Why Is Maui The Best Hawaiian Island?

It’s one thing to decide to spend your vacation in Hawaii. Snorkeling, swimming, and general beach time can be had all day just about anywhere in the state, along with incredible waterfalls and other nowhere-else-on-earth attractions.

Whether you’re looking forward to mountain climbing, visiting historical places, seeing volcano-related sights, or just spending time in the sun, The Hawaiian Islands offer plenty of activities that can keep you busy while you enjoy the amazing scenery and lush rainforest jungles.

But before you book your flights, you’ll need to figure out one question: where?

The Islands

Maui is just one of six major islands in the state of Hawaii:  

  • Hawaii (the island itself)
  • Kauai
  • Maui, including Lanai, Molokai, and Kahoʻolawe (unpopulated)
  • Oahu

Each island has its own unique offerings and reasons for visiting. While some visitors may have the time and resources to visit all of our islands, many have to pick just one.

What Maui Has To Offer

Nicknamed “The Valley Isle”, Maui is the state’s second-largest island.

Maui has the kind of scenery that comes to mind when you think “Hawaii,” and is more accessible. While Maui is a popular choice for visitors, it’s a little less crowded than The Big Island (Hawaii.)

Unlike other places, Maui’s beaches come in a range of colors. The waters around Maui are gentler and easier to navigate, making it ideal for both swimmers and surfers. We have 120 miles of shoreline divided up into 80 beaches, all of them public. Even beaches that border private property are available for public use, along with public parking.

But beaches aren’t the only recreational activities on Maui. Did you know there are 14 golf courses here? The PGA holds its Tournament of Champions here every January at the Plantation Course at Kapalua.

Movie buffs can enjoy the Maui Film Festival every June. With outdoor screening, you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds.

Much of Maui is situated inside the Haleakala National Park. Inside the park is a dormant volcano, as well as the highest point on Maui, where travelers can watch the most amazing sunrise (or sunset) in the world.

All that activity will help you work up an appetite. In Maui, fish tacos are a popular choice. When it’s time for some lunch, find a food truck or other casual place that serves hot fish tacos, freshly baked banana bread, and other local favorites. Foodies love Maui because of the fresh, local ingredients and the wide variety of food available. Whether you prefer casual eateries or a five-star restaurant, Maui offers a big variety of delicious foods made right on the island.
