The second largest Hawaiian island, Maui is divided into five distinct regions: West Maui (known for Kaanapali Beach), South Maui (known for Wailea Beach), East Maui (known for the Road to Hana), Upcountry (known for the dormant volcano, Haleakala’s Crater), and Central Maui (known for Iao Valley State Park).

Whether you’re staying in a luxury resort in Kapalua, Kaanpali, Wailea, Makena, or Hana; or in laidback campground under the stars, Maui gives you three great destinations in one: Maui, Molokai and Lanai islands. It’s a great choice for unforgettable vacations, glorious destination weddings, honeymoons, and romantic getaways.
