Maui is the best, Honolulu, Hawaii
Reviews > North America > United States > Honolulu > Maui is the best
Maui's diversity will amaze and delight you. You’ll marvel at cascading waterfalls, the remote village called heavenly Hana, the picturesque Lahaina, a National Historic District, where history and fun combine to create a ‘must see’. You’ll discover the Marine Preserve of Molokini, teeming with exotic sea life, and the majesty of Haleakala crater. Upcountry is another world – with alpine meadows, working cattle ranches, and the charming town of Makawao. Every land, sea, and air activity you can imagine; incomparable golf on fifteen championship courses; world-class shopping; award-winning Hawaii Regional Cuisine; delightful small towns like Wailuku; hip beach havens like Paia and Kihei – Maui’s wonders never cease. And surrounding everywhere, forty-two miles of glistening beaches meet the blue Pacific, where each winter thousands of Humpback whales come home to breed and give birth.
In Hawaii they say “Maui no ka oi”, which means, simply, “Maui is the best”.

Besides fine arts you can view exhibits of genuine Polynesian... Read more »
