Maui - The 'Best Beach' Island
Find Out All You Need for Your Maui Vacation!
Just say the word 'Maui' and you immediately think of a place where the sands are golden and worries left behind. We can tell you it's all true. If the beach is your thing, Maui is your Island. It's the Best of Both Worlds, too. Less crowded & developed than Oahu, but more shopping & dining options than Kauai or the Big Island. Maui also has some of the best whale watching in the world. People come from all over the world just to glimpse these giants of the depths. We've got even more reasons to come to the Valley Isle, like culture and an active nightlife, and they start below!
The One Sunrise You Must See
Seeing the sunrise from Haleakala is something everyone should see. Not once, but many times. As return visitors have found, no 2 sunrises from this place are the same. Yet all are awe inspiring. For some, this sight alone makes their trip to Maui worth it.
Yet there's more to Haleakala than early morning views. This crater has an otherworldly appearance that makes it One-of-a-Kind. It's no wonder many find low murmurs of wonderment to be the only appropriate reaction as they look out on the crater. You'll have the same response.
Maui - Home of 4 'America's Best Beach' Winners!
There's a reason for the expression 'I'd rather be on a beach in Maui'. Beautiful beaches are on every Island, but there's justification to say Maui's are the best. Kapalua Beach, in fact, was the very first winner of the title 'America's Best Beach'.
Since then Kaanapali, K.T. Fleming & Wailea Beaches have won that award as well. This is prime sand.
One reason many prefer Maui's beaches is they are protected from the bigger waves by the neighboring Islands of Lanai and Molokai. This results in calmer waters and a better experience for most swimmers. A definite plus for families with young ones.
