One of the most beautiful places on Earth (though I suspect this could be said of all of the Hawaiian Islands), Maui is blessed with stunning natural wonders. Whether hiking above the clouds in the surreal cinder desert of Mt. Haleakala, snorkeling or diving in a colorful coral garden, driving the fantastically twisty road to the unspoiled town of Hana, or just laying back drinking rum from a cut pineapple, Maui is a place that makes you feel abundantly blessed to be endowed with all five senses.

Maui was the first Hawaiian Island I ever visited, worked and ending up living on for a while. Even after all this time, it's still the best all-in-one island for travelers to visit, if you're the kind of person who wants to see and do a bit of everything. Go hiking around the cinder desert of Haleakala, snorkel in the eroded offshore crater of Molokini, take a winter whale-watching cruise to see humpback whales breech, drive the jungly Road to Hana (or even better, the rugged Kahekili Hwy or the road around Kaupo on Haleakala's back side) and watch the pro surfers and windsurfers near Hookipa Beach. Ambling along the oceanfront boardwalk at sunset in Lahaina, the now-touristy but still historic whaling port and royal Hawaiian compound town, just never gets old, no matter how many times I'm there. For a great day trip, take the catamaran over to neighboring Lanai island to snorkel at Manele Bay.

I've spent a lot of time in Maui, and Initially I pooh-poohed it because it wasn't "Hawaiian" enough. In time, that's why I came to love it. It's beautiful, safe, and with plenty of attractions and amusements Westerners will enjoy.

Where do I start? Maui no ka oi! Rated the number one travel destination in the world, Maui has it all and then some... The cradle of Aloha; the island in the middle of largest known ocean in the Universe, the valley isle between the tallest volcano from sea-floor to the top... Maui is amazing. The people, the places, the food, the amazing recreation. Maui has it all. Eh, I'm a fan of Maui.

Maui is one of those perfect places. Its not adventure travel. Its not exotic. But it is truly beautiful and relaxing. There are 3 main areas on the island where people stay - the Lahaina-Kaanapali area features beautiful beaches, lots of restaurants and high-rise hotels. Kihei as a town is a bit less charming, but the beaches are superb and generally sheltered from the waves. The north shore is less touristic and more wild - the wind surfing, big wave surfing and the local hippy scene can be found here. While the beaches here are beautiful, they are plagued by afternoon winds that can kick up sand and high surf. If snorkling or diving are your things, there are great options here - south of Kihei and around Blackrock both offer amazing snorkling options!Recommended for:Family Travelers

My 2nd time in Hawaii was in Maui, that's where I fell in love with the islands and decided to move here. Known as the "Valley Isle", it's beautiful scenery, friendly people, abundance of water activities and hike trails, slower pace of life, and never ending amazing sunsets are what I love. I learned to surf, saw whales, hiked behind a waterfall, jumped inside a fresh water cave, touched black sand and rocks, hiked a volcano crater, saw the most amazing sunrise and sunset at 10K+ft elevation, traveled by myself, and met some amazing traveling friends for life.

You must experience Maui if you haven't been to Hawaii.
It is lush, has a volcano, pristine beaches and lots of golf courses.
I prefer Wailea to Kaanapali.
In my opinion the beaches are better ans although there are tourists it seems the hotels are not on top of each other.
You will need to rent a car to fully experience the island.

How could I not give Maui the maximum amount of stars. I moved here 12 years ago and I've been here ever since. I may leave one day but I will always come back to visit. Once you experience the magic of Maui, you can't stay away for too long.
