Maui, known as the Valley Isle is a small island with diverse settings. The extinct volcano Pu u Kukui created West Maui while east Maui was formed by the now dormant Mt Haleakala. Tropical rainforests in east Maui turn to alpine terrain. The western slopes of Haleakala are desolate lava fields going down to beautiful beaches. The contrasts of the settings make Maui a truly unique experience.
Travel the jungle-like terrain to the east and Hana, "the last Hawaiian place". On an island known for its beaches one must see Wailea Beach and Kaanapali Beach, both known for their golden sand. While visiting Maui, forget the sun and surf of traditional Hawaii and visit the 10,000-foot volcanic crater. Whether it is taking the road to Hana or visiting Haleakeala National Park, Maui offers a variety of Hawaiian adventures.
