Top Attractions on Maui

The community of West Maui is recovering from the wildfires that devastated Lāhainā. Many businesses are no longer in operation or are temporarily closed. Please check their websites for the most recent information.

Maui, also known as “The Valley Isle,” is the second largest of the islands and home to some of Hawaii’s most famous locations. On Maui, you get a little bit of everything — from small surf towns in the tropics of Hana, to luxury living at the resorts in Wailea, to white sand beaches and lively harbors at Kaanapali and Lahaina. Here are a few of our suggestions for the top attractions on Maui.
