Even saying the name “Maui” makes your heart rate slow down—or at least it feels like it does. It’s a place that doesn’t really need an introduction, a place whose lush verdancy mingling with jagged volcanic rock along shimmering blue seas is both an international icon of natural beauty and an archetype of idyllic R&R. Couple that with stunning snorkeling, staggering surf, and adventures aplenty, and you soon realize that Maui has its reputation for rejuvenation for a reason.
While its certainly earned its keep as one of the worlds best destinations (and has often been hailed as the “Best Island in the World”), there’s much more to Maui than its stunning natural beauty (although there’s definitely heaps of that to take in). Take a drive down the Hana highway, soak in the scenery, and don’t be afraid to take your time—and maybe swing into a few roadside stands along the way. Or, if you’re feeling bold, try your hand at kite surfing, take up spearfishing, or strap into a zip-line and let the thrills roll in! And whether you’re hoping to get all the local poke you can or want nothing but exquisite fine dining, Maui will have just what you’re craving—just don’t forget to pair your food with an epic view.
