The Hawaiian Islands

Maui

Stand above a sea of clouds high atop Haleakala. Watch a 45-foot whale breach off the coast of Lahaina. Lose count of the waterfalls along the road as you maneuver the hairpin turns of the Hana highway. One visit and it's easy to see why Maui is called "The Magic Isle."

The second largest Hawaiian island has a smaller population than you'd expect, making Maui popular with visitors who are looking for sophisticated diversions and amenities in the small towns and airy resorts spread throughout the island.

From the scenic slopes of fertile Upcountry Maui to beaches that have repeatedly been voted among the best in the world, a visit to the Magic Isle recharges the senses. But like every good magic trick, you'll have to see it for yourself to believe it

Getting to Maui  

Kahului Airport (OGG) is the Maui's main airport. Many airlines, such as Air Canada and WestJet offer non-stop flights direct to Maui from Canada. You may also fly into Honolulu International Airport (HNL) on Oahu before heading to Maui on a short, 30-minute flight. There is also daily ferry service to and from the nearby islands of Lanai and Molokai.

Main resort towns  

There are a wide range of accommodations on Maui, including high-end resorts, hotels, bed and breakfasts, and rentals. You'll find resorts and hotels in Kapalua, Kaanapali, Lahaina, Kihei, Makena and Wailea on Maui's sunny western coast as well as one resort in Hana in east Maui.

The sunny northwest coast of Maui was once a retreat for Hawaiian royalty and the capitol of the Hawaiian Kingdom. Today, West Maui is home to spectacular resorts, shopping, restaurants, a wealth of activities and some of the most amazing sunsets in the world.

The Honoapiilani Highway takes you from one sun-kissed resort to the next, each with its own personality. Traveling north from Maalaea and the Maui Ocean Center, your first stop is the historic whaling town of Lahaina. Rustic buildings recall its days as Hawaii's busiest port, while bustling shops on Front Street and winter whale watching make it a favorite port of call for cruise ship passengers.

A few minutes more on the Highway and you'll find yourself drawn into the vibrant Kaanapali Resort. Whether you're staying in the area or just passing through, a stroll on the Kaanapali Beachwalk is always in order. Families play on the beach, shoppers buzz in and out, and diners sit back and simply soak in the view.

On this side of the island, resorts melt into one another, and it doesn't take long to lead you to Kapalua, known for championship golf and private getaways. Here, the tone is a bit quieter, with understated elegance.
