Find Out About Maui
Come to an Island legendary for its calming sands, front row whale watching and active nightlife!
Maui is known as the 'Valley Isle', but could just as easily be called the 'Beach Isle' for its many famous shorelines. Along with the 4 winning 'America's Best Beach' titles, other Maui beaches have made the Top 10 list repeatedly. You'll need at least a few days to sample just some of the 'Must See' beaches. It may even take a few trips. One thing you can count on - it'll be worth the time.
When you're ready to finally pick up your blanket for the day and have some night fun, you've got options. The greatest selection is in Lahaina, especially in Whalers Village, a complex of shopping, dining and entertainment that sits right on Kaanapali Beach. Time your day right and all you have to do is walk a few steps from the surf to start your evening shift of dining and partying. You can make it even easier by staying steps away at the Westin Maui or Aston at The Whaler hotels.
Lahaina, Where the Nightlife Is Hopping
Lahaina always has music, dining and dancing options once the sun goes down. It's one of the reasons so many make it their place to stay on Maui. Kihei and Kaanapali have their own line ups of tasty restaurants, active nightclubs and bars, some of the karaoke variety, to ensure that the darker part of the day has as much to offer as the lighter hours.
Don't forget the luaus that are feasts for the eyes and ears as well as the stomachs. You'll come away with an experience that truly comes from the heart of the Islands. Music, hula, fire dancers and delicious food. Not a bad way to spend an evening.
Active hours away from the ocean should be spent seeing towns like Paia, Makawao and Wailuku where you'll see the Old Plantation houses and structures still standing, sorrounding you with the Hawaii of yesteryear. It'll make you wish you could take this backdrop home and enjoy it every day. If this sounds the right setting for your time in Maui, then you should check out the Paia Inn Hotel, in Paia, or the Lumeria Maui Retreat in Makawao to try something different.
Packed your swimsuit and towel? That could be all you need for a great time on Maui. Try out some of the best beaches not only in America, but the world, and you'll understand why the locals say with pride 'Maui No Ka Oi' ('Maui is the Best').
