Maui, “The Valley Isle", is widely considered the most diverse of the Hawaiian Islands, combining world-class resorts with unrivalled scenic beauty. West Maui, featuring Lahaina, Kaanapali, and Kapalua, is one of two primary resort areas on the island. The other is South Maui, made up of Kihei, Wailea, and Makena. The secluded eastern shore is known for the tiny town of Hana, where you can witness the unspoiled beauty of historic Hawaii. Review all the available Maui accommodations when you’re ready to experience all that Maui has to offer.
For those seeking tranquility, rent a car and drive the famous Hana Highway, a spectacular route listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Buy a guidebook or cd beforehand to make sure you don’t miss anything on the way. The adventure will take all day, as you’ll want to stop to admire the shimmering waterfalls, bamboo forests, tropical gardens, and scenic viewpoints along the winding two-lane road. Another great excursion? Drive to the summit of Mount Haleakala. You’ll stand above the clouds overlooking the volcanic crater, surrounded on all sides by the natural beauty of Haleakala National Park--the sight is truly surreal.
If you’re more interested in sampling a slice of Hawaiian history, look no further than West Maui’s main town, Lahaina. This lively oceanfront village has a rich history as a whaling town, now offering delightful restaurants, shops, and art galleries that are open late into the evening.
