Maui has been voted “best island in the world” again and again by the readers of Conde Naste Traveler magazine. No where else on earth offers the diversity of beauty, exciting activity, and lavish luxury of the island of Maui.
The major airport is in central Maui in the town of Kahului. Most resorts are on the west side of the island, from the old whaling town of Lahaina and the beaches of Kaanapali to the golf course villas and resort hotels of Kapalua. The other major resorts are south, in the Wailea area, with a number of older condos in the town of Kihei. Popular day trips include excursions into the Hana rain forest or daily snorkel tours to Molokini or across the channel to the island of Lanai.
