Maui

“The Valley Isle” of Maui is swiftly becoming one of the world’s premier playgrounds by offering the perfect blend of climate and scenery in a relaxed ‘country/cosmopolitan’ atmosphere.

One of the most popular visitor sites on the island is the town of Lahaina, notable for its missionary heritage, as the former capital of Hawaii, and as the center for the whaling industry in the 1880s and the world’s largest banyan tree. Kaanapali Beach, Wailea and Kapalua all offer an array of some of the most luxurious resort hotels, restaurants and boutiques to be found anywhere in the world. If swimming with turtles sounds like fun you cannot go past snorkeling at Turtle Town, it’s one of the most popular and recommended snorkeling destinations in all of Maui. Turtle town is located along Maui’s south shore between Makena Landing and Maluaka Beach. For those who prefer a slower pace, there’s Hana, a quiet ranch town at the extreme eastern end of Maui. Situated at the end of a scenic twisting road riddled with water falls, Hana offers the ultimate in idyllic isolation. Maui’s most impressive natural landform rises high above the island in unparalleled splendor, Haleakala. It’s a dormant volcano on the eastern side, measuring 10,023 feet above sea level. Its crater is a massive nineteen miles wide and is large enough to hold all of Manhattan Island. Maui is also where you’ll find the notorious surfing area called ‘Jaws’ where the brave hearted ride monster waves. lf you would like to take in an unforgettable sunrise and see Maui from above the clouds then travel to the top of Hateakala, you can also cycle the twenty seven mile downhill track to the coast. Other landmarks to see on Maui are the 1,200 foot tall mountain pinnacle, lao Needle, and Molokini Islet for some more amazing snorkeling or scuba diving.

Maui has many memorable moments especially for couples, such as the unforgettable serpentine like road to Hana. Take a leisurely stroll along the Kaanapali Beach Walk and have a look in the shops at the Whalers Village, or go under the waves in a yellow Atlantis Submarine. Watch the sunset while sipping on a cocktail at one of the many restaurants in Lahaina. If you are looking for something a little more upmarket you could dine under the stars at the Hale Pilialoha at the base of Black Rock or dine in style aboard the Maui Princess.
