Maui is by far the most popular island destination in the world, in the US, and in Hawaii. Maui was voted Best Island in The World for twenty plus years by readers of Conde Naste. As the magazine changed its categories to separate The US and The World as distinct categories, Maui continues to take top place for Best Island in The US. Maui is known for its long sandy beaches of which Makena, also know as Big Beach, is the most popular. Aptly named Little Beach right next to Makena is known for nude sunbathing and is a short but challenging hike over a lava ridge. The Kamaole beaches in Kihei are also very popular and many prefer them for their convenient location in town and the fineness of their sand.
Maui is also known for surfing of all kinds. Kite Surfers ply the South shore right in front of Luana Kai as do Wind Surfers and it is one of the best wind destinations in the world. Big wave surfers ride the North Shore at spots like Ho’okipa and the famous huge wave spot called JAWS which is a challenger for world’s the biggest waves from October through April.
Maui is known for the many tropical waterfalls and lush vegetation on the road to Hana. Take a day out from your vacation rental to make the drive and enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery and vistas the world has to offer. Don’t forget to visit the world famous Haleakala at Sunrise for a breathtaking event early every morning.

Another historically cultural aspect of Maui is the Paniolo culture of Upcountry Maui. From Makawao to Kula, Keokea and Ulupalakua, Maui Paniolos have herded cattle with horses since the mid 1800’s.
Thanks to Paniolos, you can enjoy rodeos, horseback riding, and Maui Cattle Company’s completely pasture, grass raised beef. You can see these “happy cows” grazing all over Upcountry Maui.
