Maui: Just the name evokes images of a tropical paradise. The second-largest Hawaiian island, Maui is home to a whole array of very different micro climates. Lush rainforests and rugged volcanic highlands, rolling pastures and black sand beaches: you can find it all within easy reach of the many Maui hotels.
Out and About in Maui
Hotels near Kaanapali will give you access to this popular beach and historic shoreline area. Be sure to visit Black Rock, an ancient landmark on Kaanapali Beach that's wrapped in local myth and legend. Nearby Lahaina, once a whaling village, now focuses on galleries and upscale shopping --all within view of the calm waters of Auau Channel. Lahaina is also the happening center of Maui's nightlife, and it draws enthusiastic crowds from around the world. Hotels in Maui also offer tours and information for venturing farther afield, into the extraordinary natural world of the tropics, and you should definitely take time to visit Haleakala National Park. Home to more endangered species than any other national park in the entire United States, Haleakala provides a stunning opportunity to view animals you'll never see anywhere else.
Eating and Drinking
Staying at Maui resorts will shower you with an abundance of fresh fish, shaved ice and astonishing local fruit. From Maui beach hotels you'll be able to walk to award-winning waterfront restaurants. Enjoy a stellar view of the sunset from one of these top spots while sampling seafood scallops, lobster cakes and pink snapper.
