Maui is regularly voted “Best Island in the World” by travel magazines. But, within Hawai‘i, local folks may not be convinced. Kaua‘i is prettier, they counter. Moloka‘i is more genuine. O‘ahu offers more action. The Big Island has an active volcano! What’s so great about the Valley Isle? Take a long weekend, dive deep into Maui’s heart and prepare to be dazzled.

 

What to Bring

A JACKET AND SOCKS.

Temperatures drop as you ascend the mountain. If you plan to explore Haleakalā, prepare for a wide range of weather.
