Stand above a sea of clouds high over Haleakala. Watch a 14-metre whale breach off the coast of Lahaina. Lose count of the waterfalls along the road as you manoeuvre the hairpin turns of the Hana highway. One visit and it’s easy to see why Maui is called “The Magic Isle”.
The second largest Hawaiian island has a smaller population than you’d expect, making Maui popular with visitors who are looking for sophisticated diversions and amenities in the small towns and airy resorts spread throughout the island.
From the scenic slopes of fertile Upcountry Maui to beaches that have repeatedly been voted among the best in the world, a visit to the Magic Isle recharges the senses. But like every good magic trick, you’ll have to see it for yourself to believe it.
