Warm. Exotic. Remote. Unforgettable. All these describe beautiful Maui -- one group of Hawaii's breathtaking islands-- especially this time of year. It is plentiful in luxury accommodations and activities, which are as varied as the thousands of people that visit throughout the year. Whether you like to hike, shop, jog, sun bathe, ski, or just take in the beautiful scenery, Maui is a great place to vacation. It is definitely more than another beach vacation as there is so much more than beaches here. Travelers and natives can visit the historic Haleakala National Park which is home to the 10,023-foot-high dormant volcano, also known as Maui's biggest natural attraction. Visitors usually arrive before dawn to watch the sun rise over the volcano crater, but the park is enjoyable any time of day.
Outdoor lovers can participate in other activities such as snorkeling, whale-watching or...just laying out on one of Maui's 80 beaches! If relaxation is the purpose of your trip, many resorts offer wellness packages and activities designed to help you forget about your daily responsibilities at home, for a little R & R. There is always a mai tai, some music, or a masseuse somewhere just waiting to help you unwind.
Just like the daytime, the night offers no shortage of activities -- sunset cruises, dancing, museums, shows, or partying with the locals make for an unforgettable experience from sun up to sun down. You are certain to find multiple activities day or night that interest you and have you planning your next trip before you leave. You can book the perfect cruise for two or family vacation knowing there is something for everyone. Enjoy great food, a Broadway-type show, some boutique shopping or relax on a small ship cruise...it's up to you...
