Discover world-famous beaches and more on the “Best Island.” It won’t take you long to discover why Maui has been voted “Best Island” by readers of Conde Nast Traveler for over twenty years. Maybe you’ll fall in love with the unforgettable beaches at Kaanapali and Makena, or the splendor and mana (power) of Haleakala National Park. Perhaps the championship golf courses and the arts and culture of Kahului and Upcountry Maui will steal your heart. If not, the incredible food, culture, and island adventures certainly will.

On Maui, you can see migrating humpback whales and sunset luaus, take mermaid swim lessons, and explore the scenic road to Hana. You can indulge in exotic farm-to-table dining or grab a “plate lunch” and a shave ice like a local. Whatever you choose, your vacation on the “Valley Isle” is sure to be unforgettable. Maui earns the name best island by delivering the full Hawaiian experience to people of all ages.
