You’ve heard people talk about Maui before. The second-largest of the Hawaiian Islands is peppered with multi-coloured beaches, unbelievable scenery and five-star resorts, making it a getaway with a lot to love. Those looking for a little R&R can find peace at a tranquil spa or the beach side while adventurers can go whale-watching, hiking through the Haleakala National Park or take a road trip on the winding road to Hana. Regardless, Maui is full of attractions as its stacked with surf spots, volcanoes and enough spiritual experiences to keep vacationers coming back to the same destination for years to come.
Every Hawaiian island offers something different and Maui provides a luxurious tourist-friendly experience designed for families, couples and solo runs. Just don’t fall for the popular (and authentic) Old Lahaina Luau. Tickets for it are nearly $100 per adult and you’re almost better off covering the island by car and taking in the diverse terrain. Take one step off your incoming flight, inhale the smooth ocean breeze and just try say the words “I want to go home”.
