the great explorer La Perouse wrote in 1786 "The aspect of the Island of Mowee (sic) was delightful (and) produced inexpressible charms to our senses."
You are drawn to Maui for many reasons. You’ve heard about the island’s incredible beaches, its nearly 365 days of lush sun-drenched splendor and its world-famous resorts. You know about its championship golf courses and tennis venues as well as its many award-winning restaurants, shops and boutiques catering to the most discerning and offering the best in exquisite and unique art, fashion and jewelry.
Maui No Ka Oi! is a term you hear the first time you experience this beautiful island anchored in the deep blue Pacific, thousands of miles away from continents and the hurried lives most people lead. That’s when you say, “Yes, I agree, Maui No Ka Oi, Maui IS the best!”
Whether you simply want to relax on its pristine beaches; catch waves surfing, paddle boarding, or wind surfing; swim, snorkel or scuba dive along the island’s stunning coral reefs; or choose sport fishing, hiking, golf, tennis, yoga, or Zumba, Maui has it all at your finger tips.
Whale watching from late November through late April is an absolute must-do and of course, witnessing a sunrise atop Maui’s 10,200 ft. dormant volcano, Haleakala, will leave you breathless in a glow of beauty beyond words.
And when it comes to outstanding restaurants, suffice to say the choices are endless with menus to rival any resort destination in the world; as do the island’s organic markets, health food stores and delicious natural juice bars.
Maui’s botanical gardens, zip-line tours, horseback riding, parasailing, historical landmarks and museums, superb live theater and music, renowned ocean aquarium, sunset dinner cruises, day spas, sight-seeing tours, winery and coffee farms are just a few more of its the many popular attractions.
In other words, as a vacation or a life-style, it’s really true, Maui No Ka Oi!
