Maui is a 'volanic doublet' formed from two volcanoes
that overlapped one another to form an isthmus between them. The largest
volcano is Hakeakala rising to more than 10,000 feet above sea level, making it
one of the world's largest 'island' mountains.
Maui 'Valley Isle' is the second-largest of the Hawaiian
Islands. Wailuku is the county seat with other significant places being
Lahaina, Kihei, Ma'alaea, Molokini, Makena, Wailea, Ka'anapali, Makawao,
Ulupalakua, Pa'ia, Kula, Ha'iku, Hana, and Haleakaia volcano.
Lahaina was the first capital of the Kingdon of Hawaii,
and can be called the most historically significant spot in Hawaii. Along
the historic trail, you learn that its majestic Banyan Tree, which is the
most popular landmark on Maui, is well over 100 years old, has sixteen major
trunks and spans a quarter mile in circumference.
Maui's South Shore is a paradise for beach lovers.
Kihei has some of the best beaches in the world with over 5 miles
of golden Sugar Beach sand and many canoe outrigger boats.
Just offshore from Kalepolepo Park in North Kihei lies
an ancient Native Hawaiian fishpond Ko'ie'ie built well over 500 years
At the end of Kihei is the grassroots Farmers Market
where you can grab a cup of organic Maui coffee, baked goods, seasonal fruits
and vegatables from local farmers. Next door is one of the best spots for
an tasty shaved ice treat.
Ma'alaea, once a sleepy fishing village in between Kihei
and Lahaina hosts a three-acre, world class marine park and aquarium. Right next
door are the Harbor shops and restaurants.
Molokini is a crescent-shaped, partially submerged
volcanic crater which forms a small islet located just off Kihei and
Ma'alaea. It is one of the top 10 dive spots in the world with a lush reef
with excellent visibility as deep as 150 feet.
Makena is home to Big Beach, one of the last undeveloped
beaches on Maui. The soft, white sand and crystal clear water stretches
almost two-thirds of a mile long and over 100 yards wide.
Wailea is Maui's incomparable array of world-class
resorts, sophisticated shopping, dining, and some of the finest golf
courses in the world. It is truly an 'oasis of art' of
both notable local and international celebrity artists. Ka'anapali
also hosts resort, golfing and upscale experiences.
Far from the bustle of the resort areas, the 'other
side' of Maui possesses a lifestyle and beauty that is removed from the
From high on the cool, green slopes of Hakeakala
volcano, one finds Makawao. This small town has managed to
cultivate a unique blend of old and new. One finds a collection
of boutiques unrivaled throughout the Hawaiian Islands.
Ulupalakua is the home of Maui's 150-year-old, 23,000
acre cattle ranch. The Tedeschi Vineyard and winery is found here.
Maui strawberries, other fresh fruits, flowers
and vegetables are found at nearby Kula. Ka'iku offers a stretch of
rainforest waiting to be explored. This village lies just above the world
famous surf spot known as 'Jaws'.
Pa'ia is Maui's historic plantation town. It is
the bohemian North Shore beach town. It is here that you see uneven
sidewalks under awnings and overhangs, boutiques, antique shops, old markets,
one-of-a-kind bikinis to fine art and native handicrafts.
Hana, the heart of Old Hawaii is well known as a place
of awe-inspiring natural beauty and warm hearted people. There are water
falls, flowers, and a rainforest at every turn. More than 19 one-lane
bridges are crossed in a ten-mile stretch of this Hana road. Hana itself
is small, and referred to as the 'last Hawaiian place' by the
One of the best parts of visiting Maui is that one
also experiences the ocean's whales, dolphins, sea turtles, monk seals
and bustling coral reefs.
