Maui is the second largest island in the Hawaiian Island chain, but number one in the hearts and souls of the people who travel there. Very easily the best island in the world, it’s a little piece of paradise full of adventure, excitement, history and natural beauty. In fact, it was recently named the “Best Island in the World” for an unprecedented 11th consecutive year in the Conde Nast Traveler readers poll, beating out Bali, Bermuda, and Mykonos in Greece.
Welcoming about 2.5 million visitors annually, Maui is the second-most visited Hawaiian Island, behind Oahu.
Maui is mesmerizing. On the island, there are thousands of magical things to do and see. You will find yourself literally chasing rainbows and showering under waterfalls. Watch amazing sunsets from mile-long beaches or listen to local bands playing ukuleles while a hula dancer with a plumeria behind her ear dances to the rhythm. Visit ancient Hawaiian heiaus (temples) or explore Maui’s whaling history in Lahaina. Taste macadamia nut-crusted opakapaka, a delicately flavored pink snapper, while sipping on a lilikoi (yellow passion fruit) margarita.
We absolutely love Maui and enjoy visiting the island almost every year. This website is an attempt to bring our copious research and detailed notes to everyone.
Explore the site. Hope you will find something that you like.
