The beautiful island of Maui offers many attractions and activities for the tourist. The pace of life is slower here than on Oahu which encourages that more time be spent during a visit. Maui is an excellent place to visit for the following reasons:
1. Haleakala National Park provides a memorable experience either at sunrise, for a spectacular start to the day, or during the day, when visitors are treated to a bizarre landscape of colorful sand and cinder cones.
2. The Road to Hana offers a scenic and sometimes precipitous drive along the undulating north shore of the island with many opportunities to stop and/or explore the area.
3. Hawaii’s most famous luau can be found on Maui. The Lahaina Luau has delighted visitors to the island since 1986, offering authentic Native Hawaiian food and entertainment.
