Travel Guide

Maui

Hawaii’s “Magic Isle” is known for its terrific beaches, blue water, abundant marine life, the volcanic Haleakalā National Park, quaint towns and scenic drives.

Nature lovers pick Maui for its wildlife, volcanic craters and rolling hills, while active people come here for hiking, golfing and watersports. No matter what your interests are, Hawaii’s “Magic Isle” is a dream destination. The 80 or so beaches are inviting, the water is warm and the countryside is lush.

Maui is serviced by the Honolulu International Airport. Shortly after landing, you can start exploring Maui’s nearby capital of Wailuku. This quaint commercial center is the gateway to 'Iao Valley. If you visit in winter, travel west to visit historic Lahaina for whale-watching. This time of year, surfers flock to Honolua Bay in the northwest for big barrel waves and professional competitions. Relax in award-winning resorts, such as Kaanapali Beach, to make the most of the ever-pleasant weather in this tropical paradise.

In summer, when the water is calmer, enjoy snorkeling and diving off Kapalua Beach, which also has attractions for kids. Head south to Keawakapu to find another family-friendly beach, or continue to the beaches of Maluaka or Wailea to spot green turtles. Nearby Makena State Park has three very distinct beaches and a volcanic crater. Set sail to the crescent-shaped atoll of Molokini for bird-watching or scuba diving.

From Makena, travel east and get above the clouds at the Haleakalā Crater (House of the Sun). Visit at dawn for one of the best views in the whole of the U.S. The diverse ecosystem of forest and volcanic rock that unfolds in front of you is where Maui originated. Before heading back to Wailuku, make the epic coastal journey with hairpin turns, waterfalls and bridges all the way east to Hana.

A vacation in Maui can be expensive, but many people feel it is a small price to pay for paradise. Whether you are honeymooners seeking romance, families with energetic kids, hard-working couples looking to relax and youthful thrill-seekers, Maui shares its magic with everyone.
