The Valley Isle


The winter home of humpback whales, breathtaking mountains and the scenic Road to Hana, this island of romance and natural wonder has become one of the most popular destinations for guest from around the world.

Nicknamed “The Valley Isle,” Maui is known not only for its breathtaking valleys, but also for its soaring mountains, crystal clear waters, tumbling waterfalls, and incredible scenic vistas. From Haleakala, rising more than 10,000 feet (3,000 m) above sea level and the go to spot to see the sun rise over the clouds, to Molokini, a remote ancient volcanic islet that is home to incredible snorkeling and scuba diving, and the Road to Hana with its 52 miles of twists and curves, Maui is a scenic wonderland. During the winter months, the waters surrounding the island become the holiday home of migrating humpback whales, and there is nothing quite as amazing as seeing these majestic mammals in their natural environment. On land, the island boasts fields of lavender and sweet pineapple, artisanal distilleries, and world class dining with cuisine that spans across the world.
