The Magic Isle
- Travelers who can go anywhere in the world come back to Maui again and again, because their Maui moments are some of the most treasured of their lives. The majestic leaps of Maui's humpback whales are the perfect symbol for the magic of this island, where natural wonders set your spirit free and the warm aloha of Maui's people fills your heart with a sense of belonging.
- Lahaina, the first capital of the Hawaiian kingdom, was also a rowdy port-of-call for whalers of another time. Today, much of the town is a National Historic Landmark. Amidst 30 restored historical sites, you'll find a fascinating mix of art galleries, restaurants and exciting clubs.
- Although Lahaina is the center of Maui's night life, there are great restaurants in romantic spots all around the island. Many feature Hawaii Regional Cuisine, one of the most talked about cuisines in the world.
- Maui's prime resort areas are Kaanapali, Kapalua, Kihei, Wailea and Makena. Strung like jewels on the sunny western and southern shores of Maui, they offer pristine beaches, golf courses and recreation areas. At serene, secluded Hana, you'll discover Hawaii the way it used to be.
- The best golf in paradise is yours to enjoy on Maui. There are challenges for players of all skill levels and incredible views no matter where you play, from the public courses to the championship layouts of Maui's Golf Coast. Plus, nowhere else in the world will you find the array of oceansports and activities that Maui offers.
- Then there are the 42 miles of world famous beaches, ranging from Kaanapali Beach, to the little jewel of Red Sand Beach and the black sand beach at Waianapanapa State Park. The best snorkeling is at Honolua Bay or the small islet of Molokini, a submerged crater.
- For the nature enthusiast, Maui has breathtaking hiking trails. The Hawaii Nature Center in Iao Valley is a good starting place. The rangers at Haleakala National Park lead free nature walks, both at the 10,000 foot
summit of Maui's awe-inspiring, long-dormant volcano and at Oheo Gulch with its famous Seven Pools.
- One of the best ways to experience Upcountry Maui is on horseback. The green pastures and sweeping vistas will remind you of range land in Wyoming. And Makawao town provides a taste of the "Old West."
- Discover the fascinating artifacts of Maui's ancient culture at the Bailey House Museum or explore the island's heiau ruins (Hawaiian religious temples). If you get a chance, don't miss the performance of hula kahiko
(ancient hula) by one of Maui's hula halau (hula schools).
- For an unforgettable vacation that will rejuvenate you, body and soul, come to Maui and find out why people in Hawaii say, "Maui no ka oi...Maui is the best."
