Maui - "The Valley Isle"

Anyone who has ever visited Maui will likely vouch that this Hawaiian Island escape delivers everything it promises at every level. Locals agree, with their “Maui No Ka Oi ” mantra translating to “Maui is the Best.”

Conde Nast Traveler readers attest to this as well, voting Maui “Best Island” for a milestone 20th consecutive year. With stunning natural beauty, sunny weather, “bucket list” activities and rich culture, how could it miss?

Neither too small nor too large, this tropical island exudes a smooth attitude that rambles from former plantation towns to Upcountry ranches to grand golf courses and spas. 

Legend holds that Maui’s sunshine tends to linger longer. That’s especially enticing for adventure addicts who can drive above the clouds for a summit sunrise atop Haleakala Crater, grab a plate lunch in Makawao, marvel at aerial windsurfers off Hookipa Beach, and then catch a sunset cliff diver plunging into the Pacific off Kaanapali Beach. Or ferry to Lanai from Lahaina Harbor and spend the day four-wheel driving, shooting sporting clays or horseback riding.

For the ultimate day trip, grab your camera and driving mojo for the 620 hairpin curves and 59 open-lane bridges on the dramatic Road to Hana. Still undeveloped, the isolated paradise takes you back in time with its rural charm, pristine scenery and hang-loose spirit.
