Discover Maui

MauiButtonMaui is a magical island in the Pacific Ocean, the second largest island in the Hawaiian island chain and the 17th largest island in the United States. With average year round temps of 75-85 degrees, 120 linear miles of shorelines, and 81 accessible beaches featuring a brilliantly vibrant range of sand colors, including white, gold, black, green, and salt & pepper, Maui is a pristine tropical paradise. The island has a population of 160,000 people, and is home to the world’s largest dormant volcano, Haleakala, which has a height of 10,023 feet. The five major industries are: Tourism, Sugar, Pineapple, Cattle, and Diversified Agriculture. Every winter, approximately 3000 humpback whales make the tranquil, warm waters around Maui their home. Fun Fact: Hawaii has the highest life expectancy of any state in the U.S. This island is currently my home, and I am in love. 

 Discover some of Maui’s best hikes, activities, beaches, and more, categorized into the island’s main areas.
