Big Beach, Little Beach & other brilliant beaches on Maui add up to an assortment of options sure to please even the most discerning beach comber in your group. From the "best windsurfing site in the world" to the gentle waters of Hamoa, Maui is graced with the kind of beaches Hawaiian dreams are made of.
Escape into island paradise at one of Maui's many outdoor retreats. Dormant volcanoes provide the backdrop—and pathways—at Haleakala, which rises to an impressive 10,000 feet at its peak, and the Iao Needle is a bizarre rock pinnacle tressed in verdant tropical plants.
Waterfalls & Caves
Maui's caves and waterfalls are both beautiful and veritable time capsules. Stalagmites and stalactites packed inside lava tubes remain the same today as thousands of years ago, and eroded rock walls beneath curtains of water still plunge hundreds of feet into glassy pools.
Stop and smell the roses, or in Maui's case, the fragrant Lokelani. Set your sights on the lava formations formed by the salty spray of the Pacific, or the Road to Hana—which many consider a "must" when visiting—which packs a punch of waterfalls, seascapes, lush gardens and bamboo forests.
