaside streets
  • Beaches of Kaanapali
  • Haleakala National Park
  • Upcountry Maui
  • Arts and culture in Kahului
  • Humpback whales off the coast of Maui
  • Breathtaking waterfalls
  • Views atop Haleakala

Each of these locations and activities is incredible, which is why Maui continues to be such a highly rated travel destination. However, you really do need to see it with your own eyes before you’ll ever understand the magic of Maui.

The sightseer will love Maui for its diverse offerings, as well. Molokini is a top snorkeling location, so if you want to see what’s going on below the water’s surface, this tiny island to the southwest of Maui is a can’t miss destination. Or take a gander at how things look up above with a hike to the summit of Haleakala; it’s the perfect place to catch a sunrise.

For some local culture, you’ll want to make sure you stop by Lahaina. Just off the coast, you may be able to spot humpback whales, which helps explain why the region was once the global center of the whaling industry. You can also take a walk on the self-guided Lahaina Historic Trail, or relax at an authentic Hawaiian luau, where you’ll enjoy all sorts of traditional Polynesian and Hawaiian dances and foods.
