It's hard to describe Maui as anything short of the stuff that dreams are made of. This tropical treasure is one of the most sought after vacation destinations in the world - and rightly so. Its emerald green lushness beckons discerning travelers with a sensual island draw. In Maui, romantics fall in love, adventurers become energized and all visitors leave with a sense of having experienced perfection. The magnificent volcano, Mt. Haleakala, dominates the island from over 10,000 feet. Its lush slopes are home to some of the rarest wildlife and exotic birds on the planet. But it's the island's rewarding balance of seclusion and sophistication that steal your heart. The crystal clear waters have their allure as well, with surfers and watersport enthusiasts coming from all across the globe. Maui's culture also delivers great delights, with museums, galleries, delectable dining and rich history. Be sure to visit Lahaina, a quaint 19th century whaling village that illuminates one of the most inspiring periods in the island's history.
