Crown Jewel of Maui

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
Family-friendly places like Ka'anapali Beach and Zipline will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Wailuku (Iao Valley & Maui Tropical Plantation), Wailea (Keawakapu Beach, Maluaka Beach, &more) and Helicopter Tours (in Kahului). And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, take a stroll through Lahaina Front Street, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Maria Lanakila Catholic Church, and experience rural life at Punakea Palms.

The Valley Isle
The second largest of the eight major Hawaiian Islands, Maui features a rugged landscape ranging from high mountain peaks to deep valleys. Half of Maui lies within 8 km (5 mi) of the coastline, and most tourists come for the sandy beaches, many of them backed by fashionable resorts offering every modern convenience. Diversity of tourist attractions is Maui's major allure, with each of the island's shores offering a different set of vacation ideas. You can swim with dolphins, snorkel with sea turtles, or hike over the otherworldly landscapes of the world's biggest dormant volcano. A foodie paradise, the island also features dozens of small farms and gourmet restaurants.
