Maui the magical island that has been named 'Best Island in the World' time and time again. Crystal waters, golden beaches, beautiful scenery, tropical breezes, swaying palms, award-winning cuisine and world class resorts just to name a few.

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”.

In the following years Honolulu developed much more than other Hawaiian cities and towns like Hilo, Kahului, Lihue, Pearl City, etc. Present-day Honolulu is not only the hub of Hawaiian tourism, it is a full-grown modern city characterized by its multiple high-rises, its excellent transportation network, its business opportunities and its...
