The magical island of Maui, with its warm, gentle breezes, giant surfer waves and long stretches of glistening beaches can only by outdone by its exotic mountains and lush rainforests. Cool waterfalls cascading into serene tropical pools seem days away from civilization. However remote it may feel, Kahului, Maui’s largest city is just miles away. The city of less than 30,000 people offers a laid back, inviting atmosphere and a welcoming touch to an island unsurpassed in beauty and peaceful coexistence with the earth.
The landscape is dramatic. High mountains and old volcano cores offer a glimpse at the island’s geology and how it was formed millions of years ago. While the last volcanic eruption on Maui was over two hundred years ago, there is still plenty of evidence to be seen of the violent and unstoppable force of lava fields blazing across the island. Much of the island however is covered in dense rainforest, surrounded by gorgeous beaches. Take a drive and discover a hidden cove and enjoy the swaying palm trees and fresh sea air.
