Maui Holidays

The ‘Valley Isle’ is beloved for its world-famous beaches with white, black and red sands perfect for sunbathing; spectacular coastline; views of migrating humpback whales (January-early April); farm-to-table cuisine and when it comes to outdoor recreation, Maui wins best in show with some of the best swimming, snorkelling, surfing and windsurfing in Hawaii.

Popular spots include Kaanapali Beach, where along with three miles of pristine white sand, the northernmost section is also known for the daily cliff diving ceremony and sunset torch lighting. Big Beach has wonderful views of neighbouring Molokini and Khaoolawe while snorkellers can explore the underwater world at Napili Bay, Kapalua Bay, Hana Bay or the small crescent-shaped island of Molokini, which is accessible only by boat.

Highlights away from the water include the Road to Hana, a journey which takes you through tropical rainforests, past waterfalls, around pools and past bamboo forests before you end in beautiful Hana. Another attraction is Haleakala National Park, home to Maui’s highest peak. The long winding road to the summit takes some time to drive up, but is well worth the effort - particularly to take in the sunrise or sunset. Maui’s abundant hiking trails offer solitude and scenic vistas, or perhaps you’d prefer adrenalin-pumping zipline adventure?
