Maui, Hawaii

Best of the Best

Maui is an island of superlatives: the best beaches, the best scenery, the best outdoor adventures, and the best resorts. From the emerald peaks that tower over Iao Valley to the streets of historic Lahaina, it lives up to its stellar reputation. Here, long stretches of pristine sand line the coast, waterfalls cascade into shimmering pools, and trails wind through lava flows and bamboo forests.

But the Valley Isle has more to offer than natural charms—top-notch restaurants, world-class spas and a rich culture complete any visit to the island. You can learn to dance the hula, experience a traditional Hawaiian luau, savor some Maui pineapple and so much more, making this one trip together you’ll never forget!

Dive In!

Maui’s extensive stretches of beautiful beaches will give you plenty of chances to soak up the sun or enjoy the turquoise ocean around you. Colorful reefs surround Maui’s shores, so grab a snorkeling mask and dive in! You’ll swim through crowds of tropical fish and maybe even spot a turtle or two.

Island Culture

As the one-time capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom and the former center of the whaling industry, Lahaina is filled with a sense of history. Get to know this seaside town’s colorful past by strolling along lively Front Street.

Great Heights

Venture 10,000 feet up to the summit of Haleakala, the massive volcano that dominates the eastern part of Maui. From the top, you can take in the enormous crater, as well as spectacular views of the surrounding landscape.

English is the main language of the Hawaiian Islands, but you will find some old Hawaiian words intertwined into the language. Hawaiian is a very simple language, using only the five vowels and these seven consonants: h, k, l, m, n, p and w. Every syllable ends in a vowel. The accent always falls on the next-to-last syllable. The following are some commonly used Hawaiian words.
